Mokena, Ill. — The Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) will hold its annual Membership Meeting and Conference in Chicago on Tuesday, Sept. 18. This conference will be co‐located with Penton’s Mechanical Systems Week, giving RPA members and other mechanical industry leaders the opportunity to gather for networking, education, professional recognition and the advancement of radiant/hydronic technologies.
Conference attendees will enjoy two education sessions, a general membership meeting, an open board meeting and an early evening reception, where the winners of the 2012 System Showcase competition will be announced.
