Workforce development issues are significant challenges that heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) contractors must address.

ACCA enlists leaders in communications, veteran recruitment, and professional development to speak at the ACCA Annual Conference and provide contractors with important tools to address these issues.

Highlights of the ten workforce-focused sessions include:

  • “Hire More Veterans Today,” with Tim Sweeney and DJ Holder of Orion Talent;
  • “Old School Work Meets New School Employees – Tips for Success,” with Wendy Riemann of 1492 Communications;
  • “Navigating Difficult Conversations,” with Rob Stader of Lee Company; and,
  • “I NEED HELP! Proven Methods to Find and Keep Experienced Residential Technicians, Plumbers, and Electricians,” with Trevor Flannigan of HomeServiceChats and Joshua Davis of AccuTemp Services.

“ACCA’s current Chairman, Don Langston, set ACCA on a mission to help contractors find the next generation of employees,” said Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA President and CEO. “To be successful at hiring and retaining the next generation, contractors must know how to address the communication gaps between baby boomers and millennials. ACCA’s 2018 conference speakers will show contractors how to overcome these obstacles and recruit and retain professional staff.”

In 2018 the IE3 Show will help you “Up the Ante” for your company, and the entire industry!

ACCA has developed a new schedule and has invited high power keynote and learning lab speakers, like those above, who will help you break through plateaus and improve your business. So, get ready to double down, and “Up The Ante” February 12 – 14, 2018.

Several of ACCA’s partners allow contractors to use their co-op funds to pay for conference registration. Those partners include: Bryant; Carrier; Daikin; Goodman; and Rheem. Please contact your manufacturer representative or distributor to learn more about how to use those funds.
