    We need new blood. Lets' just pick someplace we all are willing to go and find a member here who lives there and make them host it.

    Loseranna might be nice.

    We have been to everyone of them and had a really good time-always. It would be nice if we could find someone on the West Coast to step up to the plate. Ain't we got any members from Portland Oregon ????? This is the list of the places the HVAC-Talk conventions have been so far.

    The views and opinions posted here are my own. They do not reflect the corporate policies of my employer and will most likely get me fired at some point.

    I'm gonna take a WAG that the wives who usually attend the convention are not going to think too highly of that. Then again, Hugh might be an attraction for them as well.

    This should be said more often with the resources now available, especially with all the Pro's willing to give free advice here. I just guess it is part of the Governments trend to dumb down America! I say that because I now work in a County School System in Maryland & I do not believe that we have 1 expert HVAC Mechanic, mainly because the HVAC Techs started out as Grounds workers mowing grass, then would move up based on the Governments rules to give job openings to in house employees 1st.

    Thank God, that in a way this type of hiring practice is going by the wayside, but we still have to wait for the existing guys to retire or come up with a continueing education plan with Tests that must be passed in order for these guys to maintain their Position & PayGrade.

    Travel is kinda lop-sided (as opposed to a central location), however there is always lots of things to do at key Gulf Coast towns. NO is a fun place, so is Gulf Port MS.

    Atlanta has some attractions... and my area (NE of town) has places to gather. There is a park a few miles away with a large pavillion we could get (rental)... Lots of room and a BBQ pit if anyone wants to be the grill-master.

    See !!! Now you're talking. We just need someone to host the convention. Atlanta would be a great place. You could have it late in the year like October or early Nov. and the weather would still be nice.

    As host all you would have to do is line up a hotel. Pick out a place to get-together on Friday night. A big old BBQ on Saturday sounds good.(doesn't have to be) Sunday get together is optional.

    The whole key to the success of these conventions is that the host has it in his hometown. He knows the area and what to do. The attendees don't waste a lot of time trying to find out "what" to do. The host has the whole thing planned out for the weekend.
