IAQA joins forces with ASHRAE

6070060_s-pageUSA: The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) has joined forces with ASHRAE.

Under the consolidation, IAQA will become a part of the ASHRAE organisation but operate independently with its own brand and board of directors.

“We are excited about the opportunities presented by this consolidation,” ASHRAE president Tom Phoenix said. “It opens the door to alignment of ASHRAE and IAQA programmes to create high-impact resources for building professionals around the globe.”

“This is an historic event for both associations and has great promise for growth and development for both organisations,” IAQA president Kent Rawhouser added. “The opportunities and possibilities for members are only limited by our own imaginations.  IAQA and ASHRAE are committed to growing and developing the IAQA brand. The consolidation will open new avenues for programmes and benefits for our members.”

ASHRAE first announced it had agreed in principle to join forces with the IAQA in July. Since August, the two groups have been undergoing a period of due diligence. That diligence was completed earlier in January.

The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to bringing practitioners together to prevent and solve indoor environmental problems for the benefit of customers and the public. IAQA was established in 1995 and is the nation’s largest indoor air quality trade association with over 2,600 members and more than 20 local chapters across the United States and Canada.
