Letter From the President
I hope everyone is having a great start to their fall. I am really looking forward to getting as many people involved in our chapter this year as possible so if you would like to get involved please do not hesitate to contact me.
We are also trying to use our website and newsletter as a platform to communicate everything to our members and we would like to keep everything as current as possible so if you have anything to share please let Patty Parrish, Connie Staudt, or I know. We had a great turnout for our meeting last month and I hope you will be able to attend our meeting this month as well where the topic will be “High Volume Low Speed Fan Technology” by Jason Hornsby.
Our Fall Golf Tournament is coming up on October 19th at Waterchase Golf Club, and I hope you can join us for this event. Please get your teams selected and forms filled out as soon as possible and sent to David Muzzy. It is always a great time and it helps us raise funds for ASHRAE Research Promotion. Thanks and I look forward to seeing everyone at our Fall Golf Tournament on October 19th and our Monthly Meeting on October 21st at the Petroleum Club.
ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Clif Upham
- President-Elect – Patty Parrish
- Secretary – Connie Staudt
- Treasurer – Joe Baierski
- RP Chairman – Jay Sullivan
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.
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.
