Presidential Message

Alamo ASHRAE,

I wanted to take this opportunity to update the Chapter on what is happening with our annual golf tournament. Our golf tournament is one of two major events that the Chapter hosts; the other being the Skeet Shoot that occurs in the fall. The purpose of these events is to help provide critical funds to support the National ASHRAE Society Research Promotion (RP) charged with developing technology, standards and practices, and advocacy of our trade. All Chapters across the country contribute to this important effort.

With the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic and the general “stay at home” order, we cannot, in confidence, proceed with confirming a date for our tournament. There are many unknowns in what the near future holds with respect to this virus and its social effect. What is most important is the safety of our families and ourselves. As a result, unfortunately, my Board of Governors and I have decided to cancel the golf tournament this year.

I want to personally thank all the organizations and individuals who made generous contributions through our sponsorship program. I realize that one of the values of sponsorship had some assignment to the golf tournament, such as team entrance fees, signage, etc. We will be reaching out to all contributors personally to discuss a possible partial refund of their sponsorship due to not realizing all the benefits advertised. I want to make sure that no contributor feels that their donation was not reciprocally beneficial.

Thanks,

Frank L Painter, P.E.

On Thursday 3/7/19 the Alamo ASHRAE chapter sponsored STEM night at Helotes Elementary.  There were over 100 students and parents in attendance.  There were seven activities for the students to participated in, build a catapult, marshmallow shooters, Magnet madness, Straw airplanes, balancing robots, Coding, and building a parachute.  We had several volunteers at each station thanks to volunteers from the ALAMO chapter as well UTSA’s student chapter.  The event was quite the success and we had several raving reviews.  Thanks to all that volunteered and all the helped to make the event a success.
