Monthly President’s Message

By: Chris Dolan

September, 2020


Hello ASHRAEcok Family!

I would like to start by thanking the membership for this opportunity to serve as your Chapter President. Despite the pandemic, I am confident this chapter will rally for a very strong year. We will attempt to have as “normal” a year as possible while making sure we keep everyone safe.

Our first meetng will be in person at Will Rogers Theater. The checkin process will be a little different to spread people out. The food will also be served to each table instead of buffet style. The facility will require masks to enter but you are free to remove them once seated. I am excited to see as many of you as possible in October!

The theme for this year will be Member Engagement. I am a firm believer that ASHRAE not only needs to be a source of technical knowledge but also personal growth. The only way we can achieve this is by gettng the entire chapter involved in all of our actvities. We have multiple events which will give all of us the opportunity to come together and build stronger bonds. The first of which was the golf tournament. A special thanks goes out to all of the volunteers who made this the most successful golf tournament to date! Some of the other events I will encourage everyone to attend are:

Habitat For Humanity
(2) Diversity in ASHRAE events
(5) YEA events – all ages are encouraged to participate in each of these events

Sportng Clays
Poker Night
Spouses Night
Night Meeting with Happy Hour Preceding

I also want to thank each of the committee chairs who volunteered this year! I will speak for the entire Board by saying we all welcome any support you are willing to offer to any specific committee. If you would like to help, please reach out to the chair of the committee you want to participate in and ask them what they need. I look forward to a successful and FUN year!
