It is a pleasure to introduce the newest members of the ASHRAE Windsor Chapter! Please take some time to introduce yourselves to these individuals at the next meeting and welcome them to the Chapter.

Advertising and Promotion Actively participating in ASHRAE events is a great way to network and discuss potential projects and applications. Chapter meetings provide a captive audience and exposure to a group actively involved in our industry. Promotion opportunities are available during our chapter meetings, through the monthly newsletter and the new website.

TABLE TOP DISPLAY What better way to display a new product, existing line, or share great ideas than to have a table top display at our monthly chapter meetings? The fee to provide a Table Top Display is $200.00 (CAD). In addition to the presentation, the fee also covers the cost of the presenter’s meal at the event. If interested in providing a Table Top Display at a future meeting to promote product lines or technologies, please contact Paul Greff to schedule. [email protected] (519) 980-6542

BUSINESS CARD PROMOTION The monthly newsletter is distributed to all of our ASHRAE Windsor members as well as several others that are involved in our industry. Inclusion of your business card in the newsletter would provide a great opportunity to introduce your name and company to those members who may not know you personally. Business cards may also be displayed on the new website. The fee to include your business card in the newsletter is $100.00 (CAD) for the year. If interested in having your business card information included in the monthly newsletter, please contact Paul Greff. [email protected] (519) 980-6542
