Highlighting Our Industry at ACCA 2022

Posted on:

ACCA would like to thank everyone who was able to join us in St. Louis for the ACCA 2022 Conference & Expo. ACCA 2022 featured a sold-out expo floor and over 40 educational speakers, including our amazing keynote speaker, Gerry O’Brion, What Big Brands Know founder, sponsored by Rheem and RUUD. Speakers talked about a variety of topics that covered everything from technical and codes issues to succession planning, recruiting, and relationship-building. 

I am especially thankful that ACCA members who attended were able to share their thoughts and insights on ACCA’s advocacy activities at the ACCA Town Hall. ACCA is the voice of HVACR contractors, advocating on your behalf to congress and to state legislators, utilities, code officials, media, manufacturers, and more. Hearing directly from attendees was vital, and we appreciate learning more about your concerns, how ACCA can be more supportive of positive laws and regulations, and fight those that would negatively impact our industry and your bottom-line. As you know, everything ACCA does is member-driven and member-focused, so we appreciate attendees sharing their thoughts and concerns during this important session.  

ACCA 2022 also featured the Manufacturer Leadership Forum and the Contractor Forum Live. Both sessions provided attendees with valuable insights into the most pressing issues facing our industry, like supply chain issues and the EPA’s cylinder ban. It was wonderful to see everyone come together for one common goal: advancing and protecting our industry.
