Invitation from ASHRAE Dallas Chapter:
What to Expect at 2024 CRC

Join us in Dallas!

It is my distinct honor to extend an invitation to you for the 2024 Chapter Regional Conference in Dallas, TX.


This year's CRC has undergone a thoughtful transformation with the ASHRAE chapter leader of today in mind. In response to invaluable feedback from recent CRCs, we've implemented strategic changes while introducing innovative ideas to provide a fresh perspective on CRC. All changes have been made in consultation with regional leadership.  Key modifications are outlined below.

Our overarching objective is to elevate CRC into an unmissable event, fostering even deeper connections. Recognizing the challenges that come with change, we appreciate your commitment to this journey. We are confident that the adjustments made will enhance the overall experience for attendees, leaders, and volunteers, paving the way for an improved CRC in the future.
