“It will be one of the largest gatherings of plumbers, electricians, air conditioning technicians, landscapers and world-class service professionals across our franchise family in the history of Neighborly,” said Dina Dwyer-Owens, Chairwoman and CEO of The Neighborly.

The reunion theme – Carnival: Step Up – will invite guests to ‘Step right up,’ join in a celebration and do exciting things with their business in the year ahead.
The keynote speaker will be motivational speaker and former NBA star Walter Bond, “Mr. Accountability.”
