ASHRAE, IAQA Offer Dual Membership Program

ATLANTA – A new dual membership program is available to members of ASHRAE and the Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) as part of consolidation between the two groups finalized earlier this year.

ASHRAE and IAQA announced last year that they were joining forces to combine resources to improve indoor air quality in the built environment.
Under the dual membership program, ASHRAE Members and Associate Members can join IAQA as individual members for $131. Individual IAQA members can join ASHRAE for $151. Both are provided with the regular benefits of individual membership in the other association.

ASHRAE, through publishing, education, standards writing and research, offers building design and operation guidance. IAQA focuses on providing information on the quality of the indoor environment including updates on governmental and regulatory activity.

“A joint ASHRAE/IAQA membership will allow the IAQA member to access detailed ASHRAE research and combine this with practical application within the IAQA network,” ASHRAE President David Underwood said. “We are excited to offer this dual membership program and encourage all interested members to participate.”

“The joint IAQA/ASHRAE membership opens great possibilities for both associations to come together and make a real difference for both the public and the industry as a whole,” IAQA President Kent Rawhouser said.
