Letter From the President
Welcome back from the most wonderful time of the year, everyone!
Our meeting this month is at the same time and place with a special, esoteric topic: Psychrometrics! Sure, “everyone knows” Psychrometrics since we’re all experts, but if you’re like me you could always use a refresher since you’ll never know them as well as you did while studying for the PE exam. So please join me in the joy of reinforcing those neural pathways.
Have you registered for the CRC yet? It’s a great opportunity to meet other HVAC&R professionals in our region, attend technical sessions, and get some beach time. As your faithful chapter president, I took it upon myself to visit Cancun earlier this month to make sure it’s safe and worth visiting for you so please don’t let my trip be in vain, register today!
We have some volunteering opportunities coming up, as well as Day on the Hill in the State Capitol, a golf tournament, and a clay shoot to boot, stay tuned for updates!
Saul Martinez, P.E.,
ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Saul Martinez
- President-Elect – Allen Grammer
- Secretary – Scott West
- Treasurer – Jeremy Snyder
- RP Chairperson – Van Cashen
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.
