Letter From the President
Is it Spring yet? By the time our March meeting rolls around, we should hopefully be done with the crazy winter weather. Our meeting will be held on March 18th at the Petroleum Club at 11:30.
This month, we have Bruce Barrett from Multistack in to present on dedicated heat recovery chiller applications. Fort Worth CRC registration has opened, so if you’ve ever had an interest in how Society conducts its business, you’ll have an opportunity to attend a local convention. It will be many years until CRC is hosted in Fort Worth again, and the committee has done a great job of planning events to make this CRC great! I hope to see many of you there. Thanks and we’ll see you on the 18th.
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.
