Institute History

In addition, the Institute maintains professional relationships with such organizations as the Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA), the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), BOCA International, and the Refrigeration Service Engineers Society (RSES).
