The President's Corner

Edwin Porter

Thank you to all who attended the January meeting where Hoy Bohanon, an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, presented on how to implement demand control ventilation and comply with ASHRAE standards. Mr. Bohanon provided great insight into ASHRAE Standard 62.1, and common design and control methods mistakes that are made when attempting to meet the minimum ventilation requirements of the standard.

For our February meeting, we are sticking with the theme of ASHRAE Standard 62.1, and are excited to welcome Dr. Thomas Lawrence, an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer, who will be presenting on CO2 Monitoring for Outdoor Airflow and Demand-Controlled Ventilation. This presentation will provide
a different perspective on a topic similar to the January meeting. The meeting will be held at the traditional time and location (Crowne Plaza Blue Ash, 5901 Pfeiffer Rd. Blue Ash, OH 45242) on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 with lunch starting at 11:30 AM and the discussion starting at 12:00 PM. Please register by returning the attached RSVP form to laurakamphaus@zoomtown.com or online at the following link:

I hope that all who were able to make it to the ASHRAE winter conference in Chicago had a great time! It is quite incredible that TWO members of the Cincinnati ASHRAE chapter were elevated to the grade of Fellow, and recognized at the Plenary Session at the Palmer House Hilton on Saturday, January 20th. This is an incredible accomplishment, and much deserved by both individuals. Please join me in saying
congratulations, and thank you to Fred Betz and Dr. Raj Manglik.

Please join the Cincinnati Chapter Board of Governors as we congratulate Vinny Violi on becoming the newest member of the board. Vinny is a Systems Account Manager for Trane, and is very excited to join the team.

Each month we strive to select meeting topics that are valuable and relevant to all in our local membership including engineers, contractors, owners and product reps among others. Please feel free to contact me directly with any questions, comments, concerns, or suggestions:
