About Us


The Society is organized and operated for the exclusive purpose of advancing the arts and sciences of heating, refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation, the allied arts and sciences and related human factors for the benefit of the general public, as defined in the Certificate of Consolidation. To fulfill its role, the Society shall recognize the effect of its technology on the environment and natural resources to protect the welfare of posterity. 

Since its founding in 1894, ASHRAE has helped shape the growth of the industry to which its members belong and has made many immeasurable contributions to the public. 

Through volunteer effort, ASHRAE sponsors research, develops standards for industry, publishes technical and scientific data, and organizes conferences and educational activities for both its members and others professionally concerned with refrigeration processes or with the design and maintenance of environmental conditions in buildings. In addition to activity at the Society, ASHRAE chapters throughout the United States, Canada and overseas sponsor local programs.

The Madison ASHRAE Chapter is in Region VI.
