Memphis CRC a Huge Success!

Congratulations to the East Tennessee Chapter of ASHRAE as we were by far the most awarded chapter at the recent Chapters Regional Conference held this July in Memphis, Tennessee. Our chapter finished in first place among all chapters in Region VII! We had eleven chapter members in attendance and those that made the journey were able to participate in business meetings, technical sessions, and workshops. That is, when they were not dining on Memphis Bar-B-Q! Rumor has it that an Elvis sighting occurred on Beale Street, but we've yet to make an official verification of that.
