Letter From the President
We will not be having a regular Chapter Meeting in December, but please join us on December 17th at Colonial Country Club at 11:30am for the ASHRAE Research Promotion Donor Recognition Luncheon (see details below).
Our TCU/K-State tailgate was a huge success. It think the 50 or so people in attendance would agree. The event generated a lot of interest in our TCU Student Chapter and we have a meeting set up on the 19th to begin to grow the student branch. There is still ample opportunity if you would like to get involved in the Chapter. Please grab a board member at one of our upcoming meetings, should you want to volunteer. I hope to see you at Martin House, but, if not, I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving Holiday.
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.
