Are you interested in helping out young up and coming members that are looking to break into the HVAC profession?
NAIT has a strong history of supplying local companies with HVAC professionals. Over the past few years our chapter has been active in reaching out to these students as well as the mechanical engineering students at the U of A. The past couple of years the U of A has put together a program that specifically deals with the Building Sciences industry. This elective course is full of students who are hoping to enter the Building Sciences field upon graduation. NAIT currently supplies our industry form a few separate programs. We will once again be speaking to many of these students this year.
Here is where you come in. We would like to offer you the opportunity to help out these students and be recognized. For each student that is sponsored we will recognize this contribution with a sticker on the inside of the student fundamentals book that will be presented to them. As well each student sponsor will be recognized to the local membership.
After several discussions, we are asking the Northern Alberta Membership to sponsor these students. Many of these students understand what is out there but do not truly realise the benefit of membership. Having a student membership allows these students to access numerous technical resources, be part of technical committees helping to shape our technology, and be informed of the daily in and outs of our industry. As well these students and potential employees will be encouraged to walk among us at our monthly meetings and various social events.
Currently we are looking to have these students membership fees covered and a copy of the current ASHRAE Fundamentals provided to these students for use in their studies.
