The ACCA is changing the format of this year’s CEO/Contractor Forum, which will take place during the group’s March 17-20 annual conference.

For the first time, audience members will be able to ask chief executives of the major HVAC market companies questions directly instead of submitting them in advance to the program’s moderator.

"We once again have a strong panel of CEOs, who will share their insight on what is going on within our industry and give their opinions on how things are changing and improving, as well as where there are struggles," said Air Conditioning Contractors of America President and CEO Paul T. Stalknecht. "By changing the format this year and letting contractors ask the CEOs questions, we are allowing our attendees to truly set the schedule and pace for this signature event.”

Questions must still be general in nature and cannot cover warranty, pricing or inventory issues.
