What is the Chapter Opportunity Fund?

The Manual for Region Operations (a great summertime read for those who haven't had the pleasure) defines the purpose of the fund as "to promote chapter investment in a meaningful and expedient way to energize their members and improve their communities by demonstrating the impact of ASHRAE."

We would suggest your chapter fill out the form if you have an idea that would energize our chapter or imrpove your communiuty by demonstrating the impact of ASHRAE. 

Guidelines

Per the Manual for Region Operations the funds are assigned at the discretion of the DRC, are not required to be evenly distributed, and the "decision of the DRC shall be considered final and not subject to appeal." Following are example guidelines:
