The Case for a Canadian Trade Association for Acoustic Consulting Companies
The United States, the United Kingdom and Australia, each have national trade associations for acoustic consulting firms. These associations include the US National Council of Acoustic Consultants (NCAC), the UK Association of Noise Consultants (ANC) and the Association of Australian Acoustical Consultants (AAAC). Acoustic consulting firms, BAP Acoustics and RWDI AIR, have recognized the growing need for a similar trade association in Canada. This paper will introduce the proposed creation of the Acoustic Consultants Association of Canada (ACAC) and will discuss the many benefits it will offer to member firms, the industry, and the general public.
