Association of Air Conditioning Professionals
We have three categories of membership. They are:
Contractor membership is open to any company engaged principally in the heating, ventilation, and/or air conditioning business as a contractor, who becomes a contractor member of the national association, and who is not a subsidiary, affiliate, division, or related entity of a public utility.
Associate membership is open to companies engaged in (a) manufacturing, (b) wholesaling, jobbing, and selling allied products or equipment principally to contractors and/or (c) supplying fuels, energies, or other services beneficial to the industry. Associate membership is not open to retailers or other suppliers who sell principally to the general public. Associate members have no voting rights and cannot hold an office. Subsidiaries, affiliates, related entities, and divisions of associate members are not eligible for membership in the association.
Vocational membership shall be available to teachers, students, heating
inspectors, and other such individuals having interest in the
environmental systems industry. Vocational members shall not have the
right to vote and hold office.
NOTE: It is estimated that 20% of the membership dues is non-deductible due to lobbying efforts.
