Benefits of Attending ASHRAE Student Activities Training

Every year, the SA Chairs from ASHRAE Chapters around the world gather to discuss how best to connect K-12 and college students to the HVAC&R industry. Let these SA Chairs tell you why it's important to attend Chapter Chair training.

Below is all of the information you need to prepare for this year’s CT including: registration, hotel, and travel. Please direct any questions to Katie Thomson kthomson@ashare.org or (678) 539-1212.

Sunday, June 23, 2019 8:00am to 4:00pm
The Westin Kansas City at Crown Center
1 East Pershing Road

Why attend:

  • Learn how to excel at the role of Student Activities (SA) chair, and help your chapter grow their student membership and student activities
  • Develop your SA network by meeting your Regional Vice Chair, other members from your region and other participants who have been successful in their role as SA Chair
  • Learn how to apply for scholarships, student grants, and participate in the design competition
  • Understand how to assist in starting a new ASHRAE Student Branch

Perhaps most important, you will leave with new friends and contacts who you can reach out to throughout the year for help, advice, or inspiration.

Costs Associated with Attending:

  • There is no fee to register for Centralized Training itself. Training will include lunch the day of training as well as snacks and drinks during the day.
  • Student Activities Chapter Chairs are reimbursed for Centralized Training or attending the Student Activities CRC workshop but are not reimbursed for attendance to both.
  • ASHRAE covers your flight or mileage, whichever is more affordable, based on the ASHRAE Transportation Policy.
  • Your hotel, any additional ground transportation expenses (e.g. taxi, shuttle, etc.) and food cannot be covered by ASHRAE. We recommend SA Chairs dialog directly with their Chapter President on what the chapter can cover.
