The Conneticut Chapter geographically serves the State of Connecticut (except Fairfield County) and three counties in Western Massachusetts (Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin). The Chapter has grown to more than 530 Society members!

Our Chapter has a diverse group of attendees at our monthly meetings, ranging from Engineers, Building Owners, Contractors, Equipment Manufacturer's Representatives, experienced members to college students!  Join today, attend our meetings and be a part of our exciting Chapter!  If you are in the HVAC industry, you can't afford not be be a part of ASHRAE!

Monthly meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 6:45 PM at the Courtyard by Marriott in Cromwell, CT. A free Technical Session precedes the dinner meeting and begins at 5:00 PM. Check out our calander for off site tours.
