The first meeting of the proposed chapter was held on January 29, 1954 in the Teepee Room of the Franciscan Hotel in downtown Albuquerque. There were 12 people in attendance. Over the next several months other meetings were held until a petition with thirty signatures was presented with a charter request. The Chapter received its charter on July 26, 1954.
Over the years since the chapter was chartered, chapter members have held various positions within the ASHRAE Society including President, Vice-President, Director and Regional Chairman and numerous regional positions.
