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.

Fall Tour: Allstate Arena Ice Rink & Wolves Hockey!


October 19, 2016
5:45 PM - 9:30 PM
Add to Calendar


Allstate Arena
6920 Mannheim Road
Rosemont, IL 60018


Tour begins at 6:00 pm sharp at VIP gate entrance on north side of stadium. Please be there a little earlier. (Look for “VIP Gate Enter Here” sign and ask for Eric Zavilla.)

Cooler than ice cubes or ice cold beer is how refrigerants make it possible to ice skate indoors or watch the action in comfort on almost 20,000 chairs circling the rink. Ever wonder how it actually works? What kind of chiller does it take, how much piping and what size pumps? How long does it take to get the ice game-ready? How do they balance it all out on game days?

The Illinois Chapter’s Fall Tour series will visit the Allstate Arena for an up-close look at the mechanical systems linked to this large indoor ice arena. Here’s your chance to get behind the walls and see the system at work. Oh, we almost forgot to ask: Do you like hockey? Because following the tour, we’ll enjoy a Chicago Wolves hockey game from rink-side seats when they take on the visiting Milwaukee Admirals (7 p.m. face off). The hockey ticket is included in the tour price.


Please plan to furnish your own transportation and parking at the Allstate Arena. Due to airport congestion, those driving to the event are encouraged to leave early and carpool if possible. Guests traveling from the Loop to Rosemont might also consider riding the CTA Blue Line train to Rosemont. Then call a cab, Uber or other rideshare service for the additional 4-mile trip to the stadium. Before and after certain events, an express bus operates between the Rosemont CTA station and Allstate Arena (for details).
