    ASHRAE Chapter Year
    Celebrate the year with us!

Letter From the President

Hello all;
Spring is finally here and lots of planting happening outside. Enjoy it before the heat sets in very soon. We are gearing up for our last luncheon as my year runs down at the Petroleum Club, so please join us for a good time!

This month’s speaker is Tricia Bruenn from Belimo AirControls. She is a very active member with ASHRAE society and a bright light within our Belimo family. Her topic will be: “Pressure Independent Technology and it's effects on Systems and Energy”.


There are some fun upcoming events to attend -- May 17 is our monthly luncheon and Happy Hour; May 25th is the 2nd annual Sporting Clay Shoot at Alpine Shooting Range; and, June 21 is our Past President's Event at Top Golf.


Thanks to all that attended the CRC in Oklahoma City. Many of us enjoyed a really good time and Van got a little wet in the rapids! We even brought back a few awards for our chapter.

Sean is working on our upcoming Top Golf event for our Past President’s Night at the brand new location in downtown Fort Worth. Please sign up for a great time and fun with friends!

If you are interested in getting involved and contributing to make our chapter the best in the US, come join us!



Patty Parrish, President
ASHRAE Fort Worth




Chapter Officers

Our chapter officers this year are as follows:

  • President – Patty Parrish
  • President-Elect – Van Cashen
  • Secretary – Saul Martinez
  • Treasurer – Allen Grammer

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.
