“AHR Expo® Plumbing and Hydronics Symposium-PM Live” is the name of an interesting and informative program on plumbing and hydronic heating that will be offered at AHR Expo® for the first time, Jan. 22, 2008.

The symposium will feature four well-known industry experts in two separate seminars designed to help plumbing and heating contractors enhance their business operations.  The sessions are being presented byPlumbing & Mechanicalmagazine, a BNP publication.

The first seminar, titled, “Leadership Power,” is designed to help contractors discover “success with less stress.” Hosted byPMcolumnistsAl LeviandEllen Rohr, the hands-on seminar will assist contractors in learning how to systematically solve problems and shore up their financial foundation, and hone their leadership skills.
