New Jersey Leaders Receive Spirit of Federation Award
In 2011, two contractors in New Jersey spearheaded an effort to bring contractors from the northern and southern parts of the state together in a statewide association after legislation requiring HVACR contractors to become licensed with limited input from the industry was passed.
Bob McAllister of McAllister, The Service Company in Somers Point, NJ, and Fred Hutchinson of Hutchinson Plumbing Heating Cooling in Cherry Hill, NJ, started work on this new association in the winter of that year and formed a core of dedicated contractors to discuss what was happening in legislative and regulatory circles, what opportunities were still out there, and the need for a unified voice. Finally, in September, the chapter was formed and united with ACCA North Jersey to create the statewide organization, ACCA New Jersey.
For their efforts and dedication to uniting the contractors in New Jersey, they were honored at the ACCA Annual Conference with the Spirit of Federation Award.
