It is never too soon to get the Region III Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) penciled in on your calendars. This year will be held on August 17 – 19, 2017 in Roanoke, Virginia. A full day of technical sessions will be held on August 17th. All information regarding CRC can be found on the ASHRAE Region III website, here: http://region3.ashraeregions.org/

The spring tour is scheduled for May 5th has just a few spots available. The research lab tour, demo, and BBQ is sponsored by DMR and Home Innovations Research Labs.
