It’s a new day at the RPA! As a national chapter of IAPMO the new RPA will be able to create a much stronger organization with the reach, connections, professional staff, and the ability to take certification, installation standards, industry expansion through marketing, code acceptance and education to a level which the members of RPA have always aspired.
It’s an exciting time as we chart the course for the future of our industry. We are on the cusp of major changes which will see a confluence of new technologies, renewable heating and cooling sources, and industry growth driven by an ever increasing need to create integrated HVAC systems which are greener, healthier and more comfortable – properly installed by a RPA-certified contractor.
I encourage you to become engaged with a worldwide network of professional and dedicated manufacturers, designers, suppliers, distributors and contractors who desire to advance the understanding and acceptance of all types of radiant heating & cooling.
I look forward to moving the RPA forward with the help of a fabulously talented board of directors and supported by the new board structure whereby the board members at-large are the chairmen of the seven committees. This design assures that the goals and objectives of the complete organization will be accomplished and allow fresh ideas to flow through the RPA.
