GGAC – Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee

GGAC – Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee

The Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee shall be responsible for organizing ASHRAE members at the grassroots level to influence and educate local, state, provincial, and national government bodies and officials in areas of interest to ASHRAE members, in order to better coordinate efforts and understanding between ASHRAE members and government as well as being responsible for developing the extent and the manner in which ASHRAE implements and pursues actions to influence government affairs and public policy.

A new standing committee beginning in Society Year 2013-14, the Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee (GGAC) wants members at all levels of ASHRAE to be a part of this new and exciting program. In Society Year 2015-16, the Advocacy Committee and the Grassroots Government Activities Committee merged into the Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee, bringing all of ASHRAE’s government affairs under one umbrella.
