Here are just a few of the benefits of a MACCA membership:
Networking: MACCA hosts monthly dinner meetings which enable members the opportunity to gain potential contacts, clients and partners who can help their business move to the next level and become more prominent in the industry. Additionally, MACCA members can build long-term relationships and partnerships that are mutually beneficial. Our monthly meetings provide a forum for like-minded individuals to come together to share ideas, strengthen ties, find new jobs and make connections that would otherwise not be possible.
Training & Education: MACCA holds workshops and classes which help members continue their education and development allowing them to learn and grow in their profession which is crucial in getting to the top of their industry. Additionally, MACCA offers an Apprenticeship Program designed to equip field employees with less than three years' experience the ability to become real field professionals.
This in-house training and education gives members constant opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and mentorship that allows them to share experience and knowledge.
Certification: A handful of MACCA's monthly dinner meetings allow members to receive CEU's for license renewal and NATE and EPA certifications. These certifications make for better practices in the industry and provide a level of prestige and reliability in the minds of clients and customers that is invaluable.
Information: A MACCA membership comes with access to news and developments that affect your business and the industry. Outside of the usual communication of members with each other, MACCA provides newsletters, email updates and informative resources that help its members stay on top of recent developments in the field. These informative resources can be accessed from our home page and cover topics related to business owners, technicians and marketing/sales.
Best Practices: For current and new people to the industry, a MACCA membership can be vital to learning these practices and performing the best work possible. The fast pace of technology and market competition means that these practices are constantly updating and changing, and it is important to take advantage of any practices that can improve your business. Collectively, the MACCA Board of Directors has over 500 years of experience in the industry and can be an asset and wealth of knowledge.
Exchange of Ideas: MACCA's networking events and website allow our members access to information about updates to the industry. Additionally, members have access to the membership directory which enables members the opportunity to share innovative ideas that can help each other and the association.
