Letter From the President
As we wind down the ASHRAE Fort Worth Chapter Year, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all of you who have sacrificed your time to help make this year successful, fulfilling, and fun. As a volunteer organization, we rely on those individuals who see the greater goal of ASHRAE in what we do every day. None of us get paid to do this, and we all have other jobs that require time and commitment. I really appreciate all who took the time out of all the rest of life’s obligations to assist us.
We just wrapped up CRC in Fort Worth. I think all of the 150+ in attendance would agree that this was one of the best CRCs in years. Hopefully, we’ll see some of you next year in Tyler. This month’s meeting is back in the Fort Worth Petroleum Club. Sam Gunderson will be presenting on Fort Worth’s commitment to the Better Buildings Challenge. He’s presented a few times over the last few years and it’s always really good presentation on a great program that is gaining momentum locally. This is our last formal lunch meeting of the year. I’ll be turning the chapter over to Clif Upham at Past President’s Night in June. It’s been a pleasure to work with you all!
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.
