President's Message - Fall 2018 - Volume 1
On September 13th, MACC hosted another successful edition of our valuable event series, Survive & Thrive. Not only did we have a great turnout, the stories shared by our speakers served as great takeaways for all who attended. It is always incredibly beneficial to hear from industry leaders about how they got to where they are and what can be learned from their experiences. I would like to extend a huge thank you to the speakers of the night, Matthew Sher and Jim Carlson. I know I can speak for everyone who attended by saying that we appreciate you taking the time to speak to all of us.

As we all know, the HVAC industry is ever changing. That’s why being a part of an organization, like MACC, is extremely important. At MACC, we work hard to ensure that our members are up to date on the latest law changes, new technology, better business practices, etc., by bringing that information directly to members at our monthly meetings. MACC also focuses greatly on making sure that our members, and their employees, are properly trained and educated. We understand the true importance of investing in not only your own training, but the training of your new techs. Our Seminar Program has been a great success and we look forward to expanding it with new classes! 

A recent change in our industry, and several others, is the new Site Safety Training (SST) Curriculum. Local Law 196 of 2017 requires certain workers and supervisors to receive safety training at construction sites that are required to designate a Construction Superintendent, Site Safety Coordinator or Site Safety Manager. In order to assure that our members are in compliance with this law, we have scheduled a 4-day OSHA 30 Training Class, which will begin in October. Be sure to check out our website for more information.

Our next membership meeting will be our annual Round Table Meeting, which will be held on November 1st at Milito’s Restaurant in Huntington Station. Please keep an eye out for more information on topics that will be discussed. I look forward to seeing everyone there!
