Become an ASHRAE Champion

This is a key period for ASHRAE, engaging with elected and appointed officials at all levels of government on a global basis. It is vital that a network of active engineer-advocates exists worldwide to impress upon decision-makers how their choices will impact society – and HVAC&R professionals specifically – and create a sustainable built environment.
