President's Message - Winter 2019 - Volume 2

I am very proud to announce that we have established an annual scholarship program! The goal of this program it to help students, with interests in the Mechanical/HVAC Industry, attain a higher level of education. High School and College Students are eligible for the award. These students must be either the child or grandchild of a current MACC member, or the child or grandchild of an employee who is employed by a MACC member. This scholarship is a great opportunity to encourage young people to explore a career in the trades. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the nation’s need for workers in the skilled trades is increasing much faster than the growth of employment overall. We hope that this scholarship will not only encourage more students to get involved in the HVAC industry, but also help those students who are currently on their path to a career in the industry. Please visit our website for more information! 

MACC recently hosted its first event of the year, an Islanders Game at the Nassau Coliseum. The night was graciously sponsored by Daikin and USI Insurance Services. The sold out event was a great way to start off the new year! Attendees enjoyed VIP access to the Grant Thornton Lounge and a complimentary Islanders jersey. Thank you to everyone who attended!

In this issue, we have a great spotlight on one of our Past Presidents, John Ottaviano, who is retiring. For more than two decades, John has played a crucial role in the growth and success of this organization. Be sure to read his spotlight!

Don’t forget about the great technical training workshops that we offer throughout the year. These workshops are listed on our website. Some of the topics include, air conditioning maintenance, compressor maintenance, and trouble shooting gas heating. Space is limited in these workshops, so reserve your spots today!

Sincerely,

Jimmy Moyen
