How can your ASHRAE Chapter become more involved in your community? Participate in the ASHRAE Global Giveback!

All ASHRAE Chapters are encouraged to have community-oriented volunteer events the week of April 21–28, 2019 that generate excitement at the local level, resulting in increased visibility of the Chapter with members, potential members and the general public. The program is designed to share the knowledge of members to improve the world around them.

Examples of sustainability activities:

  • ASHRAE Community Sustainability projects
  • Weatherizing homes or buildings for people in need or a charitable organization
  • Improving energy efficiency or water use efficiency for people in need or a charitable organization
  • Partnering with an established organization that builds, renovates, or improves the energy efficiency of homes or facilities

Earn PAOE Points for Your Chapter’s Global Giveback!
The 2018–19 PAOE program offers 500 points for chapter sponsored sustainability project/event held with a non-profit organization.  In addition, 100 points are offered for chapter sponsored community sustainability project publicity (outside of normal chapter promotion and including  print, audio, electronic media at local, state, provincial, national or industry level) promoting the work of ASHRAE and/or the chapter. Points may be awarded at the DRC’s discretion.

Chapter Opportunity Funds may be used at the DRC’s discretion.
