President's Report


Welcome back, and Happy New Year Alamo ASHRAE.

Did any of our members by chance make their new year’s resolution to get more involved with their local ASHRAE chapter??? 

Do you live in San Antonio or immediate surrounding area, and work in the HVAC&R industry? Are you passionate about the built environment and engineering based on latest codes and best practices? Are you a young engineer looking to grow your network and knowledge? Do you enjoy giving back to your community and promoting engineering profession? 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, look no further than Alamo ASHRAE.  We have multiple opportunities to serve, network, and promote HVAC&R Engineering. Our local chapter is currently without a Chapter Secretary & Chapter Treasurer. Both officer positions are critical to ensuring smooth chapter operations into the future. Without new volunteers the Alamo chapter stands a chance of folding up operations in the coming years. It is important that our chapter membership is aware, and perhaps compelled to become active members. 

Okay, Okay…maybe there were no ASHRAE resolutions out there. But, hopefully everyone had the opportunity to reflect and recharge their batteries, and has hit the ground running in 2018. The chapter volunteers have been busy working and planning on the next few months.

I’d like to highlight a few upcoming events happening in early part of this year:

Chapter Meeting- January 16, 2018

Our meeting today has been canceled due to inclement weather.

YEA Rampage Hockey Night & Refrigeration Tour- January 19, 2018

This year’s Young Engineer’s in ASHRAE Hockey Night and AT&T Center refrigeration tour is being co-promoted along with the local UTSA American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). The event is open to all ASHRAE chapter and student chapter members, along with their guest. Tickets can be purchased by contacting Chanson Douglas: 210-444-5099
