President’s Message

Greetings ASHRAE Members

Turns out engineers can and will roast a fellow ASHRAE member!  I learned many new things about Tim Wentz, aka the “Shortest person in ASHRAE,” at his Roast that I am sure this new information will be helpful in the future if we need to bribe ask Tim to fill in on any committees.  I want to thank our emcee Blake Ellis and Roasters Jim Ellis, Ron Feuerbach, Trent Hunt and Jack Wilhelmi.  You all helped make this a successful event with stories and jabs that I am sure were all 100% factual.

I also want to thank Abby Brophy, Tom Lewis and Will Morris for all the help in planning this event along with the CEU day earlier the same day.  Both events were very successful as a result of all the effort you donated to ASHRAE.  We are working on scheduling another CEU day this fall and already have some great topic ideas!

As our 2018-2019 ASHRAE year is coming to a close, I wanted to also thank the Nebraska Chapter Board, committee chair, co-chairs and volunteers for their dedication and commitment to attending meetings, planning chapter meetings, organizing events, raising funds for the ASHRAE Research and Scholarships and keeping our chapter running so smooth.  The success of the Nebraska Chapter is due to so many willing volunteers working together in both Lincoln and Omaha!

Our annual Nebraska Chapter ASHRAE Golf Outing is scheduled for Monday, June 10th at Iron Horse Golf Club in Ashland.  Thank you to Kyle Heberly and Aaron Rasell for planning this annual event for our Chapter!  Hope to see you all there.

Before we wind down the ASHRAE year there are a couple reminders I should mention.  First is that we are always looking for new individuals to join our chapter and be involved with the board or committees.  If you or anyone you know is interested in being involved in the chapter, please let me know as we are already planning the next year for our Chapter.  The other reminder is of the great opportunity to attend a Joint CRC with Region X in San Diego.  CRC runs from August 18 through August 20th at the Mission Bay Hilton.  If you are interested in any additional information about this CRC, please click here for the CRC website.  The hotel block is currently available so please check it out.
