Welcome to the beginning of the 2014-2015 Fort Worth ASHRAE Chapter year. I hope this message finds you well, and I hope you’ve had the opportunity to recover from the most recent Independence Day sunburn.
My name is Jay Sullivan and I’ll be serving as your Fort Worth Chapter President for the upcoming year. I want to take this opportunity to discuss some of the things that we have planned for the upcoming year. Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
RP Chairman – Tony Finch
President – Jay Sullivan
President-Elect – Clif Upham
Secretary – Nick Schroeder
Patty Parrish – Treasurer
We’ve gotten a good head start planning some early ASHRAE activities. We will not be hosting a July meeting to ensure that every gets ample opportunity to enjoy their summer break. Also note that our August meeting will be held in conjunction with the NTAEE Chapter. It will be held at TCU Amon Carter Stadium and will be on the third THURSDAY, August 21st. We also have a golf tournament on Monday, July 22st to raise funds for the upcoming CRC (Chapter Regional Convention) that will be held in our city in April 2015. Sign-up sheets can be found on the website and I’m sure you’ll be receiving an email or two in the upcoming weeks.
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. If you are interested in getting involved, we have many committee position open.
I look forward to getting to know you over the next year. If you have any suggestions as to how we can improve the chapter in order to benefit the membership, don’t hesitate to contact me. Enjoy the summer and keep checking the website for updates.
