ALEXANDRIA, Va. — The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) and the Indiana HVAC Association announced that the Indiana HVAC Association has become the latest Allied Contracting Organization (ACO) to affiliate with ACCA.

Allied Contracting Organizations are independent associations that partner with ACCA on the advancement of the HVACR industry’s technical excellence, business success, and legislative and regulatory goals. While ACCA and Indiana HVAC Association memberships remain separate, both organizations will promote the value of investing in strong representation at the local and national levels.

“We are very excited about this partnership and the opportunity to continue advocating on behalf of the HVACR industry,” said Jeremy Ash, Indiana HVAC Association Board of Directors president and Airtron Heating and Air Conditioning division manager. “With the help of ACCA’s advocacy tools and industry knowledge, the voice of Indiana contractors will be amplified on the local, state, and national levels.”

“The local networking and training events offered by the Indiana HVAC Association are an unbeatable opportunity for Indiana contractors to learn from best-in-class peers,” said Barton James, ACCA president and CEO. “We are excited to combine the strengths of ACCA’s advocacy and training tools with Indiana HVAC Association’s local relationships to amplify the voice of Indiana contractors and deliver training resources for their entire teams.”
This agreement will help both organizations better represent and support contractors in Indiana through a unified voice on legislative and regulatory issues, better coordination, cross-promotion, and reciprocal discounts on educational programs.
