Welcome to Austin ASHRAE, we are excited you came to visit!

With more than 56,000 members from over 132 nations, ASHRAE is a diverse organization representing building system design and industrial processes professionals around the world.

ASHRAE impacts your life more than you may know. We are the grassroots volunteer organization that shapes our industry with handbooks, standards, guidelines, personal certifications, continuing education, research, professional development, networking and community engagement. Together we impact our built environment which reaches nearly every person.

Our active chapter of over 350 professionals meets monthly from August to May, typically on the 3rd Thursday each month. Location and time may change month to month, but each time we focus on technical topics with guest speakers and provide Professional Development Hours (PDHs) to maintain your professional credentialing.

We meet frequently outside of chapter meetings for a variety of professional, community, technical and social events. You can find details by visiting our online chapter calendar, reading the newsletter, following us on social media or by attending our monthly meetings.

Committees made of local volunteers are a strong force that makes our chapter a positive change agent within the industry. Our group is comprised of the Board of Governors (BOG), officers, committee chairs, and committee members. Feel free to reach out to any one of us for support or to learn how to get connected.

If you are on this website, then you are someone who benefits from our industry, I encourage you to engage in all ASHRAE has to offer. This is your opportunity to be a part of the change you want to see in the world. From personal experience, your membership and involvement with ASHRAE will pay dividends in your professional, personal and long term goals.


See you soon,
