Program: ASHRAE GGAC - Understanding ASHRAE’s Governmental Advocacy
In an everchanging world of governmental legislation, what is ASHRAE’s interest in Governmental Advocacy? The real purpose is to establish ASHRAE as a leading source for expertise in the built environment and a resource for policy-makers in the development of legislation and regulations affecting the public, the HVAC&R community, and the engineering profession.
This is accomplished by building relationships between ASHRAE and all levels of government, facilitating the transfer of technical counsel and assisting on matters affecting the public, engineering profession and the ASHRAE professional community.
But where does the local ASHRAE Chapter fit into this effort? This presentation will demonstrate the importance of Chapter involvement and membership participation in governmental advocacy.
