Seeking employer support for your ASHRAE membership?

Most employers are happy to support your desire for involvement in a professional society like ASHRAE. Many organizational leaders are members of quite a few professional societies themselves. They understand how important membership in a professional society is to their own career and typically urge others to take advantage of what memberships have to offer.

If you aren’t sure where your employer stands, why not ask? We offer an easy Membership Justification Tool that you can customize to fit your needs. Simply copy, paste, personalize, and send this Employer Support Request Email Template. To view the entire Membership Justification Toolkit, complete with brochures, visit the Member Benefits page.
