ASHRAE launches redesigned Website
With a focus on ease of navigation and new technology, the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers unveiled its redesigned Website, www.ASHRAE.org .
An improved Website is a cornerstone of fulfilling the society’s new strategic plan, which calls for sustainability leadership, world-class educational programs, a raised public profile and global access to technical information. The new, simpler design incorporates a technology that will integrate with a new member database that goes live this fall, allowing members to easily access subscription management tools for eLists and newsletters, and account history for events, purchases and dues.
“The ASHRAE Website is the key component of the society’s strategy to provide membership service and technical information to the industry,” said Steve Comstock, director of publications and education. “With the new technology incorporated into the site, our members and key audiences will be able to access crucial information faster and with greater ease.”
Members will have access to the MyASHRAE section, where they will be able to use the site to reflect their specific interests. Members also can sign up for e-mail updates when updated content has been added to a particular section, and a lost password function allows users to quickly retrieve forgotten passwords.
The upgraded site will also include a redesigned bookstore upon the section’s completion in December.
