    2016-2017 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

I hope everyone is enjoying the welcomed lower temperatures for August that have been unheard of for several years. I know for me, it gave me some energy to strive on with all the steps and processes ahead of me that normally I would be struggling with due to the heat this time of year. I hope it is contagious!

I want to thank everyone who attended our August Luncheon at the Petroleum Club. It was an amazing turnout and a great speaker. Our speaker for September is Mike Donovan from the Houston Chapter of ASHRAE. He is speaking on:
Fan Energy as it Relates to ASHRAE 90.1 and AMCA 210 Certified Products
It will be another great presentation. We are focused this year to bring topics and education that have not been addressed in the past couple of years.


If you have a special topic you would like to learn more about, please send to Dan Torres, our CTTC Chair and copy me. We want to make this a great year for our chapter and need everyone’s support. We look forward to seeing you on September 21.


Best regards,
Patty Parrish, President
ASHRAE Fort Worth

ASHRAE Activities

We’ve gotten a good head start planning some early ASHRAE activities. This fall we plan to meet in conjunction with the NTAEE Chapter at TCU Amon Carter Stadium, in addition we will enjoy a Refrigeration Tour at a local brewery. Watch for upcoming golf tournaments benefitting Research Promotion.

Get Involved

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.
