A Word from your Member Promotion Chair:

Growth is good. As Detroit continues its revival, our ASHRAE chapter is committed to growing and expanding alongside it. And we believe the addition of fresh perspectives, new ideas, and diverse experiences, will help take our organization to the next level. To that end, we would like to encourage all members to bring potential member(s) as a guest or guest(s) to our first meeting of the year.  Those who bring one or more eligible potential members to the September 2017 meeting will receive one additional drink ticket on meeting night.   

Prizes at the September meeting will be awarded for:

  1. The ASHRAE member that brings the most potential member guests (1st and 2nd place) 
  2. The firm that has the most members in attendance (1st and 2nd place)

In addition, each member who brings a guest/potential member to a 2017-2018 meeting will have his or her name entered into a drawing, if your guest becomes a member before the May 2018 meeting.  The prizes will be announced at the September meeting and the drawing will be held at the May 2018 meeting. Please be sure to register your guest in advance and have your guest recorded at check-in on the meeting night.
