ARLINGTON, Va. - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) has implemented a new staff structure and made several promotions, according to an announcement from Paul T. Stalknecht, ACCA president and CEO.

Stalknecht indicated in a memo to the association's officers, directors, and chapter leaders that new opportunities have arisen which are allowing ACCA to streamline its operations to better align functions and manage resources.

"As we enter the association's fourth straight year of growth, I recognize that we must continually monitor our operations to ensure that we are flexible in meeting our members' continually changing needs," Stalknecht stated.

Effective immediately, ACCA's national office will be structured into three operating divisions, each led by a division vice president reporting directly to Stalknecht.

The Business Operations & Membership division, which will be led by Kevin Holland, incorporates all of ACCA's business enterprises and membership services, including member recruitment and retention; product and event marketing; communications and public relations; educational programming; chapter and industry relations; sponsorship and advertising sales; and information technology.

The Finance & Administration division, led by Hilary Atkins, will include human resources, accounting, association governance, government relations, event management, and legal compliance. Atkins will also continue to serve as ACCA's general counsel.

The Research & Technology division, led by Glenn Hourahan, will continue to focus on technical services for the HVACR industry, codes and standards, work with related industry groups, and technical product development.

Michael Honeycutt, an 11-year ACCA veteran executive who most recently served as senior vice president & chief of staff, recently left the association to pursue a lifelong dream of college teaching in upstate New York. However, he will continue to serve in a consulting capacity as advisor to the CEO.

In addition, Stalknecht announced that Sandra Kyles has been promoted to director of Conferences & Events, and Colleen Van Gieson De Jong will be returning to ACCA in January as director of Industry Relations.

"It's a privilege to work with the dynamic, talented national ACCA staff," Stalknecht said. "The energy level is high, and our commitment to providing top-notch service to our members is strong. With this new flattened structure in place, we are even better able to meet the changing needs of the HVACR industry going forward."
