Dear Members and Friends,

Internal transitions and canceled Chapter Meetings have resulted in a slow start to this year’s agenda. Luckily, The Chapter’s BOG is strong, and has a line-up of Chapter Events, Learning, and Social Opportunities to ensure Cincinnati ASHRAE sees a strong finish through 2023! Please See below for all that’s happening over the next few months, and what our Members have been up to.

2021 Region V ASHRAE Chapters Regional Conference (CRC) – Ft. Wayne, IN

By Joe Nader Cincinnati Chapter Historian (Retired)

Every year during late summer Region V holds its Chapter Regional Conference (CRC). The CRC is hosted each year by one of the region’s chapters. The event was held July 28th, 29th, and 30th in Ft. Wayne, Indiana and was hosted by the Ft. Wayne Chapter.

Matt Klok was the CRC general chairman and he and his committee members did a great job from start to finish. The conference started with Thursday afternoon activities July 28th follow by initial meetings and a welcome reception on Thursday evening.

Friday was a full day of business meetings, President’s Lunch, technical sessions and an evening of fun and comradery at the Botanical Conservatory near the hotel.

Saturday continued with committee workshops, business meetings and the Award’s Lunch. The Cincinnati Chapter was represented by a few of our membership and the Chapter received the following honors and awards: Research Promotion (RP) goal, High Five and Challenge goal were accepted by President Nick Brown. Plan now to attend next year’s CRC in Akron, Ohio which will be hosted by the Akron Chapter. Dates TBD but probably last full weekend in July.
