Letter From the President

Hello everyone;

I want to first think everyone for making this a great ASHRAE year, I have really enjoyed being the president. Our May meeting will sadly be the last of the ASHRAE year. We will have our Past President’s Night in June, which everyone is invited to. It is a really great event and I hope you all can come. Our next meeting will be in August; the new president, Saul, will be running that meeting. I wish him the best of luck in the year to come.

Thanks again to everyone who attended the luncheons and many events that we had this year.

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. 



Van Cashen, 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.
