David Bixby has served as manager of codes for ACCA since June 2016. Prior to working for ACCA, Bixby had 35 years of experience in HVAC industry codes, standards and regulations, with work experience at the American Gas Association, the Gas Appliance Manufacturers Association (GAMA), the American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC), as well as four other HVAC-related manufacturers. He provides support to ACCA’s Codes Committee in reviewing proposed changes to codes under the auspices of the International Code Council (ICC) and the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO). In August 2020, Bixby assumed responsibility for processing ACCA standards, approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). This includes maintaining ACCA’s 12 existing ANSI standards, as well as supporting the processing of new standards according to ANSI procedures. He will also provide secretarial support for ACCA’s Standards Task Team (STT).
“We are very grateful for all of the hard work David has done as the manager of codes,” said Wes Davis, ACCA technical services director. “As he takes on more responsibilities, as the manager of codes and standards, we have full confidence in him to sustain our compliance to ANSI requirements.”
