AHRI’s 2016 Public Policy Symposium will come to the Willard Intercontinental Hotel in Washington, D.C., March 15-16. The institute has announced that Ed Gillespie will serve as keynote speaker for the event.

Gillespie, a communications strategist, has advised leaders in business, politics, and government. He will speak to AHRI members on a number of topics, including the presidential election and how Washington politics can impact the HVACR industry.

AHRI says its Public Policy Symposium is designed to bring members together with key public officials to discuss important issues facing the HVACR and water heating industry. The two-day event provides participants with the opportunity for face-to-face meetings with lawmakers and Congressional staff on Capitol Hill, and with key officials in federal agencies. 

AHRI staff will coordinate small group meetings with House and Senate staff and members of Congress based on participants' geographic location or policy relevancy. AHRI will provide briefing materials and talking points.
