Another New ASHRAE Year in Central Oklahoma

President’s Message

By: Joe Sanders

September 8th marked the start of our chapter’s year with pristine weather conditions for our annual golf tournament.  The team, fielded by PVI, walked away with first place, Chris Dolan won the closest to the pin challenge, and Juergen Daniel took home the prize for the long drive.  Overall, the tournament was a great success.  I want to thank all that participated, especially those who sponsored the event.  This year R.B. Akins provided the platinum level sponsorship, while EEI, ABS, Matherly Mechanical, and CEC were our gold level sponsors.  In addition to their gold sponsorship, ABS also provided a Barbeque dinner for all the golfers.  The golf tournament is our largest single fundraiser each year.  Every dollar of profit is reinvested back into our industry thru research and scholarships. 

For the past 12 years that I have been involved in ASHRAE, Bryan Garcia has volunteered his time each year to putting on our tournament. During those years, Bryan has also served as treasurer, secretary, president-elect, and president of our chapter.  Without volunteers like Bryan, our chapter would be not successful.  We have a great base of leaders within our chapter, but we need more volunteers and new ideas.

In last month’s newsletter, historian Alan Loeffler wrote a profile on past-president David Royal. David was quoted in the article as being concerned for our chapter’s leadership pipeline.  At this time, we do not have a president-elect identified for next year; normally this would have been addressed several months ago.  While we believe that a couple of members have been identified who would accept the role, it is still troubling that our “pipeline” is so dry that it has taken this long to find a volunteer.  If you have ever had any interest in becoming more involved in ASHRAE at any level, please speak up.  We need your help to ensure that our chapter continues a long tradition of being one of the top preforming chapters in our region.  Volunteers can contact me at jsanders@rbakins.com  .

I look forward to seeing everyone on October 1st at our first chapter meeting.  Make sure and read Michael Wilson’s CTTC article about our guest speaker Secretary of Energy and Environment Michael Teague.  Secretary Teague’s department will have a direct impact on the future of our industry and this is our opportunity to get insight on what is ahead for our state’s energy policy.  I hope to see you all there.
