Wes Bruce - Research Promotion Chair 2018-2019 / Past President

Welcome to another busy year of ASHRAE! I’m happy to serve as your Research Promotion Chair for 2018-19.

The RP campaign is vital to the success of ASHRAE as a whole - RP supports international and local technical research projects, Education and ALI, Scholarships, and many other initiatives.

This technical research contributes to the development of standards, guidelines, procedures, tools, and even the ASHRAE handbooks we use religiously.

Since 1960, over 845 research projects valued at $67.5+ Million have been conducted through funding from ASHRAE Research. 

Our chapter goal for this year is $12,250.00.

I would like to personally thank all of our RP sponsors, and look forward to continued success this year.

If you have any questions, concerns, or comments with regards to RP, please reach out to me anytime.

A little bit about myself:

Having graduated from Mechanical Engineering Technology, I was initially employed in the automotive industry prior to establishing a career in HVAC/R.

I’ve been a member of ASHRAE since 2009, and proud to be a member of our tightly-knit industry.
