Subject:  Nominations for Standing Committees

Are you interested in serving on an ASHRAE standing committee?

Do you know someone else who may be interested in serving?

I am requesting your assistance in identifying qualified members to serve on our Society’s standing committees for the 2015-2016 year.  One-third of the members of most committees rotate off each year; additionally, a new chair and vice chair must be appointed.

I encourage you to review those currently serving on Society committees as listed on the web site (https://ashrae.org/CurrentMembers) and submit any recommendations you may have.  Click on the following link to submit your recommendations online:


You are also welcome to send your recommendations to Claire Neme at cneme@ashrae.org.

If you would like to be considered for appointment to a committee or if you are rotating off a committee and would like another assignment, please feel free to nominate yourself.  Except in special circumstances, it is preferable for a member to serve on only one Society standing committee at a time.

When submitting your recommendations, please include why you recommend an individual for service on a particular committee. Recommendations without that backup don’t provide sufficient information to match a candidate with an appropriate committee.

Deadline for Recommendations – February 12, 2015

For your reference, below is a list of committees to which I will be appointing members.  All information you submit will remain confidential.  Thank you.
