AHRI’s Chairman’s Challenge is designed to support the current chairman’s goals for the association. Chairman Ed Purvis (Emerson) has named legislative and educational support as two important initiatives for his chairmanship.
The 2015 Chairman’s Challenge Contest is comprised of two components:
AHRI member companies are encouraged to host congressional or state legislators at their facilities in the United States. Click here for the AHRI Members Only Legislative Visit Toolkit and to review commonly asked questions about the legislative visits.
AHRI member company representative(s) are encouraged to visit local schools that include a HVACR and/or water heating program to promote the Rees Scholarship Program and careers in the industry. Click here for the AHRI Members Only School Visit Toolkit.
Contest participants will compete in two categories: multi-state companies and single state companies. If your company has facilities in multiple states you are considered a multi-state participant. If your company has multiple facilities in just one state, or you just have one facility, you are considered a single state participant. The company in each category with the most visits (both legislative and/or school) between January 1 and November 2, 2015, will be awarded at the 2015 AHRI Annual Meeting in Bonita Springs, Fla. All participants will be recognized during the meeting.
Contest participants must inform AHRI about any visit, and submit a photograph of the visit to Monica Cardenas. Participants may also post photos on AHRI's Facebook or Twitter pages, #AHRIChairmansChallenge. AHRI will announce all visits as they occur in the AHRI Update and on its Facebook page.
