ARLINGTON, Va. - Edward W. Dooley has retired as vice president of Communications and Education at the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) following 12 years with the trade association.

In his role as spokesperson for ARI, Dooley was frequently quoted in trade journals and the consumer media. He authored a number of articles on the HVACR industry and published annual reports on the phaseout of chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) refrigerant chillers used for comfort cooling in buildings.

Dooley served as secretary of the ARI board of directors and was a founding member of the Air Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration and Plumbing Career Education Coalition, which recruits individuals to careers in the HVACR industry. He was a board member of the Clifford H. "Ted" Rees Jr. Scholarship Foundation and the Partnership for Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigeration Accreditation (PAHRA).

"Ed Dooley made many lasting contributions to improve our industry," said William G. Sutton, president of ARI. "He and his wife Connie made many friends during the past dozen years and they will be missed. But at the same time we are happy that they will now have the time to enjoy their passion for sailing."

Dooley joined ARI in 1992. Previously, he worked as partner in a business strategy consulting firm and as vice president of Public Affairs at the National Cable Telecommunications Association. He came to Washington, D.C., as a wire service reporter on Capitol Hill and became special assistant to a U.S. senator and a U.S. representative before working in the Executive Office of the President and at the Federal Communications Commission.
