What the CRC & Exhibition 2018 is About
The term Chapters Regional Conference (“CRC”) defines a meeting of all the chapters of the region. The Chapters Regional Committee conducts the orientation session, caucus, executive session and business meetings. The conference also includes workshops, technical sessions, technical tours, addresses by Society officers, regional award presentations and offers opportunities for regional fellowship. The CRC is intended to provide a forum for the dissemination of information pertaining to chapter and regional activities.
Attendance at meetings of the CRC is expected of all Chapter Delegates and Alternates, Director & Regional Chair, Regional Historian, Regional Refrigeration Chair (optional), Regional Webmaster, Treasurer , Regional Vice Chairs for Membership Promotion, Student Activities, Chapter Technology Transfer, Research Promotion, Regional Member, Alternate and Reserve Alternate to the Nominating Committee, Chapter Historian Regional Program and chapter committee chairs of the above mentioned committees. In addition, any Society member residing in the region is encouraged to attend these meetings. The attendance of chapter officers and committee chairs, although not mandatory, is strongly encouraged.
Apart from conducting and coordinating Society-related activities, the following are also import parts of the purpose of the CRC:
- - Conducting technical sessions on subjects that will educate as well as increase attendance.
- - Organizing social activities that will increase attendance and promote camaraderie.
- - Recognizing and presenting awards to chapter and regional members.
Although still less than one year old, ASHRAE Region XIV has already enjoyed significant success and extended its impact in Europe. The first Region XIV CRC was held in December 2017 in Belgrade. Combining the joint technical conference, over 250 delegates and 70 exhibitors from all over Europe and the USA took part in the event. We are privileged to host the 2018 CRC in Loughborough, and we are putting in every effort to make it successful event.
The 2018 Region XIV CRC & Exhibition will comprise a Technical Conference & Exhibition on Thursday 6 - Friday 7 September, to showcase the latest research and development in the fields of HAVC&R, Built Environment and Sustainability, and the business meetings and training on Friday 7 - Sunday 9 September. We expect over 200 attendees, including executives, practitioners, stakeholders and students, will attend the event. Full details of the programme can be found on the Programme page.
