Letter From the President
Happy New Year! For those of you that didn’t include “get involved in ASHRAE Fort Worth” in your New Year’s Resolutions, don’t worry, there is still time. Our January meeting finds us back in the friendly confines of the Fort Worth Petroleum Club.
One of our own members, Mack Wallace, will be presenting on the updates to the ASHRAE 90.1 Standard. Mack has served on the ASHRAE Standard 90.1 Committee for the past 18 years, so we decided to utilize his expertise and present on this major revision to the standard that includes more than 100 changes from the 2010 version. PLEASE RSVP at the link below, because I expect attendance at this presentation to be higher than normal. We have other presentations planned on dedicated heat recovery chillers and variable air volume diffusers. These presentations will be announced in the upcoming weeks, but it looks like we are on track for keeping our third Wednesday meeting at the Petroleum Club for the near future. I’m looking forward to working with you for the second half of our ASHRAE year and hope to see you soon. The link to RSVP for this month’s meeting is below, and please join us for YEA Happy Hour that evening at Brewster’s in the W 7th Street development.
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Jay Sullivan
- President-Elect – Clif Upham
- Secretary – Connie Staudt
- Patty Parrish – Treasurer
- RP Chairman – Tony Finch
We’ve gotten a good head start planning some early ASHRAE activities. In August we met in conjunction with the NTAEE Chapter at TCU Amon Carter Stadium. Septem ber meeting was held at the University of Texas at Arlington. In October we will meet again at the Petroleum Club downtown, and in November we will be planning a Refrigeration Tour at a local brewery. Watch for upcoming golf tournaments benefitting Research Promotion and for the upcoming CRC (Chapter Regional Convention) that will be held in our city in April 2015. Sign up sheets can be found on our website.
This year, we are trying to schedule events that will allow the membership to get more out of being a member of the Fort Worth Chapter than a PDH for attendance at a lunch meeting. We will be hosting happy hours after the meetings every month and sponsorship opportunities will be available. We are also trying to expand the involvement outside of the core group of people who have volunteered their time over the past few years. Let us know if you are interesting in volunteering for a position in the Chapter.
