Will work together in chapter collaboration, advocacy, technical activities and research

Through a memorandum of understanding, ASHRAE and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) are working together to promote better Indoor Air Quality in the built environment. Revealing this in a communiqué, ASHRAE said that the agreement was signed on October 15, during its IAQ 2013 Conference held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

The agreement reportedly commits ASHRAE and IAQA to working together in the areas of consistent leadership communication, chapter collaboration, advocacy, technical activities coordination and research.

Expressing his views on the MoU, ASHRAE President William “Bill” Bahnfleth, said: “As professionals responsible for environmental control of buildings and transportation systems, our first priority must be making those environments safe, healthy, productive and comfortable. This partnership between ASHRAE, a worldwide organisation with a scope to broadly promote the arts and science of HVAC&R and allied arts and science for the benefit of the general public, and IAQA, an organisation focused on services to ensure good Indoor Air Quality, will enhance the ability of both to achieve their shared goals. We welcome the opportunity to combine the resources of ASHRAE with the expertise of IAQA to strengthen our effectiveness in this critical area.”

Donald M Weekes, CIH, CSP, IAQA President, added: “This agreement is a great step forward for IAQA and the Indoor Air Quality field. ASHRAE and IAQA have agreed to work closely on issues that are of mutual interest. I am personally looking forward to working with ASHRAE in the coming year.”
