ASHRAE Winter Meeting-Dallas Region VI Dinner

During ASHRAE Winter Meeting Dallas, Region VI will be having a dinner on Sunday, January 27th at 6:30 at Sol Irlande’s Mexican Grill. All ASHRAE members are welcome, so we would like to extend an invitation out to your chapter membership, inviting them to join us. An invitation is available from the link at the bottom of this post.

We are joining the Region V for this dinner to get greater value of the dinner. The Assistant Regional Chair from Region V negotiated a set fee of $35 for the meal (excluding alcohol) to allow it to be cost effective and a great Texas experience.
