Event Information
2018 AHRI State Summit
Date: March 7 — 8, 2018
Location: The Citizen Hotel, Autograph Collection

The two-day AHRI State Summit presents an opportunity for members of the HVACR and water heating industry to communicate directly with key Massachusetts policy makers about the positive impact of our industry on jobs, comfort, health, and productivity in their state. As elected officials at the federal level continue to debate and shift priorities on many key initiatives, the uncertainty has created opportunity for state governments, including Massachusetts, to develop and advance their own energy and environmental policies that affect your company and the entire HVACR and water heating industry.  Lawmakers in Massachusetts need to know our industry’s position when deliberating important policy decisions impacting your business, your employees, and your customers. We look forward to seeing you in Boston this March! 

At the conference, you will:

·    Meet with key legislative, executive, and regulatory decision makers in Massachusetts;

·    Educate and inform Massachusetts officials about your company and the industry;

·      Hear from business leaders in Massachusetts about the current political climate; and 

·      Network with industry colleagues and AHRI staff at the various events planned on your behalf.
