Letter From the President
Thank you everyone for attending last month’s luncheon. I enjoyed listening to and learning from our speakers’ experiences and I hope you did too. Last week we had our YEA event at Summit Climbing and Yoga and it was a great time, although physically challenging.
This month we are lucky enough to have ASHRAE Society President Sheila Hayter visit our chapter and present to us on Integrating Renewable Energy Systems into Buildings. I had the pleasure of listening to Sheila speak at last year’s CRC in San Antonio and I am excited to have her come speak to our chapter.
Speaking of CRC, it is about a month away and I encourage you to attend for the technical sessions, the community/networking, and maybe the beach, if you’re into that. We also have a community service event at the end of this month, the Cowtown Great American Cleanup. Registration info coming soon.
The spring golf tournament is coming up on March 25th at Sky Creek Ranch, it should be perfect golf weather by then!
If you would like to get involved in a committee next year or have any comments or suggestions please let me or any chapter officer or committee chair know.
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.
