Reach for the Stars game during Summit 2022
Dawn Mroczek of GV’s Heating and Will Horner of Canco Climatecare compete in the Reach for the Stars game

The Opening General Session kicked off Tuesday morning, March 29th. All attendees were treated to a rousing multimedia introduction, immediately followed by an interactive game show called “Reach for the Summit.” By the way, all general sessions took place in the same room with the preferred partner trade show.

This game show began by selecting two random contractors from the audience to answer multiple-choice questions from real-world installation and service scenarios. Then, the audience then had the opportunity to vote via the National Comfort Institute (NCI) Summit 2022 mobile app for the answer they thought was correct. The contractors earned points for correct answers, with the winner taking home a new NSI 6000 Low-Level CO Monitor.

Moreover, each question was followed up with commentary by David Holt and David Richardson, who discussed the merits of each answer and which way they felt the audience would vote. The winner was Dawn Mroczek of GV’s Heating and Air Conditioning. Coming in second place was Will Horner of Canco ClimateCare. He received an Amazon gift card.

After the morning breakout workshops, contractors reconvened for the popular contractors-only Idea Meeting, hosted by Michael Greany of Aire Rite Air Conditioning and Refrigeration and Mike Weil of NCI. This meeting was divided into two 45-minute sessions: one dedicated to High-Performance Lead Generation, the other one to Sales.

Attendees presented their ideas on each topic and then voted for those they felt were the best. The winning ideas were from:

  • Lead Generation: A tie between Earlene Marron of Airtech Air Conditioning and Chuck Worley of Worley Home Services.
  • Sales: Dawn Mroczek of GV’s Heating.

Summit 2022 Partner Trade Show

Eighteen exhibitors managed their table-top displays all around the general session ballroom, so contractors had the opportunity to talk with them during breaks and regularly scheduled tradeshow hours. Exhibitors also participated in NCI’s annual Preferred Partner Prize Drawing. Attendees received “game cards” that had to be stickered by each exhibitor, then turned in to be eligible for the drawing.
