The ASHRAE Community Sustainability Project program is meant to encourage members and their chapters to examine ways to get more involved in their local communities. The program is designed to share knowledge of members to improve the world around them. The SAC chapter traditionally offers a donation to a deserving non-profit organization; such as the Girls and Boys Club, and Ronald MacDonald House. My role this year is to find an equally deserving non-profit organization.
In addition this year AHSRAE has started ASHRAE Global Giveback; this is for the local chapters to have community-oriented volunteer event the week of April 22-28, 2018. This can be as simple as an organized park clean-up, or volunteering at a soup kitchen. Stay tuned for an update on this event!
