So at the C-2000 Super Meeting XIX, March 8-10, "professionalism" was the word of the day. It was reinforced through the multitude of educational programs offered to help members take their businesses to the next level. More than 330 people from 180 member plumbing, HVAC and electrical companies attended the three-day event held in the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, Texas.
Over the three days, there were 17 different business workshops, two keynote speakers, great idea contests, plus a vendor participation night.
Here are some show highlights:
The top two reasons to join a company are personal and professional growth, and the culture of the company. The top two reasons to leave a company are the employee's direct supervisor and the culture of the company. What does this mean? Harris says you better know your company's culture and align everything else toward that. Once you realize the culture of your company, everything else becomes clearer. It will be easier to spot a person who will fit with your company, not to mention knowing the advantages your company offers over your competitors.
It is the goal of Contractors 2000 to increase the standards and success of the industry as a whole through education and sharing of information. Super Meeting XIX was in line with that goal, according to Greg Niemi, President and COO of C-2000.
Contractors 2000's next Super Meeting will be held in Orlando, Fla., Oct. 18-20. For information regarding C-2000, call 651/426-2000.
