Membership Program for Developing Countries

To encourage the development and participation in the HVAC&R industry within the Asia-Pacific region, AIRAH will launch a program that provides reduced membership options for practitioners who reside in countries categorised as “Low Income” and “Lower Middle Income” developing economies by the World Bank List of Economies statistics.

By offering more affordable membership options in “Low Income” and “Lower Middle Income” developing economies, AIRAH is helping to develop and improve the practices in the science and application of the HVAC&R industry via providing knowledge and resources for these countries to improve their overall competency.

AIARH encourages our qualifying members to take advantage of this program to help build those resources.
