About Next Level
As our workforce and customers evolve, the approach to effective leadership must transform. Traditional command and control leadership is giving way to a more connected, collaborative, and flexible approach to managing people and performance. The next generation of HVAC owners and managers need to develop their own leadership and management style. Achieving that requires knowledge and how to use the tools, resources, and the HVAC community to accomplish these goals.
ACCA Next Level is here to help the next generation of your business succeed. Attendees will learn to build the business and personal skills they need to excel at their jobs through professional development sessions and networking opportunities. Attendees will view themselves as professionals, understand the importance of the bottom line, establish tangible goals, and discover why customer relationships matter to your HVAC business.
In addition to General and Breakout sessions, there will be a trip to visit Emerson’s Helix Innovation Center on the campus of the University of Dayton. The Helix features full-scale, simulated environments, including a working commercial kitchen, a two-story residential home, a grocery store, a data center, and a commercial building. The center focuses on advancing ideas from concept to prototype quickly while testing them under real-world conditions.
Prices are: $499 for ACCA Members and $699 for Non-Members.
Register for both Service Managers and Next Level: $799 ACCA Members and $999 for Non-Members
Meet Experts & Influencers Face-to-Face
No matter how experienced you are, everyone can continue to learn. Working in a small business is often isolating, and without exposure to a variety of points of view, we can miss new ideas and trends that can impact future results.
Next Level will expose you to new ways of conducting your business and demonstrate how to be more productive. This event is a great opportunity to meet your business idols, and is filled with industry experts you can learn from.
The Energy of Like-Minded Individuals
There’s nothing like being in a room of like-minded people. Other people who are willing to take time away from the office to learn something new. Other people who want to “better” themselves.
When you sit in a session, you discover that you’re not alone in wanting to improve your skills and bring something back to your company. That energy is unmatched compared to online learning channels, regardless of how great the content might be.
Break Out of Your Comfort Zone
It’s easy to read a blog post or listen to a podcast from your office. You don’t have to make small talk while your YouTube video loads up.
While there are those among us who are born networkers, for many of us, live events and other people can be a challenge. Breaking out of our comfort zones is just the type of action we need to take to change our old ways of thinking that have left us in a professional rut in our businesses.
Social media can help keep you connected to peers who are both local and “far away.” However, there’s no substitution for meeting someone IRL (in real life).
Next Level is filled with opportunities to mix and mingle, form new relationships, and strengthen existing ones. Over coffee, or a beer, make a connection with the perfect vendor or prospect. At a breakout session, find yourself sitting beside your next mentor. If you don’t go, your toughest competitor will be sitting in your seat.
Invest In Yourself
Leaving the office and sharpening your skills is investing in yourself. It’s admitting that you’re worth it. It’s acknowleding that you still have things to learn. That you can get better.
It’s an investment in yourself, your career, and even your company. When you purchase that meeting ticket, you’re saying that you’re investing in your own growth.
Hearing what speakers have done to make their businesses so successful can motivate you to follow in their footsteps. It could be that they inspire you to add something new or change the way you do things.
Whatever it is, meeting others who are successful in your industry should inspire and motivate you to reach the next level of success.
Schedule Of Events
During this session, we explore a six-step process that gives the participants the tools they need and can use immediately. Attendees will learn from the content, share with each other, and discuss the best practices they use to create a workplace culture that attracts and retains the very top employees while increasing profitability, productivity and reducing downtime.
Chris Crew, Blue Collar Success Group
In this takeaway-packed session, Chris will share the three things he focused on to help his $18 million service company achieve a consistent 20% net profit. Then, he will break each of these three areas down into logical steps, so you can stop wishing and procrastinating, and start simplifying your business to generate the results you deserve. He will provide you with the building blocks you didn’t know you needed to take your business to the next level. Chris will explain how you, too, can stay true to your vision while building a highly profitable company with his three key pillars.

Is it just how things are today? Or is it something we, as managers, coaches and leaders may be able to address or change? In this session, Frank Besednjak will discuss the key characteristics to look for in employees who have interest in being promoted to a leadership position. We will also examine the main reasons managers fail and how to avoid them and/or fix them.
