    2016-2017 Fort Worth
    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

We are off to another great year in the Fort Worth Chapter of ASHRAE. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer and staying cool during these extremely hot days.

Come and cool off at the next monthly luncheon on August 17, meet the new Board for this year, and enjoy a great speaker-- Charles “Charlie” Waddell, President and CEO of Global Plasma Solutions. Charlie will be covering a unique topic: Needlepoint Cold Plasma Technology Applied to ASHRAE 62 IAQ for OA Reduction. It should be very informative.

We recently took a survey of 100 engineers prior to this meeting to get ideas of what topics you would like to see covered this year. We will be including many new directions that will encompass a more diversified view of our industry.  Stay tuned, it will get exciting! We have a great Board and enthusiastic Committee Chairs to make this a successful year.


I look forward to working with everyone within our Chapter this year to make it a year to remember. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you and hope to see you at the luncheon!


Best regards,
Patty Parrish, President
ASHRAE Fort Worth

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.
