October 2015 Print

Message from the President

Autumn is a time of year where life often begins to slow down from summer activities, a time to reflect, and a time to look ahead.

For Triangle ASHRAE Autumn is a time of activity with a October 22, 2015 Golf tournament, the Cornhole Tournament scheduled October 30, 2015 at Rally Point in Cary, an ASHRAE Sustainability Project scheduled November 14, 2015 at Reality Ministries in Durham and the monthly Chapter Meetings.   Although numerous tournaments of various organizations were scheduled the last two weeks of October, thirty four golfers participated in the ASHRAE golf tournament at Lochmere in Cary on a perfect Chamber of Commerce day.  We would like to thank those who supported the tournament! 

One focus of the local chapter this year is promotion of the ASHRAE name.   For this reason we are reaching out to various organizations to educate the public on the important role ASHRAE plays in everyone's life.  This is being accomplished by communicating to governmental officials through the Governmental Advocacy Committee, being involved in the community with sustainability projects, and coordinating activities with the local AIA, USGBC, and similar groups. 

A new endeavor this year is to publicize and promote ASHRAE with local media organizations.  One way to accomplish this was to invite WRAL's Chief Meterologist Greg Fishel to speak at the November 18, 2015 Lunch Meeting on "Climate Change".  We are thankful for Greg's willingness and enthusiasm to speak with the local Chapter.  Additionally we will also be issuing press releases to local newspapers regarding the the Chapter's sustainability efforts.

We also extend an invitation to all of our members to promote ASHRAE by participating in a Chapter event and educationing your acquaintances on the important role ASHRAE has in our world today.  We thank all of our members for being a part of ASHRAE!
