Letter From the President

Hello everyone;

I hope y’all are enjoying this cold weather! We’ve had some great meetings so far this year, thanks to everyone for attending and making the luncheons so successful. We have a great program scheduled for January, more information is provided in the newsletter, I hope everyone can attend. We also have several events coming up in the spring months, take a look in the newsletter or on our social media pages to find out more information.

If you have any projects around the area that you would like to feature in the newsletter, please reach out to us so we can get them included. If you are a student member with our chapter and would like your resume included at the end of the newsletter, please send it to us and we will get it included in the next issue. Thanks everyone for being part of our Chapter, and I hope we have a productive and educational year this year.

As a reminder, there will be no December meeting this year, see you on January 17!.

ASHRAE Activities

We’ve gotten a good head start planning some early ASHRAE activities. This fall we plan to meet in conjunction with the NTAEE Chapter at TCU Amon Carter Stadium, in addition we will enjoy a Refrigeration Tour at a local brewery. Watch for upcoming golf tournaments benefitting Research Promotion.

Get Involved

This year, we are trying to schedule events that will allow the membership to get more out of being a member of the Fort Worth Chapter than a PDH for attendance at a lunch meeting. We will be hosting happy hours after the meetings every month and sponsorship opportunities will be available. We are also trying to expand the involvement outside of the core group of people who have volunteered their time over the past few years. Let us know if you are interesting in volunteering for a position in the Chapter.
