ASHRAE’s Honors and Awards program recognizes the dedicated ASHRAE Members who give freely of their time and expertise to fulfill the Society’s mission of advancing the arts and sciences of HVAC&R to serve humanity and provide a sustainable world. Our award recipients exemplify the best in engineering and technology by continually bringing credit to the profession and the Society.

ASHRAE is proud of the many contributions its men and women have made on behalf of the Society and to our industry.  We encourage you to help us recognize those members who deserve to be thanked by nominating them for an appropriate award.
