The National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) has donated $10,000 to ASHRAE research. The donation was made at the 2016 NEBB Annual Conference, April 14-16, in Albuquerque, NM.

For 16 years, NEBB has been a member of the ASHRAE Golden Circle, a group of contributors who provide significant financial leadership to ASHRAE at the $10,000 and higher level.

NEBB President Jean-Paul Leblanc presented the donation to James Vallort, ASHRAE vice president, during the plenary session of the NEBB conference.

“We are pleased to continue a tradition that has now raised $160,000 from NEBB toward ASHRAE research,” said Leblanc. “ASHRAE’s current research strategy centers on sustainability and maximizing resources while minimizing the impact on the environment. This goal is very consistent with NEBB’s mission and the work performed by our certified firms and professionals.”

ASHRAE Golden Circle investors contribute more than 10% of the total amount of funds collected for the society’s research initiatives.
