The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) have recently signed a memorandum of understanding.

The partnership between ASHRAE and BOMA will promote mutual interests of engineering and building operations and management, according to ASHRAE.

The organizations will work together to achieve, among others, the following goals:

- Identify opportunities for shared operation services
- Identify opportunities to collaborate on product development, and to give presentations at each other’s conferences
- Where mutually beneficial, jointly promote educational programs to members and jointly identify, create and identify new products and services
- Encourage continuing dialogue between ASHRAE and BOMA at national, regional and local levels on issues of importance to engineers and building professionals
- Encourage collaborative and cooperative activities to promote continuing professional development

In addition, BOMA and ASHRAE commit to support each other and fully participate in standard development areas, initially centering around ASHRAE standards 62.1, 90.1, 180P and 189.1P working within the ANSI consensus standards development process.
