    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

I want to thank everyone who attended the ASHRAE Region VIII Chapter Regional Conference in Tyler, TX this past weekend and I hope to see many of you at next year’s CRC in Oklahoma City. 


This month we have a terrific speaker and presentation lined up.  Our speaker will be Ken Koehler of Danfoss and our topic will be “The Benefits of Oil-Free Compressor Technology”.  We’ll be back at the Petroleum Club this month and this will be membership promotion month so if you bring a guest with you we will buy their lunch. 


We will be having our Past President’s night next month and the location and date will be announced soon.  As we come to a strong finish to our 2015-2016 chapter year, I want to extend my thanks to all of our chapter officers and committee chairs for all of their hard work this year.  I also want to say that it has been an honor and a privilege to serve as your chapter president. 


Best regards,
Clif Upham
ASHRAE Fort Worth

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.
