Letter From the President
I hope everyone is doing well in 2017. I am experiencing the vast masses at the ASHRAE Winter Conference and AHR Expo in Las Vegas. It is amazing how many people attend this event and all the manufacturers involved that are in our industry. Great opportunities to better your career and be on top of the ever-changing world we work in. I hope many of you were able to attend as well.
.I also hope to see everyone at our next monthly luncheon on February 15th back at the Petroleum Club. Our speaker is Distinguished Lecturer M. Dennis Knight, P.E. Mr. Knight will be speaking on Building Performance Analysis for Building Performance Rating Systems.
This presentation focuses on building performance rating systems and their requirements for energy use reduction and whole building optimization. The program provides an overview of how to use computer assisted building performance analysis systems and ASHRAE 90.1 Appendix G to maximize the design team’s ability to achieve the greatest number of credits when seeking project certification under a building performed rating system.
We have several major events coming up. Day on the Hill, our Spring Golf Tournament, then off to OKC for the 2017 Region VIII CRC. Check below for more details on each of these events, and I hope you will consider attending.
ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Patty Parrish
- President-Elect – Van Cashen
- Secretary – Saul Martinez
- Treasurer – Allen Grammer
- RP Chairman – Clif Upham
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.
