CAAG Fall Seminar 2019

Nov. 13, 2019

Macon, GA

Our popular Fall Seminar has been scheduled for Nov. 13 at the Sec. of States' offices in Macon where it has been held for the last several years. 

This Seminar is where the top HVAC professionals in the industry in Georgia meet for a 1/2 day seminar to hear industry experts speak on topics that are of great importance to them and receive 4 hours of CE for the day.  

Members also have the opportunity to offer their input into issues in which CAAG is involved.  

This meeting is also a great place to network with the most successful members of the industry.  We also have various exhibitors from industry suppliers there to exhibit and answer questions.

Once you come to this meeting, you will not miss it again.

At this time we have these speakers:

  • Industry Update-

       by: Jeffrey Mingledorff,  



  • Indoor Air Quality and Building Healthy Homes

       by: Chris Howells, Aprilaire


  • Asset Protection -

        by: Larry Oxenham  


                  American Society of Asset Protection

Larry spoke at our Annual Conference in March and everyone really enjoyed his presentation.  He really did not have enough time to go into detail and fully answer all the attendees' questions so he is returning to elaborate on his earlier presentation.  I think you will seriously benefit from this program.
