Air Conditioning Contractors of America Join Family Enterprise USA to Support America’s Largest Private Employer, Family Business


ACCA’s, with its 3,000 Members, Will Support Efforts Focused on Understanding the Challenges of Family Businesses, Fighting Taxes, Negative Regulations


The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) is the newest member of Family Enterprise USA, supporting America’s largest private employer, family businesses.

The 3,000-member strong ACCA, based in Alexandria, Va., also recently gave its support to the Congressional Family Business Caucus, with its core mission of raising awareness on the importance of generationally-owned family businesses to the economy and addressing unfair taxation, workplace development, and regulations that hurt growth.

Family businesses are the largest private employers in the country, accounting for 83.3 million jobs, or 59 percent of the country’s private workforce, and contribute $7.7 trillion in GDP annually to the economy, according to research.

The Air Conditioning Contractors of America’s 3,000 members employ 60,000 air conditioning professionals and are recognized as industry leaders. They are responsible for designing, installing, and maintaining HVAC-R systems that heat and cool homes, protect our food supply, ensure the possibility of modern medicine, and enable data centers to operate.  

“Working with Family Enterprise USA and their efforts to help all family-owned business will be an important benefit for our members,” said Barton James, President and CEO, Air Conditioning Contractors of America. “Given our organizations’ shared set of ideals and policy goals, I am very excited to explore the many ways in which we can collaborate for mutual benefit. By combining our resources and expertise, we can amplify our impact and better serve our members and the broader family business community,” said James.

ACCA provides its membership with networking, education, and advocacy services that support the business development interests of its members while championing the national health of the HVACR industry.

“We’re excited to have the ACCA and their membership, which are largely family-owned businesses, supporting the efforts of Family Enterprise USA,” said Pat Soldano, President, Family Enterprise USA and the Policy and Taxation Group, both bipartisan advocates for family business. “ACCA represents an important segment of America’s family-owned businesses,” she said.  “Family businesses, like those who are members of ACCA, are big business and our leaders must understand how vital they are to our economy. ACCA will help us get this message out to our legislative leaders.”
