Despite all the gloom and doom from Washington and the media, there are indications the latest Omicron variant should help us achieve the herd immunity needed to transform it from Pandemic to Endemic. If it does, COVID 19 will take its place alongside the other flu viruses as just part of life.

One thing is for sure, most Americans are ready to reconnect, to move on, and will not support further lock downs. Most of us feel the need to get together in communities both locally and beyond.

NCI’s Summit 2022: Time To Reconnect and Celebrate!

Nearly two years has passed since High-Performance HVAC contractors last met in person. We are beyond ready to spend time with our brothers and sisters, break bread, share war stories, and focus on the future as we grow and evolve in the High-Performance corner of our industry.

NCI is ready to help you reconnect and celebrate your toughness and steadfastness navigating your businesses through the past few years to become stronger and better than ever! This year’s Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona on March 27-31, is the perfect place to do that.

I could go over all the great sessions, breakout workshops, and social events, but you can read all about that at
Instead, I want to take this time to remind us about the spirit of this annual meeting.

Nearly 19 years ago we launched Summit to give High-Performance HVAC contractors their own unique place to gather with fellow like-minded professionals.

At Summit we learn from each other and from NCI instructors and coaches. We freely share our knowledge and experiences with old friends as well as those just entering this new industry.

A Unique Industry Event

Summit is much more than just another industry conference. It’s become the place where we reconnect and celebrate excellence among contractors who strive to do the right thing. High-Performance Contractors don’t just promise performance, they prove it through measured, delivered results.

These contractors are not satisfied with the status quo. They believe every customer deserves the safest, healthiest, most comfortable, and energy efficient indoor environment possible.

As I think back to Summits past, the most valuable conversations I was privy to happened in informal gatherings during meals, breaks, and after hours. It’s hard to describe the spirit of kinship and sharing that occurs during these impromptu gatherings and often spirited debates.

I’ve never experienced such a mixture of sincerity, pride, and humility at any other industry event. It’s common to witness folks baring their souls and sharing frustrations as well as successes in these informal conversations.

Summit has always been more than advanced learning. It’s truly defined by the contractors who attend and immerse themselves in the overall experience. Over the years we’ve seen much camaraderie, laughter, joy, tears of sadness and happiness, as well as new lifetime friendships forged, and long-time friendships renewed.

When we ask attendees what they like the most about Summit, the most common response is the sense of community, even family.
