He will represent the ICC on committees for the Air Conditioning Contractors of America, the American Society of Heating Refrigeration Air Conditioning Engineers and the California Energy Commission. He also will maintain his long-time relationship with the Institute of Heating and Air Conditioning Industries and other industry groups.
