President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

It appears the changing of the seasons has made its presence known this last week. I hope everyone is enjoying the start of Fall in the heartland and here is to hoping Winter doesn’t try to crash the Fall party too soon. I also hope you all enjoyed our presentation last month from Tim Wentz. We are very lucky as a chapter to have such a tremendous speaker as one of our members.

We had great attendance at both meetings. Our team is very interested in your feedback on our meetings (Topics, Food, Locations, etc.) If you could please fill out the Program Evaluations after the meetings we would appreciate it. Our Board of Governors and each of the chairs are dedicated to bringing value to your Nebraska ASHRAE meetings and ASHRAE membership. I’m personally committed to reading all of the program evaluations. 

For those of you that are not aware, on July 1st of this year, Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) became a grassroots committee. This change will ensure YEA has a strong foundation within ASHRAE to continue with the success of the program over the past decade. The move to Grassroots will put even more focus on developing resources and programs for all chapters. Some of the programs include Leadership Weekends, Leadership U, LeaDRS, Awards, etc.

Our local YEA committee hosted their first YEA event last month. They hosted a putt-putt golf outing followed with a happy hour. From all accounts fun was had by all! They have planned another set of technical sessions in Omaha and Lincoln this month. See the flyer later in the newsletter for more details. No need to be YEA (under 35) to attend!

Our next Chapter meeting in Omaha is a building tour at Alvine’s new office on October 9. The Lincoln Section will be Wednesday October 10 at Valentino’s. I look forward to seeing you there.
