ASHRAE Society Announces 2023-24 President & Society Year Theme

Ginger Scoggins, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, took office as the 2023-24 ASHRAE President. During her inaugural address as president, Scoggins introduced ASHRAE’s new Society Year theme, “Challenge Accepted: Tackling the Climate Crisis.” She highlighted the climate change migration that has taken place globally in the past 50 years and spoke about ASHRAE’s commitment to providing resources and thought leadership in global building decarbonization.

“We have worked to integrate a carbon-reduction focus throughout our ASHRAE committees, councils, and leadership and provide our industry with a clear indication of our commitment to this issue,” said Scoggins. “We have several other initiatives underway, with a plan for their completion during this society year. ASHRAE has accepted the challenge of our time…and we need you to join us.” Scoggins’ presidential address manuscript and presentation can be found at
