President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great holiday season filled with quality family and  friend time. The last couple weeks have given me a moment  to refresh and reflect. I went back to my folks’ farm in Harlan, IA, for a couple days to celebrate Christmas with my immediate family. As I get older, I value these family get-togethers and memories more every year.

Speaking of family, our YEA committee has planned a kid-friendly event at the Kids Activity Center at Mahoney State Park for Thursday, February 16th from 5-7 pm. Bring your significant other and/or kids to enjoy ice skating and other indoor activities.  The cost is incredibly reasonable: $5 entry to the park, $2/person for Jungle Gym access, and $3/person for ice skate rental. It should be a great time, and we’d love to see you there!

January is a busy month for ASHRAE, as the 2017 ASHRAE Winter Meeting is coming up later this month in Las Vegas, NV. The conference will be held January 28 – February 1 at Caesar’s Palace Hotel. This event is predicted to be the largest AHR Expo outside of Chicago and possibly the largest ASHRAE meeting ever!

Note that any attending Nebraska Chapter members are encouraged to attend the Region IX regional dinner on January 29th at 7:30 pm at Carmine’s in the Forum Shops (attached to Caesar’s Palace). Everyone in the region is invited! The cost is $25 per person and FREE for students. To RSVP, please email Blake Ellis at Additionally, see the following link for Winter Meeting registration information:  

I’m looking forward to a fun and productive year for our chapter! Know that the Board has multiple social events, fundraisers, and philanthropic activities in the pipeline for this spring. Until then, we’ll see you January 10th at Anthony’s Steakhouse for our monthly meeting.
