President’s Message

By: Trapper Wilson

We’ll kick off 2017 with a TUESDAY Chapter meeting on January 3rd, 2017.  Our presenter will be Dr. Kishor Khankari.  He will be presenting on the Application of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for Built Environments.  This should be an interesting topic on trying to predict and possibly prevent environmental issues in a building during the design phase using CFD.

The beginning of a new year is always exciting.  For me, there’s motivation to accomplish something new, or maybe finish something that I never got around to completing the previous year.  As 2017 begins, set one or two managable goals for yourself.  You can find many statistics regarding the success of people who acutally write down their goals.  One thing I’m sure we can all agree on is the fact that when you write down your goals, you will be more likely to achieve them. 

If you missed our November Spouses Night social event you missed out on a great time and a great venue.  I want to thank Jason Keyes for coordinating with Remington Park and helping to plan the event.  I also want to thank Guernsey and Darr & Collins for their generous sponsorship of the event. 

As an ASHRAE member do you realize the wealth of information you have access to?  If you haven’t explored the website in a while, you should do so.  I’ve listed a link to the education page on the ASHRAE website for your convenience.  There are many e-learning modules, and learning opportunities right here at a very reasonable “member cost.”  If you’re scrambling for PDHs, this is also a great source to check out.
