Student Activities Committee

Attention Students!

Have you heard about ASHRAE’s SmartStart Program? SmartStart is a 3-year program available to student members that allows you to upgrade to Associate level at a rate that is recent-graduate friendly. Simply put, it’s the best way for ASHRAE student members to receive the many benefits of Associate grade membership after finishing college. New program prices are (for 3 years respectively): $20 (+) $73 (+) $94 = $187 for 3 years of full Associate grade ASHRAE membership! Participants must be current students. Learn more here.


The Student Activities Committee is looking for new members. The committee assists in awarding scholarships to qualifying students each spring and working with student chapters.

This is an excellent opportunity to meet our future engineers from local universities and help them chart their careers going forward!

This year, the committee will be continuing the four student branch chapters;  SIU-Edwardsville, University of Missouri-Columbia (Mizzou), Missouri S&T, and SIU-Carbondale.

If you are interested in volunteering or becoming involved in any of these chapters, please contact Erin Riley at eriley@brplusa.com.
