    2014-2015 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

Happy Easter everyone!  We are in the final quarter of the ASHRAE year.  Our CRC event is rapidly approaching and the members of the committee are working diligently to make this one of the best events that our region has seen in years.  Based on our final push to the late April date, we’ve decided not to host our typical third Wednesday lunch presentation. 


Instead, we are hosting a research promotion event that evening (April 15th) at the Rahr Brewery in Fort Worth.  Bring the money that you would’ve spent on lunch, and enjoy some quality networking time surrounded by refrigeration.  All proceeds will go toward our ASHRAE research goal for this year.   Our golf tournament was held on Monday, March 30.  I would like to personally thank all the participants and committee members that made this year’s tournament a success.  I hope to see you on the 15th and look forward to working with you for the remainder of the ASHRAE year.




Chapter Officers

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

ASHRAE Activities

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.

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.
