    2015-2016 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

Greetings! I wanted to thank everyone who attended our Fall Golf Classic at Waterchase Golf Club and I especially would like to thank David Muzzy and Sean Rath for all of their hard work putting the tournament together!  It was a huge success and it looks like we made around $8,000 for ASHRAE Research Promotion. 


Regarding our chapter membership, we are currently up 4 members over last year but if you know of anyone who may be interested in becoming a member of our chapter or who would like to know the benefits of being a member of our chapter please have them contact me or Keith Woodlee, our Membership Promotion Chair at Keithw@encoremechanical.com.


This month we have another very exciting topic on “Net Zero Buildings” and our speaker will be Scott West.  We’ll be having a joint meeting with IBSPA (International Building Performance Simulation Association) so it should be a great opportunity to meet and network with folks from their organization.  We are also having a YEA Happy Hour afterwards at the Flying Saucer at 5:30 PM. 


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.
