The Grassroots Governmental Activities Committee (GGAC) is actively involved in providing current and relevant information to chapter members regarding local and state governmental activities where the design industry, energy initiatives, and building codes may be impacted. The Committee promotes ASHRAE standards to governing officials by being actively involved in keeping local, provincial and state governments updated on technical issues.
Since the establishment of the Grassroots Governmental Activities Committee in 2013, educating governmental officials has been the primary focus. This has been especially true when considering the positive or detrimental affects potential alterations to building codes and/or energy codes may have in the design industry and energy sector.
