The purpose of the Honors & Awards committee is to identify and submit qualified candidates for chapter, region and society awards and honors. The committee consists of the chair of the Honors & Awards, chair of History, chapter President and others who have been active in the chapter.
Anyone can nominate a member for an Honor or Award, with the exception of a few awards that are given by specific groups within ASHRAE. The easiest route is to go through the Chapters Honors and Awards Committee which present the nominations at CRC in August. Each award has a deadline of eithr December 1st or May 1st. The December 1st submissions are given at the Winter meeting in January one year after the submission; the May submission is given at the June Annual meeting one year after the submission.
The Distinguised Service Award and the Exceptional Service Award are given at the Annual meeting and require a point sheet calculation which is available on the Honors and Awards page of ASHRAE. Tjese awards must be in cooperation with the candidates. Their help is needed to put together a submission.
