Research Promotion


The Research Promotion Committee manages and supports both the Society-level fundraising and Chapter-level fundraising of the RP Campaign.  Traditionally supporting just research, the RP Campaign was expanded 10 years ago to include support of Education & ALI, Endowed Research through ASHRAE Foundation, YEA programs, ASHRAE Scholarships, and the General/Unrestricted fund.  Research, the backbone of ASHRAE, remains the primary fund of the program with over $1.9 million raised for this program annually.

Locally our chapter has been a big contributor to Research Promotion.  We raise funds through our annual golf tournament, annual skeet shoot, and company and individual donations.  Our chapter has traditionally won the Full Circle award which is given to chapters where each officer personally gives at least one hundred dollars towards RP.  If you or your company would like to help sponsor an event or give to RP, please contact our RP chair.
