ATLANTA — Through a memorandum of understanding, ASHRAE and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) are working together to promote better IAQ in the built environment, ASHRAE announced.

The agreement was signed during ASHRAE’s IAQ 2013 Conference held in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

“As professionals responsible for environmental control of buildings and transportation systems, our first priority must be making those environments safe, healthy, productive, and comfortable,” said ASHRAE president William Bahnfleth. “This partnership between ASHRAE, a worldwide organization with a scope to broadly promote the arts and science of HVACR for the benefit of the general public, and IAQA, an organization focused on services to ensure good IAQ, 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.”

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

“This agreement is a great step forward for IAQA and the IAQ field. ASHRAE and IAQA have agreed to work closely on issues that are of mutual interest,” said Donald M. Weekes, IAQA president. “I am personally looking forward to working with ASHRAE in the coming year.”
