The 2013/2014 is proving to be a tough year for ASHRAE Research. Regional contributions are down from the February Goal, and almost all chapters are behind on their targets. If there is one bright light, it is ASHRAE Northern Alberta Chapter, as we are one of the few chapters that are UP over last year and EXCEEDING TARGETS.
The deadline for the ASHRAE Technology Awards Program is April 1, 2014, less than a month away, and we're looking for your submissions.

A Regional program is proposed to allow for the development of future Regional leaders through their shadowing of current DRCs and support from the Region. LeadDRS would be a program that is run, funded, and administered by each Region in order to develop incoming or new Regional leadership. As a participant in this program, the DRC would select a participant from the Region to shadow the DRC at a Society Winter or Annual conference. The participant’s travel expense would be covered by the Region as an investment in the development of their future leadership. While not specifically required, it is the intention of this program to prepare new YEA members their upcoming duties and expectations as a Regional leader through direct interaction with the DRC.
