    2015-2016 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend and is enjoying the beautiful weather we are having this Spring.  And I hope all of you that attended our ASHRAE Standards Seminar and Luncheon in March really enjoyed it. 


We have another awesome luncheon meeting lined up for April with a Joint Meeting with NTAEE and ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, Sheila Hayer, to speak on “Integrating Renewable Energy Systems into Buildings” -- Thursday, April 21st at the TCU Meyer-Martin Complex.  We will also be having a YEA Bowling Event that evening at Main Event in Fort Worth.


We will have our first annual Sporting Clay Shoot on Thursday, April 14th at Alpine Shooting Range.  Please get your teams together and come out to “pull” for Research Promotion.  Registration is also open for the ASHRAE Region VIII CRC in Tyler, TX.  There is information and registration links to our upcoming events below under Upcoming Events.  I look forward to seeing many of you in April at our upcoming events and at the CRC in Tyler!


Best regards,
Clif Upham

ASHRAE Activities

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.

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.
