Why should I attend the
2016 ASHRAE Region IX Chapter Regional Conference?

“The Conference is for chapter and regional officers only.”   NO!!!  The conference is open to all ASHRAE members. It’s a valuable chance to network with regional and society officers that you may never get a chance to see at national summer and winter meetings. Committee chairs will have access to specialized training seminars. All attendees will have free access the 2016 Nebraska Architectural Engineering Conference technical sessions and expo, so come get your PDHs, CEUs, or whatever else you need to maintain your professional registration requirements!! And have a lot of fun at our social events while you do.
The Nebraska Architectural Engineering Conference (NAEC) is a one day event. The event consists of a 20 technical sessions on different building systems, technologies and applications. In addition to the technical presentations throughout the day, there will be a large central exposition with product representatives and their products and services for a wide variety of building materials and technologies. Continuing education credits are available to session attendees.
And this year we will have a special welcome for Tim Wentz, our new society president who will be giving his presidential address. He is bringing friends including past presidents and vice presidents who have heard the rumors of Region IX’s legendary CRCs and wanted to see for themselves. We may also have special visits from local political leaders and industry celebrities.
We intentionally kept our registration comparable to all previous CRCs, though we are offering substantially more! If you book early, fullregistration is $200 per person while your companion only pays $100. addition to getting networking, family time, professional development hours, and representing your ASHRAE chapter; you would pay something similar to any one of these events that we are offering including all day access to the Architectural Engineering technical sessions, two exclusive banquettes, two social
parties, and the always infamous Nebraska Hospitality Suite. All golf outings and other social functions and well as the technical conference may also be purchased ala-carte.Omaha is the most centrally located city in the U.S. Hence why it’s called ‘The Heartland’. For all that you will get to do and experience at this year’s CRC, it will be well worth the travel. There is travel assistance for officers and select committee members.
“We usually do a family vacation that weekend.”  This conference is a family vacation!!! We have a full list and schedule of family activities. Lodging is at the Omaha Hilton, a new and luxury hotel and conference center. You are walking distance to the historic old market, www.oldmarket.com, museums, train depot and other kids center, Century Link Auditorium (Featuring Journey on August 6th!), and TD Ameritrade Ballpark (home of the College World Series). Also, with any registration you get a free day pass to the Henry Doorly Zoo, voted the WORLD’S BEST! We will also be offering exclusive behind the scenes yours and a banquette at the aquarium where you can get face to face with some special critter guests!
