RPA membership ratifies move to IAPMO

The Radiant Professionals Alliance (RPA) membership ratified a move to join the International Assn. of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO).

01/04/2012


The RPA (formerly known as the Radiant Panel Assn. Inc.) will officially be joining the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). The move, along with an official name change to the Radiant Professionals Alliance, was ratified by RPA membership by a strong majority of affirmative votes on Dec. 5, 2011.

RPA’s publications and reference materials will continue to be available. This includes training manuals, home study tools, DVD seminars, the webinar series, the RPA Standard Guidelines, and the certification program, including all written tests for the various levels from field technician to designer. Publications for members will continue without interruption. New products and projects are being planned for the near future.

In addition, anniversary dates of all RPA memberships will be recognizes as well as subsequent renewals. Members will continue to be entitled to benefits associated with the RPA and the structure with IAPMO.

RPA membership will also receive a draft-marketing program, designed to increase radiant/hydronic heating and cooling awareness. RPA membership input will be requested and a final draft compiled from comments received before the program is initiated.
