posted Mar 7, 2017, 8:29 AM by ASHRAE Saskatoon Research

Hello everyone!

This years Research Promotion campaign is underway!  We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their past donations and invite them to continue their support this year.  We will be contacting all our past donors within the next few weeks and hope to reach our goal of $12,100.  

Your donations will go towards funding research in the HVAC/R industry at various educational institutions and companies throughout the country or internationally. 

When you donate to ASHRAE Research Canada, 100% of your contribution will go towards research within the country. Your contributions will not be used for payrolls, overhead or other miscellaneous cost that a research facility may incur.  All of your contributions go towards things like lab equipment and materials, testing, certifications etc... 

There are many exciting research projects underway this year which someday may lead to revisions to,  or new ASHRAE standards and new technologies.  Please feel free to visit the ASHRAE RP website for more information.

Thanks again, and don't forget to donate!

Thank you for donating and helping fuel ASHRAE’s research into new technologies, sustainability, and a better understanding of the built environment.

I would also like to thank Jesse Friggstad, Kirk Nagus, and Ryan MacGillivray for helping me on the RP Committee.  Without them, I do not think we would have made even half our goal.  Thank you.

I look forward to the upcoming year and continuing on with the work of past RP chairs.

So far, $3,690 has been raised for ASHRAE research.  Our goal is $9,500, so we are about 38.8% of the way there.

I have something to admit:  I have been slacking off with the ASHRAE Research Promotion calling campaign.  Jesse Friggstad, Kirk Nagus, and Ryan MacGillivray have volunteered to help me and having been working on the calling campaign, but I have not phoned anyone quite yet.  My plan is to have contacted everyone on my part of the contact list by the April ASHRAE meeting, so if you run into me at the meeting, you can check how I am doing at that.  I am sorry for not being more zealous in the RP Chair role.  If you want to know more about ASHRAE Research, then please contact me.  Remember that research money raised in Canada stays in Canada.
