The President's Corner

Steve Simpson

I am pleased to kick off the 2015-2016 year. Thank you for your continued support of ASHRAE. We are part of a 53,000 strong international membership, and I know we will continue our local growth this year.

We are hosting a YEA and Membership promotion night on Wednesday November 4th at The Banks. A separate sign up flyer will follow. On behalf of the board, I invite all members to attend this social event. Please recall that our yearly social events allow members to network with peers while helping to support ASHRAE research.

We thank Dan Daly as he finished his presidential role in July. During Dan’s year we had many successes. Our monthly meeting attendance is growing, our RP goals were exceeded, and we received good feedback on the various meeting topics. We seek for each monthly topic to be of technical value to benefit our local membership whether they are Engineers, Owners, or Contractors. Please work to invite someone new this year or a previous member who has sat out for a few years. And when you see a new face at a meeting, introduce yourself and thank them for attending. I will work to do the same.

Thank you to everyone who was a part of our 2014-2015 Research Promotion campaign. Last year’s amount was our highest in 5 years at $10,725!!!
Along with reaching our goal and a high five, we established our first ASHRAE endowment fund as a Chapter. Our event in March along with private donations helped raise $3000 to establish our Bahnfleth Presidential Endowment. If you would still like to donate to the endowment, just contact Joe and he will be more than happy to help.

I would also like to thank Pete Skelly and all those who helped with the golf outing this year.

Finally we are looking for some help this year. Are you open to getting more involved with the chapter? Then we could use you. Call Joe at 513-515-8285 and volunteer today.
