Adam Graham - HTS
2016-2017 Research Promotion Chair

2017.05.05
Thanks for your continued support for ASHRAE Research Canada!

ASHRAE Research plays a huge role in all aspects of our built environment. Our homes, offices, schools, hospitals, retail spaces and restaurants are all affected and hopefully protected by their respective HVAC&R systems.

Our objective for the 2016-2017 RP Campaign is $29,000. Although this seems like a lot, our chapter history has shown us this objective is attainable. No donation is too small, and all money raised goes to ASHRAE Research Canada.

Georges Maamari, Abbey Sauders, Michael Swayne, Robert Lefebvre, and Frank Bann have all agreed to help support this cause as a part of the ASHRAE RP Committee.. Please contact any of us with your RP questions. We have started our annual calling campaign so expect to hear from one of us shortly if you have not yet.

Last meeting’s 50/50 helped support of our 2016-2017 RP Campaign. This event raised $272.50 for Research. A special thanks to all that have donated tickets. We are always looking for donors that may have something to contribute for our monthly raffles. Please contact me if interested in donating tickets for the upcoming year.

As of April 30, 2017, we have raised $23375 towards our campaign goal, approximately 81% of our objective. Thanks to all our donors who continue to support the RP Campaign.

A list of current 2016-2017 RP Campaign donors will be updated for each monthly newsletter, so donate quickly to see you name appear!

The results have been tabulated, and the 2015-2016 Research Promotion Campaign ended with a bang! For the second year in a row the Ottawa Valley Chapter was able to surpass our $27,000 RP objective handed down by Society. In total, together we raised $33,879 towards research. As Georges said last year, I cannot say enough about how impressed I am with our chapter’s generosity. It goes to show how dedicated our members and local industry are towards supporting and advancing ASHRAE, with the added bonus of all the research money raised in Canada being reinvested in Canada.

I’d like to thank everyone for their contributions to our ASHRAE Research Campaign. In addition, I’d like to give a special shout out to this year’s RP committee of Georges Maamari, Mike Swayne, Steve Moons and Bob Kilpatrick. Thank you gentlemen for your help!

At the May Program meeting, we raffled off RedBlacks home opener tickets, generously donated by Airtron. The raffle raised $610 towards our ASHRAE Research Campaign, and I (Abbey Saunders) was winner of the tickets. I know what you are thinking, it wasn’t fixed, check the video and see for yourself that I did not draw my own ticket.

Again, thank you for all your contributions to support ASHRAE Research this year. Adam Graham will be taking over as RP Chair for the 2016-2017 ASHARE year, and I ask you to please extend your generosity next year and help Adam meet the chapter’s next challenge.

Background from 20121019 Manual for Chapter Operations:

The Research Promotion Committee is appointed by the president-elect in conformance with chapter bylaws. The chair in turn appoints a vice chair and a committee. The number of committee members will depend upon the expected work load. The more individuals, the lighter the load on any single volunteer. Willingness to do the work, however, is most important. Assignments should be made so that no one has more than eight (8) contacts to make. Refer to the Research Promotion Training Manual, Timeline Section for suggestions in structuring the committee (06-06-26-30). The duties of this committee are as follows:

  1. Communicate effectively about the objectives, accomplishments and benefits of ASHRAE research and its value to every ASHRAE member and the industry.
  2. Increase the annual income for Societysponsored research through chapter solicitation of members and businesses which directly or indirectly benefit from ASHRAE research. Contribution goals for businesses are shown in the Research Promotion Training Manual, Timeline Section under the index tab marked “Overview” (06-06-26-31). Contributions from one hundred percent of the membership should be solicited in amounts not less than those used in the formula for Research Promotion for the Presidential Award of Excellence (PAOE).
  3. Develop a plan and set a total goal for funds to be collected. This goal shall be set with the input and commitment of chapter officers.
  4. Develop a prospect list of businesses in the area, especially those represented in the Society membership and those in an ASHRAE-related field.
  5. Assign minimum goals for these prospects as outlined in B above. Discuss each goal and how it was set with each committee member.
  6. Assign each prospect to a committee member and prepare a detailed program with targeted dates for activities and reports. If it appears the schedule will not be met, assign another solicitor to the prospect. Do not hesitate to tactfully remove anyone who is not doing the job.
  7. Follow current administrative procedures for collecting and reporting contributions.
  8. Complete Research Promotion Donor Form and submit with all checks sent to Research Promotion. (See Appendices TT1 and TT2) (03-10-18-59)
  9. Keep good records. A chronological log of events will be useful to committee members in following years. Maintain a written record of each activity.
  10. Cooperate and coordinate efforts with Regional Vice-Chairs for Research Promotion. (For chapters assigned to a region.)
  11. The Research Promotion Committee shall determine the locations in which the Research Promotion training of Research Promotion chapter chairs shall be held. These trainings shall take place between July 15th and September 30th. (520-164-006)(06-01-25/26-10B)
  12. Work with the president-elect to select the Research Promotion Chair one year prior to appointment and involve this person in the current Research Promotion campaign.
  13. Coordinate with chapter officers one meeting per year with “Research” as a theme.
