The North Piedmont Chapter represents ASHRAE members in the central area of North Carolina affectionately know by its residence as the Piedmont Triad or just The Triad.  The Triad encompasses the cities of Greensboro, Winston-Salem, High Point and the surrounding areas.  Some of the most prominent people and companies in the HVAC industry reside in our area and are very active in the regional and international levels of ASHRAE as well as being pillars of our local chapter.  Our chapter has approximately 200 members and we typically have at least a quarter of them attend our monthly meetings.

So if you are looking for networking opportunities in the HVAC or energy conservation industries, come to our meetings and mingle with some of the most prominent people in the industry in this area.  Or if you want to come and enjoy a great technical program, excellent meal and a beverage or two, you will find all three when you come to the meetings.  We especially encourage you men and women new to the industry to come and get involved.

Enjoy the web site, and we look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.  If you find any problems with the website or have any suggestions to improve it, please send an e-mail to
