President’s Message

By: Joe Sanders 

We have tried to step a bit out of the box this year when planning our chapter meetings.  Our last meeting may have been the furthest we have stepped yet when Bruce Pitts presented on ethics.   Much to our delight the turnout was high once again with about 60 members in attendance and the discussion was one of the more active that I can recall.  One of the more impressive items that stuck in my mind was how closely the state’s code of ethic mimicked ASHRAE’s code of ethics in many areas.  To me that shows that ASHRAE is much more than a technical organization, but also an organization focused on the overall personal advancement of its members.  Our society not only wants you to be well versed on the latest technologies, codes, and research but also wants us to be well versed on professional skills, such as ethics, as well.  I want to thank Mr. Pitts for taking the time to present to us and hope that we can work with his office in the future.

Our next meeting is stepping a bit back into our comfort zone.  Keith Reihl, with Mitsubishi Electric, will be presenting on the recent advancements of Variable Refrigerant Flow system  and understanding ASHRAE 15.  This meeting will be held January 7th, at 6:00 PM at 50 Penn Place. 

VRF has technology has advanced tremendously over the past decade as the concept is more widely accepted in the United States.  It’s easy to imagine that a great deal of those advancement in efficiency, control, and capacities were rooted in developments made possible by ASHRAE research.  As we near the end of the year, I urge you to consider making a tax deductible contribution to ASHRAE research so that we can ensure that our industry continues its rapid advancement.  If you have any questions, please contact our Research Promotion Chair, Adam Shupe; his contact information can be found in this newsletter.

Finally, I would like to wish our members and their families a happy holiday season and happy New Year.  I know that as we try and hit our end of year deadlines, quotas, or goals that it can be easy to forget how truly lucky we are to be where we are and to have the opportunities that we have.  Hopefully, you all can find some time to slow down and reflect on another great  year.
