Thermos Newsletter – January 2016

Letter from the President

Welcome to the year 2016, and the midpoint of the ASHRAE season! This year, our chapter turns 99 years old, and continues a rich tradition of ASHRAE membership.

This year we’ll also be the host of the 2016 ASHRAE Annual Conference (June 25-29). This is a challenging endeavor, and I’m thankful we have a leader like Vinny Stanec to make it a success. His committee has done tremendous work thus far, but it’s not over yet.

This month’s regular meeting is our “R in Refrigeration” theme, where we host speakers focusing on refrigeration topics. Join us on January 11th, and don’t forget that we transition to evening meetings after the new year.

Finally, Society has asked that all chapters adopt a new set of bylaws. Our current bylaws were adopted in 2004, and are out of sync with national recommendations. The board will be considering the new bylaws this month and hopefully voting to accept an approved version next month.

Jim Rosick, Chapter President
