Chapter membership grew by almost 20%. We maintained our existing members and continued to add professional and student members thanks in part to the Chapters ability to offer Professional Development Hours (PDH) for member participation in chapter technical webinars and seminars.
Our chapter continued to receive generous support from our corporate sponsors. Sponsorship dollars assist us in the issuance of PDH credits to members, present events, and establish scholarship. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without this support.
Webinars and Technical Adventures
We presented seven webinars, one hybrid in-person webinar, and two in person events with average attendance of 35 active participants.
Each webinar is recorded and posted to our YouTube Channel for those who weren’t able to attend or to get a second listen.
The AEE Canada East again hosted an in-person social/technical/networking event. This year, the CFL’s Ottawa Redblacks took on the Montreal Alouettes. It was another resounding success. Almost 50 professionals were able to gather to catch up, establish new connections, and enjoy the game! The weather was fantastic. Based on feedback, we expect next years event even better.
The AEE Canada East welcomed almost 70 participants to Dartmouth Nova Scotia for a full day conference which featured 9 technical presentations and 3 keynotes for a total of 12 sessions.
A number of key sponsors helped to anchor the conference. Trane once again acted as our presenting sponsor. Nova Scotia Power, EMCO, EfficiencyONE, ASHRAE Halifax, Eastpoint, Hysovent, and MCW Custom Energy Solutions contributed at various levels. Many of our sponsors also participated in a modest trade show.
Our 12 overall sessions were presented by an amazing roster of professionals who brought a diverse set of experiences and perspectives.

Our volunteer blog was active! With 12 posts from a variety of contributors, the blog featured announcements, recaps, editorials, and technical pieces.
