It's TIME to celebrate 50 years of ARI excellence! During the 2003 ARI Annual Meeting in Palm Beach, FL, U.S., a time capsule, filled with memorabilia about the HVAC/R industry, was sealed to commemorate 50 years of industry excellence for ARI and its members.

ARI held a contest in 2002 with students from 1,300 secondary and post-secondary HVAC/R training programs throughout the U.S. to determine which program could design the most innovative time capsule. The students were asked to design the capsule using materials that are commonly used in the HVAC/R industry - sheet metal, stainless steel and copper, copper tubing/iron pipe, gutted compressor, and PVC.

The HVACR program at Mead County ATC in Brandenburg, KY, U.S. won the contest.

"The time capsule from the students at Meade County ATC was chosen out of a number of other entries because their inventive design outshined all the others," said Ed Dooley, ARI's vice president of Communications and Education. "They won the chance to construct the capsule and their school received a $1,000 check for their efforts."

The capsule was unveiled at ARI's 2002 Annual Meeting and was sealed this year during ARI's 50th anniversary celebration. Included in the capsule are industry brochures, videos, ARI standards, CDs, ARI directories, photos, and examples of how HVAC/R industry equipment improves the quality of life.

The time capsule will be displayed in the lobby at ARI headquarters in Arlington, VA, U.S.
