ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - The Air Movement and Control Association International (AMCA) board of directors has approved a new category called “Associates.” This category would be extended to manufacturers, businesses, and companies that are involved in supplying components, products, and services to the HVACR industry.

The organization said it is optimistic that this new category will strengthen the relationships of AMCA members with the industry, providing additional technical and practical expertise, and broadening the members’ knowledge base of the industry.

AMCA Executive Director Barbara Morrison said, “This new category will result in an exchange of marketing and technical information, strengthening the relationships of AMCA members within the HVACR industry. We look forward to including ‘AMCA Associate’ participation on AMCA Committees including attendance at our member conferences and seminars.”

The annual cost for an AMCA Associate is $2,500, and any firm or corporation not eligible for AMCA Membership, Joint Membership, or Provisional Membership is eligible to submit an application to become affiliated with the association as an AMCA International Associate.
