2020 Louisville ASHRAE Program Membership Survey - Results
 
Thank you to all 26 respondents who completed the Louisville ASHRAE Membership Program Survey. Your input will help us serve you better. We have taken the results from the survey and are building our program around those. Currently, the Louisville Chapter has 197 area assigned members. That means we had less than a 15% completion rate for the survey. To increase this for next year’s survey, we will be increasing our engagement with the membership to provide you with all the benefits that ASHRAE has to offer.

To start the year, we will have Dennis Knight, Former ASHRAE Society VP speaking on COVID-19 and building readiness. This is something you all have asked for and we have secured.

Membership Program Survey Winner: Dennis Barrett
