Letter From the President
Thank you to everyone that came out to last month’s meeting at UTA, I know parking and finding our room were a bit of a challenge so thank y’all for being flexible!
The holidays are officially on the horizon and with it a few reminders:
- Our November lunch meeting is on the second Wednesday of the month this year and our presentation will qualify as the 1-hour ethics PDH required for PE renewal -- so don't miss it!
- Our November happy hour is at America Gardens and is being sponsored by HTS and Viessman Boilers
- There will be no meeting in December as usual
Also, ASHRAE President Sheila Hayter will be joining us in March for our meeting, which will be held on the second Wednesday of that month, so try to be there if you can!
See you all soon and happy holidays!

ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Saul Martinez
- President-Elect – Allen Grammer
- Secretary – Scott West
- Treasurer – Jeremy Snyder
- RP Chairperson – Van Cashen
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.
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.
