Why Belong to an ASHRAE Chapter


ASHRAE's chapters are the grassroots of the organization. In ASHRAE, nourishment comes from local chapters, each Supported by volunteer effort.

Each of the Society's more than 180 chapters usually meets for a monthly dinner and technical session featuring a noted speaker. This activity brings the latest in technical information to the local level. Chapters also sponsor seminars and lecture series to provide members with more detailed technical information. Some chapters even conduct courses that are not available at local universities for their members and other interested professionals.

Public information programs are another important chapter activity. For example, it is not uncommon for ASHRAE members to hold seminars on energy conservation in the home, or to provide engineering career guidance to young people. In addition, many chapters sponsor scholarships to students attending college and help organize and support ASHRAE student branches.

Chapters are divided into geographic regions to effectively organize chapter efforts; provide volunteer training; and open a communications channel to the Society's Board of Directors. Each region holds an annual conference that includes a technical program and business session. Nominations for service on many Society-level committees are made at these meetings.
