This workshop session will consist of a series of presentations by members of the Board for the Indoor Environmental Quality – Global Alliance (IEQ-GA). The AIVC is one of the founding members of the IEG-GA, and its representatives have participated in the formation of the Global Alliance as well as active members in planning for the next stage of its development. The Alliance is expected to be an independent international NGO whose members are public or non-profit entities that are involved with advancing knowledge on common indoor environmental quality issues. In its formative phases, the Alliance was being hosted by ASHRAE. The Global Alliance is now considering incorporation to further advance its role as the clearing house for IEQ research and implementation. The workshop will focus on the next steps to be taken to become an international NGO for indoor environmental quality.
