Best Way to Get Involved?

Join a Chapter Committee!

The ASHRAE Hamilton Chapter has several committees that focus on different areas of interest. Committees typically consist of a Chair position which leads the committee in achieving goals, often involving organizing events and activities that promote the HVAC and building professions.

Every member is highly encouraged to sign up for at least one chapter committee based on their area of interest. Not only is signing up for a committee a great way to keep engaged in the chapter, it will reward you by keeping you up to date with the latest ASHRAE happenings and enhance your professional growth as you serve your community and the local industry.

ASHRAE Society sponsors training for committee leadership positions. Apply to one of the available volunteer positions or sign up as a general committee member.
