Background:

The Institute is governed by a Board of Directors, elected from member companies under a formula that ensures representation of both small and large companies. The President of the Institute also serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Many of the Compressed Air and Gas Institute's activities are carried out in its separate sections, which are categorized by product scope. Individual member companies may affiliate with one or more of these sections, depending upon their product lines.

Current sections are Air Drying and Filtration, Blower, Centrifugal Compressor, Pneumatic Tool, Rotary Positive Compressor and the Reciprocating Compressor Section.

In addition, important work of the Institute is carried out by committees including the Educational and Promotional/Marketing Committee, Standards Committee and Energy Efficiency Committee.

The scope and responsibilities of these sections and committees are described in the committees and sections portion of this web site.
