Breakout Session

Breakout Sessions

Led By Your Fellow Contractors

This year, we’re trying something new.  Every single one of our break-out sessions are led by contractors like yourself.  They set out on a mission to sell and deliver a higher level of performance to their customers.  And now these trailblazers will share with you their successes, strategies, and how they overcame their failures as they continue on this journey.

“I came to Summit with HIGH EXPECTATIONS and was impressed. You guys really do want to better our industry. THANKS”

Service Technician, Wilson Refrigeration & Electric, Inc.

This year’s theme is more than a catch-phrase. It truly embodies the spirit and goals of this one-of-a-kind event. Our featured speakers will each focus on a different aspect of selling and delivering high performance HVAC systems with a special focus on Air Upgrades – the latest “product” NCI has helped its members and students deliver to end customers. Air Upgrades are designed to surgically address and solve many indoor comfort, air quality, safety, and energy efficiency issues in homes and buildings.
