Air-Conditioning, Heating Associations Announce Merger
January 10, 2008

The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) and the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA) announced recently that their members have voted to approve the merger of the two trade associations to represent the interests of cooling, heating and commercial refrigeration equipment manufacturers. The merger was approved by the members of GAMA and ARI on Dec. 10 and Dec. 17, respectively.

The merged association became the Air-Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) on Jan. 1, 2008. It is headquartered in Arlington, Va.

AHRI has established an Integration Committee to work out the details of the structure and the governance of the new association. Decisions have already been made to maintain a product section structure that equally represents all AHRI members’ interests and to merge the standing committees of the two associations.
