Welcome all to a new calendar year of ASHRAE!  It will be a unique year for sure, but also an interesting one for our industry as well. 

COVID-19 is impacting all of our lives in many ways, including influencing how we are designing new HVAC systems and/or retro-fitting solutions into existing systems.  There is a lot of data to process related to the contagion and a lot of products coming to market that say they can combat infectious diseases.  With this way of thinking being new to many of us, it is important that we get reliable research performed to vet the good from the poor, and get informed guidance from industry leaders in developing standards, such as ASHRAE.

Contributing to ASHRAE’s Research Promotion (RP) campaign is a great way to ensure that funding continues for this important research.  Unfortunately, COVID-19 has disrupted a few of our normal RP fund raising techniques, such as golf tee flags and vendor tables at meetings.  The RP committee is committed to discovering new approaches and will implement new strategies in the future.  However, donating doesn’t need to occur at an event.  It is as simple as going to ASHRAE.ORG/CONTRIBUTE.

The Northeast Chapter has an RP fund raising goal of $11,500 for this year and an immediate goal of hitting 30% ($3,450) by December 1st. 

Our Chapter is well on its way to achieving Full Circle Plus this year!  Chapter Officers, Board of Governors members, Committee Chairs, along with other Chapter members have already contributed to Research Promotion in solidarity.

Please note that donations to RP do not go solely into research.  RP funding also goes toward other great elements of ASHRAE such as developing learning and educational programs, scholarships, and the support of Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA).

Thank you for your continued support!

Hello All,

Greetings from your 2018-2019 Research Promotion Chair!

So far we have kicked the new ASHRAE calendar year off to a great start! This year’s 2018-2019 Northeast Chapter goal for Research Promotion is $11,500 with a Scholarship Goal of $150. By helping our chapter reach this goal, you are helping the ASHRAE community as a whole. Research is the backbone of ASHRAE but the RP Campaign was expanded 10 years ago to also include support of Education, Endowed Research through the ASHRAE Foundation, YEA programs, ASHRAE Scholarships, etc.
