President's Report

President’s Report 

Greetings Alamo ASHRAE,

The days are slowly getting longer and warmer, FIESTA is over, and summer is right around the corner. May is here, and there is much to share.

We welcomed the other chapters from Region VIII, with members represented from Central Oklahoma all the way to Mexico City. The Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) rotates annually, and is hosted by our chapter every 15 years. The event was a huge undertaking, and a big thank you goes out to Fred Gleeson for organizing and executing the CRC.

This month we will resume our monthly lunch time chapter meetings on the 3rd Tuesday at the Hilton Double Tree. This month’s May 15th speaker will be Julian deBullet- ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer. Julian’s presentation will cover Variable Flow Chiller Plant Design. Please register in advance to avoid last minute meeting disruptions and higher priced entry fees.

Next month’s June 19th Ethics Meeting – TBPE presentation will be the last for the 2017-2018 ASHRAE year. We will not have a chapter meeting in July, but will be working in the background planning for next year.

Next year’s Alamo Chapter Officers and Committee Chairs will be meeting to plan for the 2018-2019 year. The names of proposed Officers and Committee Chairs are provided in this month’s newsletter for review. Familiarize yourself with the new chapter leadership, and if you’d like to get involved with the chapter operations please reach out. If you have any suggestions for chapter meeting topics, presenters, chapter events, or other feedback please contact one of our volunteers.

Lastly, the ASHRAE Summer meeting will be held just down the road in Houston, TX. June 24th – June 27th. More details can be found in the newsletter on how to register and scheduling. Please read on for more information on the Summer Meeting, and other upcoming ASHRAE happenings.

 

Best Regards,

Chris Delgado, PE
