FORT WORTH, Texas (July 20, 2017) – Some of the brightest minds in Heat, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration will convene at Tarrant County College South when Women in HVACR (WHVACR) — a national organization that provides networking opportunities, mentoring and education for women in the HVACR industry — hosts its first stand-alone conference in the state-of-the-art Center of Excellence for Energy Technology. The conference will be held Thursday, September 28 at TCC South, 5301 Campus Drive in Fort Worth.
Several informative workshops and educational sessions will be offered for industry professionals, experts and students. Speakers include Matt Michel, CEO of Service Roundtable; Elizabeth McCormick, former U.S. Army Black Hawk pilot; Rhonda Wiggins, HVACR instructor at Hennepin Technical College; Melissa Santillan, TCC graduate and current salesperson at AC Supply Company; and Jessica McKinney, HARDI (Heating, Air Conditioning & Refrigeration Distributors International) Ambassador.
“The entire TCC South community is proud to host this year’s Women in HVACR conference in our LEED Platinum-certified Center of Excellence for Energy Technology, an award-winning facility,” said Chris Noonan, chair of the business technology department.
“This conference will show our students and the community that there is more than just turning a wrench and fixing air conditioners. Participants can meet with industry professionals and explore the many career opportunities available in the HVACR industry.”
Now in its 14th year, the WHVACR conference was previously held in conjunction with a partner organization’s annual event.
“Partnering with TCC South, which is committed to training new female technicians, further enhances Women in HVACR’s legacy of empowering women to succeed through networking opportunities, mentoring and education,” said Julie Decker, current WHVACR president and national sales manager for Atco Rubber Products. “Thanks to the support of our members and sponsors, WHVACR is able to open a new chapter in the growth of the organization.”
