The Air Conditioning & Mechanical Contractors' Association (AMCA) has a mature network of committees made up of members and other industry experts.

These committees create an active, inclusive and collaborative community that provide industry expertise to ensure AMCA policy positions are well considered, supported by evidence where possible, and provide credibility when advocating on behalf of industry to government and other stakeholders.

Members interested in participating on any of these committees are encouraged to contact your state AMCA Office.

Current Committees

Workplace Health and Safety

The health and safety of employees is the number one priority of the AMCA and our members. Our Workplace Health and Safety Committee helps to identify emerging health and safety risks, provides industry expertise to support the AMCA policy and advocacy activities on safety issues, and helps to identify the information and training needs of members.

Training and Workforce Development

AMCA members employ a range of professional and technical skills, including mechanical engineering, drafting, mechanical plumbing, sheet metal fabrication, refrigeration, electrical and commissioning.  The AMCA Training and Workforce Development Committee aims to identify the current and future training needs of members, and provides valuable input into course design and delivery methods.

Service Committee

The Service Committee provides both technical and commercial expertise on matters relating to the service and maintenance of commercial HVAC systems. The Service Committee also helps to identify training needs and provides valuable input into the AMCA's service offerings for members primarily focused on the maintenance and repair of HVAC systems. 

Human Resources and Workplace Relations

As people-orientated organisations, AMCA members must ensure they are aware and comply with a workplace relations system that can, at times, feel overwhelming.  The AMCA Workplace Relations Committee not only provides  industry input into the AMCA's policy and advocacy work, but also helps to identify information, training and other services the AMCA can provide to give members clarity and minimise risk of non-compliance.

Technical Committee

The design and installation of HVAC systems is subject to a high degree of regulation, including a range of quality standards that govern methods of installation, testing techniques and energy efficiency requirements, as well as the performance and safety attributes of equipment and systems. Our Technical Committee provides engineering expertise to help inform the AMCA's policy and advocacy work across these areas, and provides insight into training and education needs. The Committee also has input into the development of advisory notes and regulatory updates distributed to members to keep them abreast of changes in the technical and regulatory environment.

Building Information Modelling (BIM-MEPAUS)

Having recognised the trend towards digitally enabled construction (Building Information Modelling), the AMCA started the BIM-MEPAUS initiative in 2010 to drive industry standards. The BIM-MEPAUS initiative is overseen by a Project Governance Board.  This Board aims to expedite the adoption of building information modelling through the development of best practice standards and guidelines.
