GAC (Government Affairs Committee)

The Governmental Affairs Committee (GAC) is actively involved in providing current and relevant information to chapter members regarding local and state governmental activities where the design industry, energy initiatives, and building codes may be impacted.  The Committee promotes ASHRAE standards to governing officials by being actively involved in keeping local, provincial and state governments updated on technical issues.

Since the establishment of the GAC in 2013, educating governmental officials has been the primary focus.  This has been especially true when considering the positive or detrimental affects potential alterations to building codes and/or energy codes may have in the design industry and energy sector.

Commettee name change:
At the 2018 Annual Meeting in Houston, the Grassroots Government Advocacy Committee (GGAC) officially changed its name to the Government Affairs Committee (GAC). This name change came after discussions were held within the Committee and with ASHRAE leadership. Questions had been raised about the use of the words "grassroots" and "advocacy" as they do not always translate well outside the United States. The name change also more closely reflects the work of the Committee at the Society level and within the Chapters.
