HARDI Holds First HVACRCongressional Reception

Heating, Airconditioning and Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) announces the success of the first ever joint HVACR Congressional reception.

More than 250 Congressional staffers attended the first HVACR reception on the Hill, August 3 that was sponsored by HARDI, ACCA, AHRI, PHCC, and North American Technicians Excellence (NATE).

Many staffers attendance commented on this event being the first they could recall being truly channel-wide, and called the event a great testament to the partnerships within the HVACR industry.

For snacking, there was a 250-pound cake from the famous Carlo's Bakery shaped like a city block complete with commercial and residential buildings equipped with life-like HVAC and water heating systems.

"This event provided our industry a large forum to explain who our industry is and what type of economic contribution the HVACR industry makes to our nation," said HARDI Executive Vice President/Chief Operation Officer, Talbot Gee. "Attendees were particularly interested in hearing suggestions on what HARDI members would like to see done to spur growth," Gee said.

"Part of the success of this event comes from the fact that there is a HARDI member company or branch in nearly every Congressional District in the country. Our membership touched the offices of every attendee at the reception," said HARDI Manager of Government Affairs, Jon Melchi.
