To: Associates and Affiliates of ASHRAE
Did you know that many of you can have your member grade increased from Affiliate or Associate to Member?
And did you know that the Member grade has the same dues as Associate?
This year our Inland Empire ASHRAE has the goal of upgrading as many as possible to the grade of “Member”
What is the requirement?
The equivalent of 12 Society-approved years of experience composed of an approved combination of:
- Completed education beyond high school;
- Work experience (including research, teaching, design, contracting, engineering sales, or engineering management); and
- Professional engineering or related registration or license issued by a legally authorized body.
It is really that easy! Many of you who did not qualify for “Member” grade when originally signing up certainly qualify today!
If you are an ASHRAE Associate or Affilliate and would like to be upgraded to “Member”, please contact Matt Landoe at 509-981-0886 and we will put the wheels in motion!
Please remember to update your contact information with the Inland Empire Chapter of ASHRAE!!! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to update this information.
Dear ASHRAE Chapter Presidents, Webmasters and Newsletter Editors:
I’m writing you to ask for your help in promoting the 2014 ASHRAE Winter Conference and the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo. Each year, the ASHRAE Conference gives you a ring-side seat to the latest technological developments, educational offerings and networking opportunities. ASHRAE is excited about returning to New York where we saw a successful Conference and Expo in 2008.
The ASHRAE Conference, which takes place Jan. 18–22 at the New York Hilton, allows you to network with your fellow ASHRAE members from around the world and shape the future of the built environment industry. The Technical Program has a building-oriented theme and seeks papers on building information systems; environmental health; international design; HVAC&R applications and systems; and, featured for this Conference, tall building performance. Nearly the entire technical program is approved for NY PDHs, AIA LUs and LEED® AP credits. Also offered are ASHRAE Learning Institute courses, social events and the opportunity to take part in more than 600 committee meetings.
Of course, you don’t want to miss the ASHRAE co-sponsored AHR Expo, which allows you to see, touch and compare the newest products representing the most innovative technology in the HVAC&R marketplace. This year, the show takes place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 21–23 at Javits Convention Center, a change from its traditional Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. The Expo will feature nearly 2,000 leading manufacturers displaying thousands of products. Also be sure to check out AHR Expo’s comprehensive program of over 100 educational sessions, workshops and new product presentations offered at the Show.
At www.ashrae.org/newyorkmarketing, you can find banners and ads for your chapter websites and newsletters to use in promoting the Conference and the Show. To encourage attendance at the Conference, first-time conference attendees receive a discounted $515.
How do you know if your high performance, low-energy building is actually healthful to your building occupants? To find the answer, we’d like to personally invite you to join us and your fellow Region XI members at ASHRAE IAQ 2013. As a member of Region XI, you have a unique opportunity to attend the conference in your own backyard. Join us in Vancouver, B.C., Canada, Oct. 15–18.
The conference allows you to meet with experts from your region as well as from around the world to review the state of knowledge on the balance between environmental health and energy efficiency in the pursuit of low energy buildings. Most important, the ASHRAE IAQ 2013 conference helps define future design, education, policy and research directions to re-emphasize the importance of environmental health in buildings.
Some 80 presentations of conference papers and extended abstracts are being presented on moisture and health; indoor environmental quality factor interactions; residential buildings; active and passive approaches; design and operation; commercial and institutional buildings; and air cleaning and filtration, to name just a few topics.
Additionally featured are internationally acclaimed keynote speakers, including ASHRAE President William Bahnfleth, Ph.D., P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, ASME Fellow; Richard Corsi, Ph.D., P.E., University of Texas, Austin; Mark J. Mendell, Ph.D., Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and California Department of Public Health; and ISIAQ President Pawel Wargocki, Ph.D.
The state of knowledge will be summarized in written “topic overviews” prepared by the steering committee. The topic overviews and the papers presented at the conference—“ASHRAE IAQ 2013 Conference Collection: Environmental Health in Low Energy Buildings”—will be available to attendees online following the conference; pricing for non-attendees is $39 members and $45 nonmembers.
You can register and find complete conference information at www.ASHRAE.org/IAQ2013. Advance registration is open through Sept. 30, 2013. The conference is co-sponsored with the International Society of Indoor Air Quality and Climate (ISIAQ).
This is the 17th in the ASHRAE IAQ conference series, and if you haven’t attended before we sincerely hope that you will take advantage of the proximity of this year’s conference to network, learn and grow with other members and professionals in the field. We hope to see you there.
Hal Levin and Steve Emmerich, co-chairs ASHRAE IAQ 2013.
