Letter From the President
We’ve reached the end of our ASHRAE Fort Worth Chapter year. It’s been a pleasure serving you as Chapter President for the past 12 months. I feel like we’ve accomplished a lot, including a successful CRC in Fort Worth, many social events, and golf tournaments galore. I would like to thank the committee members and volunteers who have sacrificed time away from jobs and family to help us be successful.
Our last meeting this year will take place on Wednesday, June 17th from 6:00-9:00 pm at Times Ten Wine Cellar in Fort Worth. It’s our annual Past President’s Night which honors former president’s and serves as a platform to induct the Chapter Officers for the following year. It is a FREE event to attend and is open to anyone in the chapter. This is always a well-attended event and is a fun way to close out the year. I hope to see you there and thank you again for the opportunity to serve you as President.
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.
Join us at our next Chapter meeting on August 19 to kick off the 2015-2016 year -- 11:30am, Petroleum Club. Watch for more details...
