Meeting/Event Information

Illinois Chapter usually meets once each month, August through June, on Tuesdays. The Chapter’s annual golf outing and fund raiser always takes place in September. Generally 70 to 80 members gather at monthly meetings, which makes them an excellent networking opportunity for members interested in meeting and developing other contacts in the industry.

The State of Illinois requires professional engineers to complete 30 PDHs (Professional Development Hours) of training for license renewal. The Illinois Chapter ASHRAE offers educational programs with more than enough PDHs to help engineers satisfy this requirement.

Presentations from previous Chapter seminars and meetings may be downloaded after logging into the "Member Area." The Illinois Chapter of ASHRAE stores past presentations. You must be a member to access them from this website. If you are not yet a member, sign-up today or contact us for more information.

lllinois Chapter members and friends will get together again at the Rock Bottom Brewery to kick off 2017-18 and a whole new meeting season. Find out what's being planned, who's talking about it and ways you can get involved. Rock Bottom is on the southwest corner of Grand Ave. & State St. on Chicago’s north side. (Indoor parking garage is on northeast corner. Public transportation may be a better option, as we'll be right above the Grand & State CTA Red Line subway station.) Homemade Rock Bottom beer, wine, root beer and soda will be among many refreshments served at this fun and informal get-together. Enjoy a delicious buffet of treats and wash them down with some of RB's tasty homemade brews.

Chapter President Frank Moccio will introduce other officers and leaders who will talk about their plans and goals. Find out what education topics, tours and social activities the Illinois Chapter will offer in the coming months. The chapter's monthly meetings, spring conference and tours feature regular educational programs. These will broaden everyone's technical knowledge and also provide more than enough PDHs to help PE's satisfy their continuing education requirement.

The Kickoff Meeting is about having fun and networking with your professional peers. We are not only interested in seeing Illinois Chapter regulars at the meeting but also new faces. So bring a friend or someone in your office you think should know about ASHRAE. We hope you and your company will be represented on this evening. Bring a guest and get your reservation in soon. Join us on August 8th and get ready for 2017-18!

Corporate sponsors are sought for the Kickoff meeting. Sign up your company now to receive special recognition on August 8th. Contact for details or additional information.
