We may not be able to gather in person right now, but we recognize the importance of staying connected, especially at a time like this. If the HVTech community is good at one thing, it's using technology to find creative solutions to difficult problems. So we're still planning a meetup this April - right from the comfort of your own home.

So join us for our first ever virtual meetup: https://zoom.us/j/570567119
We look forward to seeing you.
*It Wouldn't be HVTech without "Meet Your Neighbor"*

We recognize that human connection is a significant part of what makes our live events so special. We want to carry that value over into our virtual event, so we will be facilitating a virtual "Meet Your Neighbor." We'll utilize the Zoom "Breakout Room" feature to break the webinar into smaller sessions. We encourage you all to use this time to get to know one another and share your experiences.
