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.

Rock Bottom Brewery
One W. Grand Ave.
Chicago, IL 60654-4806


lllinois Chapter members and friends will get together soon at the Rock Bottom Brewery to kick off 2016-17. It 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.

President Brian Medina will be joined by other officers and leaders who will describe their plans, goals and ways everyone can benefit from and get involved in ASHRAE. Learn what education topics, tours and social activities the Illinois Chapter will offer in the months ahead. The chapter offers many educational programs with more than enough PDHs to help professional engineers satisfy their continuing education requirement. This year's programs will combine topics you've told us you want along with some winning ideas other chapter's have discovered. We've also added some brand new ones we think will be fun. At the meeting we'll recognize several 2015-16 ASHRAE Research contributors.

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 9th and get in the spirit for 2016-17.
