ASHRAE Fort Worth Chapter

President’s Message

Our September meeting will be held on Wednesday, September 17th at the College Park Center Hospitality Suite on the UTA Campus.  One of our student members will be presenting on a topic related to his Ph.D. programs. Parking is available in the parking garage directly north of the facility.

Also, join us for YEA Happy Hour that evening. We will have tables reserved at The Flying Saucer in Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth.  We hope to see you at both.

The 2014-2015 ASHRAE Fort Worth year began last month with a great first meeting combining our chapter and the North Texas Association of Energy Engineers.  The venue at TCU’s Amon Carter stadium was wonderful and the program was equally strong.  The joint meeting gave our members and opportunity to network with other members of the industry that we might not otherwise interact with, and the Smart Cities presentation shed some light on some topics that we may not consider in our day to day HVAC&R careers.  I’d like to personally thank the NTAEE Chapter as well as a member of both organizations, David Muzzy, for helping coordinate the venue and facilitate interaction between the two organizations.

I’m equally excited about this month’s meeting.  Our presenter has been an active member of the ASHRAE Fort Worth UTA Student Chapter for a few years and has fulfilled recent internship positions in our market.  His presentation is part of his ongoing Ph.D. program and covers a topic that is becoming more and more prevalent in our industry.  This also gives us a chance to showcase another recently completed construction project in the area.  I hope you take the time out of your schedule to join us as I think it will be worth your while.

Following the meeting, we are hosting our second YEA Happy Hour at The Flying Saucer in Sundance Square.  We had a good turnout for last month’s happy hour and I hope to have more this month. I think everyone who attended would agree that it was a great time.  It’s a good opportunity to socialize with members of your chapter outside of the day-to-day responsibilities of our industry.

We are still actively recruiting volunteers to help us fill committee positions and get more involved in the local chapter.  If that interests you, please contact me or another one of the BOG members and we can get you involved.  I hope to see you all at the meeting on the 17th and look forward to working with you throughout the year. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if there is anything that I can help with.

Sincerely, Jay
