President’s Message

By: Trapper Wilson

It’s time to kick off another ASHRAE year in Central Oklahoma!  I have been preparing for my year of service as ASHRAE Central OK President this summer and reflecting on my experiences in this organization.  I joined Central OK ASHRAE in 2003.  At that time there was an incredible amount of experience and tenure within the membership relative to the YEA crowd.  As John Semtner has stated before, we were fortunate to serve with some of the “giants” in ASHRAE like Bob Vermillion, Tino Mendez, Harry Roundtree, John Harrod, and several others.  We’re fortunate to still have some of that experience around today.  Tino and John regularly attend Board of Governor meetings and Chapter meetings, and both are invaluable advisors to our Chapter.  For me, one of the most exciting things about Central OK ASHRAE is the commitment from our younger members.  There is enthusiasm and energy at our meetings and social events that is encouraging and fun to be around.  In recent years we have had so many people step up and fill some big shoes to maintain Central OK ASHRAE as one of the top Chapters in the Country.  Everyone involved makes a difference.  So be proud Central OK, you make this Chapter great!

This is a big year for Central OK.  It is our year to host the Region VIII CRC, which will take place April 27th – 29th.  This is going to be a great opportunity to show Region VIII why OKC is a great place to live and work.  The CRC committee has been meeting for almost a year now, and preparations are well under way.  Thank you to past Presidents Joe Sanders and John Semtner for taking on this event, along with many others who are doing double duty between Chapter and CRC responsibilities.  Listed here is the CRC website so please sign up! http://ashraecok.org/CRC2017

My goals for the year are to increase general membership participation, continue to innovate and expand our Research Promotion efforts, and support the preparations for a successful CRC.  All of these things have something in common…YOU!  I’m hopeful you will take some time this year to volunteer your time, donate to RP, or in some way support the Chapter.  If everyone could just commit ONE thing the impact would be tremendous.

Our DRC (Director and Regional Chair) has challenged all Chapter Presidents in Region VIII to “Leave the Chapter better than you found it.”  Coming off such a successful couple of years I have to admit I’m feeling the pressure to leave this Chapter better than I found it.  We’ve got such a great Chapter it’s hard to imagine what we can improve on.  However, with the team of people who have volunteered to serve, I’m confident we will make an impact and bring more value to the Membership.  Thank you to everyone who sacrifices your time to volunteer for Central OK ASHRAE.  I’m looking forward to serving all of you.
