ASHRAE, APPA promote sustainable education facilities
The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air Conditioning Engineers and the Association of Physical Plant Administrators, an association serving educational facilities professionals, have signed an agreement to provide mutual support in promoting sustainable higher education facilities.
The memorandum of understanding, signed July 10 by the two groups, announces ASHRAE’s and APPA’s intent to share resources jointly promoting educational programs, creating new products, and encouraging continuing professional development for their members. The associations also will explore cross-marketing each other’s products and services.
“The relationship between ASHRAE and APPA is crucial to furthering new advancements in HVAC&R technology,” said ASHRAE president Terry Townsend, P.E. “With this memorandum in place, ASHRAE and APPA members have the tools to provide ongoing technological solutions to educational facilities managers.”
