2012 Region XI CRC was held in Winnipeg from held May 10 -13. Overall the experience was a success. In addition to the regular business meetings I was able to attend Regional Training on Student Activities, YEA, and CTTC. There was quite a bit of new information that was passed down and I will do my best to use this in bringing you the members a better product in 2013. In case you were wondering what the benefits of your chapter sending multiple officers to the Regional Conference, much of it comes in this training and the idea sharing that happens throughout the whole weekend.
Student Activities at CRC 2012 – our chapter currently has a strong presence in the local post secondary schools, this will continue into next year. ASHRAE has developed an online database for activities to help out with presentations for our younger audience. That’s right K-12. There is a big push currently to get kids interested in science and peak there interest.
