Came for a local chapter technical presentation, stayed for monthly publications, resource library, Handbooks, leadership opportunities, professional development and networking.


I joined ASHRAE as a Student Member, and continued my membership after graduation, so I could network and learn more about the Buildings Systems Industry. Over my 36 years of continuous learning, my membership has transitioned into collaboration, giving-back and volunteerism.


ASHRAE provides its volunteers with phenomenal networking opportunities through Chapter meetings, committee involvement & Regional & Society conferences. Participation at ASHRAE helps in developing leadership skills as well as upgrading industry knowledge.


I joined as a student member for a scholarship and have stayed for the friendships, and technical knowledge that have made me the engineer I am today, and continues to help me grow.


The main reason I joined is to learn better HVAC and the reason I stayed is that I learned so much more than I expected. 3 positives for me as an ASHRAE Member are continued development as an Engineer, involvement in the making of Standards and Guidelines, and social networking with all parties involved in my segment of work.
