ASHRAE, CIBSE Sign Agreement
“Making it easier for ASHRAE and CIBSE members to join our respective organizations furthers the exchange of ideas,” said Terry Townsend, ASHRAE president.
“When our members join other groups, particularly outside North America, they are exposed to new technologies since HVACR technology differs due to geographic, environmental, cultural, and economic requirements. This exposure makes for more well-rounded engineers and more well-rounded engineering organizations.”
According to John Armstrong, the new president of CIBSE, “This is another step in strengthening the links between our two organizations and an opportunity for our respective members to access wider knowledge, information, and guidance, which is now essential if we are to design, construct, and operate more sustainable buildings in the future.”
