ASHRAE and the Council of American Mechanical and Electrical Engineers will work together to educate members on the building environment.

The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers will share its knowledge on the technical aspects of the building environment, while the council, called CAMEE, will focus on the business aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering. The CAMEE is a coalition of the American Council of Engineering Companies.

“The agreement serves to bridge the gap between ASHRAE and CAMEE and their common interests in government advocacy on behalf of our members and education for the operation of engineering businesses,” said Terry Townsend, ASHRAE president. “ASHRAE and CAMEE can now market our activities to the mutual benefit of our collective memberships.”

“We look forward to our cooperation with ASHRAE and the benefits that will accrue to both organizations,” said David Raymond, president of the engineering council.
