IAQA Announces New Mission Statement, Pillars of Engagement

ROCKVILLE, Md. - Sept. 4, 2013 - PRLog -- The Indoor Air Quality Association (IAQA) announced today the adoption of a new Mission Statement and Pillars of Engagement for the organization.  According to IAQA officials, they will serve as guiding principles for the association’s strategic planning and overall operations.

The new Mission Statement is “IAQA is dedicated to bringing practitioners together to prevent and solve indoor environmental problems for the benefit of customers and the public.” The Pillars of Engagement include Member Engagement, Communication and Connection, Education, Operational Excellence, and Collaboration.  “These are areas that have been a focus of IAQA for several years.  Codifying them as Pillars that will guide the organization and its members provide benchmarks on how we can improve as an organization, how we can better serve our members, and how we can best engage both the community of practitioners and the customers they serve,” said Donald M. Weekes, IAQA President.

“IAQA’s new mission statement reflects both changes that have occurred organically within IAQA as it has evolved over the past 17 years, as well as a direction that reflects the will of the membership,” said Glenn Fellman, IAQA executive Director.  He added, “Our new Mission Statement does not stray very far from the spirit our past one, but the new Pillars of Engagement give precise meaning to how that mission will be fulfilled.”

“The revision to our Mission Statement and creation of corresponding Pillars of Engagement are the culmination of nearly a year’s work by dedicated association leaders,” said Michael Pinto.  He chaired a committee of IAQA past presidents and board members, as well as currently serving board volunteers and chapter directors, who developed the new Mission Statement and Pillars of Engagement. “It is the first change to the organization’s Mission Statement since IAQA was founded in 1998 as a non-profit organization,” Pinto remarked.

“I am looking forward to the upcoming annual meeting, where members will hear about many current and new programs demonstrating the association’s commitment to fulfilling the Pillars of Engagement and Mission,” added Weekes.  The IAQA 17th Annual Meeting & Indoor Environment & Energy Expo takes place March 17-19, 2014 in Nashville, TN.

In conjunction with the release of the Mission Statement and Pillars, IAQA has launched several new programs bolstering its activity, including a membership drive.  For more information, visit www.iaqa.org.
