Merger Creates The Largest And Only Charity Dealing With Indoor Air Quality And Mold Related Issues

Washington, DC & Austin, TX -- The Texas Association for Indoor Air Quality (TAIAQ) announced today the merger of its membership into the worlds largest environmental charity focusing on environmental, health and safety issues. This merger will pave the way for the hundreds of professional members of TAIAQ to provide a new depth and breadth to the EEFs existing membership base of over 5,500.

Past President of TAIAQ and existing EEF member, Mr. Greg Becker, RIAQM of Becker Engineering, applauds the organizations decision to merge with the EEF as ?a major step forward in the servicing and recognition for our members?. Mr. Becker continued, ?This merger was a natural fit for both groups, it will benefit existing TAIAQ members and EEF members alike.".

The EEF is recognized globally as the leader in Indoor Air Quality and Mold related issues and now with the addition of the largest and most acclaimed membership in Texas IAQ, the combined strength and knowledge base is second to none.?

The merger of TAIAQ into the EEF is to be fully complete within a few short months. TAIAQ board of directors will be taking key strategic rolls in the EEF, including committee chair positions and selected appointments to various Federal and State agency committees the EEF enjoys.

Richard Bates, EEF President, echoed Mr. Beckers enthusiasm by adding ?The TAIAQ, not unlike many other organizations with memberships ranging from 200 to 2,000, possess a deep domain knowledge represented by its membership who are leaders in their respective industries. The EEF has become home to many such organizations over our 17 year history and we welcome, with great anticipation and open arms, the active participation of the TAIAQ members.?

Troy E. Johnson, EEF Executive Director and architect of the merger, said, ?I am honored the TAIAQ has decided to join us With a number of other, quality IAQ associations struggling to stay alive in today?s economy, the EEF makes the best opportunity for the members to grow and be part of a thriving, established and well connected organization. I can?t wait to tap into the knowledge base of the TAIAQ and share it through out our entire membership.?
