The Gold Coast Chapter of ASHRAE was chartered in 1967 to promote industry standards and best practices at the local level. The chapter provides continuing education through monthly meetings open to engineers, contractors, building owners, and other industry professionals. Outside of these meetings, members benefit from networking socials, training events and community service programs. Each year, the chapter also hosts both a Golf Tournament and Fishing Tournament benefitting research promotion.
