President’s Message

Here is wishing you all the best this spring and a March Madness bracket that is not as broken as mine. I am also glad I don’t have to write about how bitter cold it is here anymore. Quick question – how many straight months have I mentioned how cold it is around here? First person with the correct answer wins a free candy bar at the next monthly meeting.

I hope many of you are able to attend the ASHRAE CEU day coming up on April 18th. This is a great opportunity to get 8 CEUs at a low cost from a couple of excellent speakers. Our planning team, Tom Lewis and Abby Brophy, has put a lot of effort into making this a cost effective day and I want to thank them for their hard work!

That same evening we are hosting the Roast of Tim Wentz. When you think about how much of an impact a person can have on a group of people, Tim Wentz is one of the first people that comes to mind. He is someone whom I have had the great pleasure of observing for many years. I encourage you to attend this event to honor everything Tim has done for ASHRAE at both a Chapter and Society level. It’s not often someone with this level of influence is a part of our Chapter.

As we start to wind down the ASHRAE year, there are a couple reminders I want to make. 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 18-20th 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.
