The Radiant Professionals Alliance is close to concluding negotiations with IAPMO for a home for RPA membership and services.
In a letter to its members, theRadiant Professionals Alliance(RPA), formerly Radiant Panel Association, announced
that it is close to concluding negotiations with the International Association
of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) for the continuation of a home for RPA membership and services.
RPA was founded in 1993 and is committed
toward the expansion and promotion of radiant technologies, as well as radiant
designers, installers, manufacturers and servicemen. But due to the rapidly
changing HVAC industry, RPA has decided to meet its members’ needs by teaming up
”As the sponsor of the American National
Standard-designated Uniform Plumbing Code (UPC) and Uniform Mechanical Code
(UMC), IAPMO members are dedicated to working in concert with government and
industry safe, sanitary plumbing and mechanical systems,” stated RPA PresidentDorothy Biggs. “In seeking to increase the scope and influence of the radiant
panel industry, RPA sees IAPMO as the perfect place to provide a future home
for RPA members.
“IAPMO’s desire to advance the mission
of the RPA and to provide an enhanced level of professional services and
support will be a win-win for the membership of both associations,” she said.
RPA expects the details of the
negotiation to be finalized by the end of the year.
