YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT EGIA – THE ENERGY GAS INDUSTRY ASSOCIATION
As contractors in the field service management industry, one trap we fall in to is a tendency to get laser focused on the day to day operations of our own businesses. Oftentimes this can come at the expense of opportunities to learn more about our industries, network with others, and gain valuable insight in to industry trends.
One thing you can do to make sure this doesn’t happen is to get involved with an organization that understands the field service management business. One such organization that everyone should be familiar with is the Electric & Gas Industries Association (EGIA). They are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping contracting businesses thrive and increase their competitive edge.
EGIA offers multiple services to contractors including industry studies, a contractor marketplace and numerous educational opportunities. One of the things we are particularly proud of is the EGIA Contractor University, where our CEO James Leichter is a founding faculty member. The EGIA Contractor University focuses on courses for contractors to help them drive revenue, increase profits and develop a successful, efficient field service management business. They offer Industry Best Practices courses and even an HVAC Sales Academy.
We encourage all of our partners and customers to check EGIA out and see if membership is right for your business. https://www.egia.org/join
