On September 1, 2021, the ASHRAE UK Midlands Chapter held a Student Competition and Life Members event to honour the contributions of ASHRAE Life Members in their chapter. For their outstanding contribution to the ASHRAE association, all life members received certificates of recognition. Life members shared stories of how they got started in the ASHRAE and how they were able to stay as members for 35 years or more. The event was beneficial to all students and members of ASHRAE.

ASHRAE believes Student members are the future of our society and our industry. With this in mind, on September 1, 2021, ASHRAE UK Midlands YEA and Student Activities held a student research paper competition online. Undergraduates, Masters, and PhDs were all eligible to compete. Students from Loughborough, Demontford, and Cardiff competed and presented their research theses in the competition. The research topics comprised sustainability, zero energy, Indoor environmental quality, IoT, electrical services, closed-loop heating systems, and intelligent control. Within the time limit of 5 minutes for each participant, all of the pupils performed admirably. The competition's major requirement was that students show their work in 5 minutes with just 3 slides. The student's presentation was assessed by an industrial judging panel made up of representatives from Vexo, Pick Everard, IES, Hilson Moran, and Crookes Walker. The winners received awards of about £1000 from ASHRAE UK Midlands.

The student competition winners are listed below.
