HVACR Workforce Development Foundation To Address Industry Needs at the 2015 AHR Expo

HVACR Workforce Development Foundation

Representing a unified undertaking to address the workforce needs facing the HVACR industry in the near future, the HVACR Workforce Development Foundation is committed to: raise awareness of the HVACR industry and the importance it plays in daily life; create interest in the HVACR industry as an attractive and profitable career choice; and enhance the quality and quantity of available workforce for the HVACR industry.

“We are excited about partnering with AHR Expo to make thousands of HVACR professionals more aware of the many opportunities available in the HVACR industry,” said Kari M. Arfstrom, Executive Director. “AHR Expo allows us to reach all of our target audiences in one place – from the manufacturers and suppliers to the people that spec and install HVAC systems.”

The HVACR Workforce Development Foundation also assists students in finding the appropriate schools and in sourcing scholarships through its many sustaining members. The Foundation will host a booth on the Show floor to meet with anyone interested in learning more about the Foundation’s work and its mission.

“Ensuring that the HVACR industry has a skilled workforce is critically important to everyone involved with AHR Expo,” said Clay Stevens, President of International Exposition Company, which produces and manages the AHR Expo. “We always reach out to career and technical schools and colleges in the marketplaces where the Show is being held and invite the students and faculty to attend AHR Expo because they represent the future of the industry.”

Stevens added that together with Co-sponsors ASHRAE and AHRI, and Honorary Sponsor HRAI, nearly three-dozen industry associations now endorse the world’s leading HVACR exposition.
