Letter From the President
For those of you that don’t know, my name is Van Cashen and I am the new president of the Fort Worth Chapter of ASHRAE for the 2017-2018 year.
This year we are going to try and expand our topics at the luncheon meetings, as well change up they ways in which they are presented. These changes will hopefully make the luncheons more beneficial for our membership. We are also going to plan several more events throughout the year to give more people an opportunity to get involved.
Committee chairs are forming their committees right now, so if you would like to get involved in the leadership of ASHRAE without having the full responsibility of a chair position, a committee is a great place to start. Reach out to me and I can get you in contact with the correct person.
Our first meeting is August 16th at the Petroleum club, I hope to see everyone there. I’m looking forward to serving as President this year, and having a great year in ASHRAE.
ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Van Cashen
- President-Elect – Saul Martinez
- Secretary – Allen Grammer
- Treasurer – Scott West
- RP Chairperson – Patty Parrish
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.
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.
