Oct. 13, 2006: ASHRAE, CAMEE to Pursue Interests in Advocacy, Education

October 13, 2006
ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Council of American Mechanical and Electrical Engineers (CAMEE) have signed a memorandum of understanding to pursue their common interest in advocacy and education.

The agreement formalizes a working relationship between ASHRAE, which is interested in the technical aspects of the building environment, and CAMEE, which is focused on the business aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering. CAMEE is a coalition of the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC).

"The agreement serves to bridge the gap between ASHRAE and CAMEE and their common interests in government advocacy on behalf of our members and education for the operation of engineering businesses," said Terry Townsend, P.E., ASHRAE president. "ASHRAE and CAMEE can now market our activities to the mutual benefit of our collective memberships."

"We look forward to our cooperation with ASHRAE and the benefits that will accrue to both organizations," said David Raymond, president of ACEC.
