Join us for our 3rd Annual Day of Learning and Trade Show!  This year our focus topic is Geothermal/Water Source Systems, and we anticipate more than 20 Local HVAC Suppliers will be available for visiting and discussing systems, equipment and technology with various Manufacturer Representatives.

Proceeds from this event go to support the WV ASHRAE Chapter and ASHRAE Research Promotion Campaign.  100% of the additional Bronze, Silver and Gold Sponsorships will be submitted as a tax deductible donation to ASHRAE RP in the name of the individual or organization making the Sponsorship.

A SPECIAL NOTE TO COLLEGE STUDENTS:  We will be working with our partner Sponsors of this Day of Learning to also make this a Career Fair for potential Internships and Employment opportunities. We urge you to not only take advantage of this Day of educational training classes, but also the chance to meet a future employer. We hope to see several of you there!
