April President’s Message

Hello Fellow ASHRAE members!

Our next meeting is coming up real quick! We have only a few meetings left to the 2016-17 year. But don’t think we are done yet!

The next couple months have a lot of great ASHRAE activities in store. Be sure to attend the CRC technical sessions and trade show, the HVAC Design I & II sessions, the Golf tournament and mentoring opportunities. Our event calendar is packed with wonderful opportunities to learn, network and inspire.

A bit of news:

  • As I had mentioned at our March meeting, we lost a colleague and friend in Jim Harrison’s passing on March 10th.
  • Puget Sound ASHRAE is bringing the HVAC Design I & II training sessions to Washington! On the week of June 11-17, we will cover the topics of HVAC design and Applications. The courses are described as:

HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials provides intensive, practical training ideal for recent technical or engineering school graduates, engineers new to the HVAC field, those who need a refresher in new technologies, and facility managers, sales representatives and others who want to gain a better understanding of HVAC fundamentals, equipment and systems.

HVAC Design Level II – Applications provides instruction in HVAC system design for experienced HVAC engineers and those who have completed the HVAC Design: Level I – Essentials. The training covers the technical aspects of design and allows participants an opportunity to expand their exposure to HVAC systems applications to increase energy savings and improve indoor environmental quality.

Join us next week at Motif as we bring in a distinguished lecturer. We are going to discuss Transforming Older Buildings into High Performance Buildings with James Newman, ASHRAE Life member and Distinguished Lecturer.
