The Oklahoma Regional Future City competition was held on the OCCC campus Saturday, January 23rd. Fourteen teams from area schools displayed their entries and presented their projects to teams of judges. This year's theme was "Waste Not, Want Not" The winning team was from St. Philip Neri Catholic School with their city "Moscovia". They narrowly beat out Irving Middle School's (Norman, OK) entry "New Norman" which placed second in the competition. Here are some of the other entries from the competition:






President’s Message

By: John Semtner

Many of our members are returning from whirlwind trips to the Winter Conference this week. Not only did we have a positive member turnout, but we had students from OU & OSU attend. Once again it was a great conference where knowledge is learned, connections are made, and memories are had. Those are the reasons we are an organization and why I am so proud to be part of ASHRAE.

We are coming up on a few more trips and many events. In late April we will head to our Region VIII CRC in Tyler, TX. I encourage everyone to plan to attend and make reservations soon. More information to come. We will be hosting the CRC in 2017 and we want to welcome all the chapters at this year’s CRC. It is a great time to learn more about the organization and learn about some great technical opportunities.

Early in April we will travel to Stillwater for our tour of the OSU steam and chilled water plant before it is replaced. Next month we will hold our first ever sporting clay event in Guthrie. I hope everyone can join and will sponsor to raise money for Research Promotion. Contact Chris Dolan if you would like to attend or sponsor. Late this month there are some HVAC basics courses in Houston, society is putting on. I encourage anyone with new hires to take a look into this.

We have lots more coming in the months ahead, from our regular meetings, to YEA events, to sustainability
volunteering, to student outreach. Please reach out to committee chairs if you would like to be involved or have an idea to make ASHRAE a better organization.
