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.

The fall’s early taste of snow & ice, bringing with them exceptional cold, warn us that winter is not far off. Ironically, it’s winter’s return that also brings us one of the year’s warmest traditions — the holiday season! The Illinois ASHRAE invites everyone to their annual Holiday Party on December 10.

Come indoors and let the Willis Tower’s elevators lift you and your holiday spirit skyward to the Metropolitan Club high atop Chicago’s tallest building. Enjoy mouthwatering treats and unlimited beverages while you celebrate the season with friends, new and old. The atmosphere inside — like the view of the city outside — will be fantastic! Live holiday music and festive decorations will brighten the mood inside the club's Oak Room.

The annual Holiday Party is where we'll also recognize 2019’s Excellence in Engineering Technology Award winners. A presentation ceremony will be included to recognize their achievements. So join everyone for this very special reception planned for 4 – 8 p.m. Don't miss out! Mark your calendar and sign up soon. Come with a group or by yourself. We have a great afternoon and evening in store for everyone — and hope to see you there. (If we can assist you with a group reservation, please 708-636-5819 or email [email protected]).
