The Benefits of

One of the newest upgrades to your membership is the website and discussion forum. What is a discussion forum? It is a site where people can hold conversations in the form of posted messages. Those messages are then archived and made available to you anytime and from anywhere.

Within a forum, a single conversation is called a “thread” or “topic.” It is set up in a hierarchical or tree-like structure and can have several subforums, each of which may have several topics. In High-Performance Talk, each new discussion started is called a thread, and can be replied to by any member.

The operative word here is members. is only for NCI members and provides an online peer-to-peer networking forum where you can ask questions, seek and offer advice, and converse with other Performance-Based Contractors across the HVAC industry and around the world. Think of it like the proverbial water cooler where everyone gathers to talk about things in an informal setting.

High-Performance Talk is also where you have access to NCI trainers and other staff members.

High-Performance Talk links you to your performance-based contracting peers like no other forum can. From CO to air to business practices, ask your fellow members (and NCI knowledge experts!) for advice.

Were you a fan of the old PerformanceTalk email list? You can participate with via email as well! We’ll help you walk through it if you’d like.
