Letter From the President
Well, the Texas weather never disappoints in reminding us of the old adage “If you don’t like the weather today, just wait 5 minutes and it will change”. It has been a crazy winter thus far. The wind farms must be doing well with all this wind lately.
The Day on the Hill event was very enlightening on the day to day processes of our government in Texas. I now understand why it takes so long to get things passed. But it was great working with the other 8 chapters that showed up for the event. Pictures are on our Facebook page.
I hope everyone will attend this month’s Membership Promotion Meeting. Bring a potential new member and get their lunch for free at our March 15 monthly luncheon. We will also be raffling a Yeti Cooler. Please join us for a great meeting!
There are many wonderful upcoming events to attend -- March 15th YEA Happy Hour; April 3 Spring Golf Tournament; April 19th Joint Meeting with NTAEE at TCC South Campus Energy Building; April 27-29 is the Region VIII CRC in OKC; and, May 25th is our 2nd annual Sporting Clay Shoot at Alpine Shooting Range.
ASHRAE Fort Worth
Our chapter officers this year are as follows:
- President – Patty Parrish
- President-Elect – Van Cashen
- Secretary – Saul Martinez
- Treasurer – Allen Grammer
- RP Chairman – Clif Upham
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.
