This page is dedicated to some of the professional organizations that I am a member. They meet at various times throughout the year. A great way to be part of the community and contribute beyond just doing a job.
Energy Star is a Brand recognized across the country for Energy Efficiency. It is largely self regulating. It promotes the top 20% of products in the category for Energy Efficiency.
The Wichita Area Builders Association is a great organization for builders of all types. I have been a part of this group for 4 years and greatly enjoyed working with the Builders Care Committee last year building a house for Sgt. Matt Amos with the Homes for Our Troops Organization of Taunton, MA.
RESNET is The Residential Energy Network. Founded in the 1990’s by the Residential Mortgage Industry and the National Association of State Energy Offices, with the goal of standardizing a method to measure and compare energy use in homes all over the United States. This private non-profit group certifies Software to IRS Standards, Training Standards for HERS Raters and others involved in the process and enforces a QA process on all HERS Ratings issued. RESNET is a ANSI Standards Organization.
ASHRAE is the professional organization for those involved with Mechanical Systems across the country. The Wichita Chapter of this group helps professionals across the board improve their skills and knowledge.
BOMA Wichita is a group of Building Owners and Managers that provide continuing education and timely information for these professionals and their business partners. This organization also supports the Wichita Children’s Home at their annual Christmas event.
