The E.K. Campbell Award

The E.K. Campbell Award
This annual award is given to a current ASHRAE member in good standing who is associated with an institution of learning and teaches courses or conducts research in heating, ventilating, air-conditioning or refrigeration at the graduate and/or undergraduate level in an engineering or engineering technology program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) or accredited engineering program in other countries that are signatories to the Washington Accord, The Sydney Accord and the Dublin Accord international agreements among bodies responsible for accrediting engineering programs.

The award, funded by contributions from individual members of the Life Members Club (LMC),  consists of a plaque and an honorarium for $10,000.  The plaque is presented during the Plenary Session of the ASHRAE Winter Conference and the honorarium is presented at the LMC Luncheon on the following Tuesday when the recipient is requested to make a presentation.  Attendance at both events is mandatory.
