President’s Message

By: Trapper Wilson

Spring is always exciting when it comes to ASHRAE. The weather is turning, a little early this year, and we always have some great events lined up. We have a couple of Sustainability / Community Service events planned for March and April. First, we will be cleaning up around the Boat House on March 11th. We’ve worked with the Boathouse Foundation before and this is a great opportunity to get involved downtown and help beautify OKC. After a morning of cleanup, we will get together and do some rafting in the afternoon at OKC Riversports! Next, we will partner with Rebuilding Together once again to help re-paint and clean up the home of someone in need. This will event will be held April 8th. You can get more detail from Brian Sauer

We had a great turn out for the February meeting. Thank you to everyone who attended! CLEAResult talked with us about utility distribution and the Demand Side Management (DSM) programs that are offered by OG&E. Our March meeting features Lt. Governor Todd Lamb. Lt. Governor Lamb is going to discuss the Future of the State, which should be of interest to all members.

We are now less than 8 weeks away from the ASHRAE Region VIII CRC. As you are probably aware by now, Central OK ASHRAE is hosting the CRC this year. Many people have been hard at work for over a year planning this event. We’ll have ASHRAE Chapter members from all over our region visiting OKC April 27th thru April 29th. This will be a busy weekend in downtown OKC, which is great because we will be showcasing our great City. Please register at the link listed below. If you plan to stay downtown at the Skirvin Hotel make your reservations ASAP!!!
