President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

It’s hard to believe this beautiful weather we’re having in March, but hopefully it’s getting you primed for all of the wonderful spring/summer ASHRAE events the board is planning for you, including the annual golf outing, clay shooting tournament, among others. But next on the calendar is the YEA March Madness Viewing Party, which is scheduled for Friday, March 17th at 3:30 pm at DJ’s Dugout in Aksarben Village. Appetizers will be provided by ASHRAE, and everyone is welcome. Swing by in your finest St. Paddy’s Day gear and brag about your perfect bracket (hey, we can dream!).

Next, I’m pleased to announce that University of Nebraska student Sarah Drummey has been awarded the Willis H. Carrier ASHRAE Society Scholarship this year worth $10,000. She was one of two recipients of this prestigious honor and will be presented with the award at our March meeting.

If you’ve ever thought about getting more involved with our local chapter of ASHRAE, now is a good time to jump in. We have room for more committee volunteers whose responsibilities could include anything from event planning to fundraising to working with students. Let me know if this is something you’d be interested in learning more about. The board and committee chairs meet each month during the hour before the monthly chapter meeting. It’s fulfilling work, and we always find a way to have a great time!

Finally, the 2017 Nebraska Architectural Engineering Conference (NAEC) is coming up on June 23rd. Please see Milena Palahanska-Mavrov’s statement in this newsletter for more information about submitting a conference paper. It’s a great opportunity to share and be recognized for your hard work in our industry.
