IAPMO Hires Lehtonen of GreenPlumbers USA
The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) welcomed Megan Lehtonen as the association’s new director of program development. Lehtonen recently served as president of GreenPlumbers USA.
Lehtonen will continue to work on GreenPlumbers India, an innovative national training and accreditation program designed to assist Indian plumbing contractors/engineers in understanding their role in environmental conservation and public health, which she helped established. She will also work closely with IAPMO Senior Director of Business and Product Development Allen Inlow in the creation and fostering of GreenPlumbers China.
These two international GreenPlumbers programs will train thousands of plumbing engineers/contractors to promote the benefits of water conservation and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, in hopes of seeking a cultural change in consumer and plumbing behavior through the use of energy efficiency and water saving technologies.
IAPMO and GreenPlumbers USA are also developing a Green Plumbing and Mechanical Inspector Certification Program derived from the Uniform Codes and the GreenPlumbers curriculum. GreenPlumbers has provided IAPMO with an exclusive Conservation/Foundation Partnership with regard to GreenPlumbers training and accreditation modules and programs.
