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.

Kaiser Tiger Bar & Grill
1415 W. Randolph St.
Chicago, IL 60601

The City of Chicago Code is one of the toughest codes in the country and can sometimes be difficult to understand and apply to keep yourself out of trouble. That fact along with the updates we have had over the past year can make it even more difficult. Our presenter for this meeting is a guru in this arena and will help give an overview of some of the more common pitfalls and topics of the Chicago code. He will explore the recent updates to topics like energy recovery, the use of toilet exhaust, and updates to the electrical code as well. Please join us for a very informational night on a topic that everyone can relate to!

Our presenters are Darren B. Meyers, P.E., CEM, GBE, REP, BPI-BA/EP. Darren is President of IECC_LLC, an energy codes and compliance services group, with engineers located in Champaign, Chicago and Tinley Park. IECC_LLC provides education, code consulting, plan review, HVAC system design, whole-building energy analysis and field assessment services. Darren is an Architectural Engineer with over 25 years of industry experience in energy-systems design and applications in the commercial and residential sectors, including 17-years as Technical Director for Energy Programs with the International Code Council.

Joining Darren at the podium will be Grant Ullrich, Deputy Commissioner, City of Chicago Department of Buildings. A graduate of the University of Illinois College of Law, he joined the City as a Law Clerk and moved up to Assistant Corporation Counsel before his current office.
