President's Message:

 I am writing you from sunny Orlando at the ASHRAE Winter meeting.  It is 77°F here today while it is only 20°F back in Omaha and we are definitely enjoying the great weather.  Your Nebraska Chapter is well represented here at both the grassroots and technical committees.  I have met at least 15 other Nebraska Chapter members plus others attending the AHR Expo.  I would like to congratulate Sarah Toy on attending as the Region IX LeaDRS candidate.   She has been selected to represent the entire region and shadow our DRC, Trent Hunt.

Speaking of DRC, it was announced during the Presidents Luncheon that the next Regional IX DRC will be our own, Tyler Glesne.  Congratulations to Tyler on being selected as our next regional leader, we appreciate his dedicated service to ASHRAE!

Also a big thanks to Tyler for organizing the first ever MEGA Regional Dinner.  We were able to watch the Super Bowl with many fans from both Kansas City and San Francisco.  Let’s just say the Chief Fans had a little more fun with a fourth quarter comeback!

We will continue our strong programs this month with a joint meeting with ASPE at the Omaha meeting.  Please see the details further down in the newsletter on our presentations on Document Management and Electronic Communication: Litigation Implications and Building Envelope Solutions.

We do have a couple other events coming up.  The Government Affairs Committee has established a Government Outreach day on February 20, in Lincoln.  Please reach out to Peter Koneck-Wilwerding if you are interested in joining us as a volunteer.  We also will be hosting Devin Abellon for our second annual CEU/Trivia Events.  These will be on February 19 and 20 in Omaha and Lincoln respectively.  Please check out the additional information in the Newsletter and Chapter website.

One last event coming up in the next Month is the annual Nebraska Architectural Engineering Conference (NAEC) on March 5th.  This year the conference will be hosted at the Scott Conference Center and includes 12 technical sessions on different building system technologies and applications related to existing buildings.
