Are there any exceptions to the 10/20/30% member discounts?
QA Accreditation fees will retain their $600/$800 member/non-member pricing for all tiers, and you can pay the fee with ACCA Bucks. ACCA Solar Forum is not included in discounts.

What can I spend my ACCA Bucks on?
ACCA events, live virtual courses, ComfortU, products, QA accreditation, 608 testing, awards, membership for additional locations, and anything else ACCA sells except your next membership renewal.

Can anybody at my company redeem our ACCA Bucks?
That’s up to you! Primary contacts will have the ability to grant access for additional staff in the member portal. Empowering your entire team to access ACCA training without chasing down a credit card or filing an expense report is one of the great advantages of ACCA Bucks.

What happens to unspent ACCA Bucks?
Unspent ACCA Bucks will be dedicated towards ACCA’s mission on December 31 of the year after they are credited. For example, ACCA Bucks credited for a membership term beginning 3/1/22 will be available through 12/31/23. You can view your balance in the Member Portal.

My renewal isn’t due for a while. Can I upgrade sooner?
Yes! Simply call the membership team at 703-824-8854 or email us at membership@acca.org. We’ll apply the remaining value of your current membership towards a new upgraded membership.

Is monthly pricing available for upgraded membership tiers?
We anticipate monthly pricing will be available with an annual agreement. We’re working on a beta test for this option, so please contact the membership team at 703-824-8854 or email at membership@acca.org if interested.

What is the expectation of membership for additional locations and how are they defined?
The growing trend of industry consolidation makes it essential for contractors with multiple locations to pay their fair share and add their voice to ACCA’s advocacy in every community where they operate. It’s not our intent to seek membership for every warehouse or call center within a market, but if you expand to new metro areas or acquire and continue operating additional brands, you can add them to your membership for as little as $400/year for each location. That investment provides every part of your team full access to ACCA’s learning resources, delivers leads from the Contractor Locator, and ensures ACCA has the resources to fight for you. Contact 703-824-8854 or membership@acca.org to set up your locations.

How do I add unlimited online training for additional locations?
Unlimited online training for a GOLD member’s additional locations can be added for $500 per additional location/year (not including the headquarters location). Given that ACCA’s individual courses cost as much as $495 each, this is still a great value!

What will change for existing contractor members who choose not to upgrade?
Existing members will enjoy the benefits of bronze membership at a reduced rate, starting at $630/year or $55/month in 2022 and rising gradually over the next three years. You can get a free month of membership, effectively delaying this increase, when you put a credit card on file for Effortless Renewal.
