Providing for Our Industry Through Thick and Thin


Posted on:

As 2022 progresses, I’d like to take the time to share a few member benefits to help you have a successful year. With the challenges of supply chain stress, workforce concerns, and the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, it is important for ACCA to provide as much support as we can to help alleviate these burdens. 

We offer a variety of member benefits for you to use, including cost savings for your business and families as well as workforce development resources.  

Our partnership with Savings4Members provides members with discounts and solutions for every aspect of your business. With savings categories including operations, finance, shipping, and HR, Savings4Members is a great resource for your company. More specifically, these discounts include fuel, business texting, freight shipping, payroll, rental vehicles, and supplies, to name a few.  

In 2021, alone, members who participated in the Savings4Members network saved over $307,000 on products and services that they use every day. From that total, members saved $231,040 on fuel purchases, $54,234 on credit card processing fees, $3,913 on essential office products, and $2,503 on payroll, HR Services, and employee benefits.  

To access the Savings4Members network, click here. This savings site also highlights savings opportunities outside of the Savings4Members network. From discounts on recruiting services through Orion Talent to utility safety work boots from Keen, our member discount page is full of savings opportunities. These savings don’t stop at business needs, they also cover travel and family expenses. Through our savings page, ACCA Members can save on movie tickets, sporting events, theme park admissions, hotels, and much more.  

Another exciting member benefit is our new HVACR Workforce Center, featuring CareerPlug. The HVACR Workforce Center is a place where owners and service managers can find confidence when it comes to finding talent and recruiting. The Workforce Center provides you with purposeful, easy-to-use tools, and solutions to be the most effective in your role. You can access the Workforce Center here. 

Within the Workforce Center, you can find member-exclusive workforce resources, access to the Contractor Forum, and usage of CareerPlug. 

CareerPlug’s hiring software helps associations attract more qualified candidates, identify the right candidates with confidence, and improve hiring results. It is an easy-to-use system that automates many of the tedious, manual steps of the hiring process. The built-in evaluation tools also help you to confidently identify, evaluate, and hire the right person.  

ACCA members receive a free basic CareerPlug account that comes with a branded careers page, pre-built job templates, and a configured hiring process. The built-in evaluation tools help you confidently identify, interview, evaluate, and hire the right person. For greater success, you can upgrade the free account to a paid Pro subscription at an exclusive partnership rate of $495/year for unlimited job postings to top job boards including Indeed, ZipRecruiter, GoogleJobs, Facebook Jobs, etc., and use of personality assessments. To learn more about what CareerPlug is and how it will apply to your business, watch an informational webinar here. 

I am grateful for the perseverance of our industry, especially through these trying times. Please know that ACCA is on your side, and will do everything we can to support you, no matter the challenge. We look forward to seeing you at the ACCA 2022 Conference & Expo, March 28-30, at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, MO!
