Every year the Toronto Chapter Sponsors students to attend the winter conference. The 2013 ASHRAE Winter Conference was hosted in Dallas, Texas and 6 students were sponsored. Two students from Humber attended: Myself (Emma Wildeman) and Aaron Wouters. Students from Ryerson University and Seneca College travelled with us, along with the Toronto Chapter Student Activities Chair Michael McEvanue.
Activities of the trip included a mechanical tour of the University of Texas’s Arlington campus; seminars on technical subjects such as IAQ and design tools; student mixers to meet ASHRAE students from around the world; and the largest HVAC industry expo with thousands of vendors.
Next year the winter conference will be held in New York and if enough students are interested the Toronto Chapter will charter a bus! Keep your mind open to this amazing experience and stay tuned for news in fall 2013. *You* could be sponsored next year to attend the conference.
