October President’s Message

Welcome to Autumn Fellow Puget Sound ASHRAE Members!

This year is off to a great start! We have a lot of activities planned and I hope you will find one that brings you the most benefit.

We kicked off this year with a great presentation from Facebook about their data center designs and lessons-learned. We enjoyed beautiful views of Lake Union from their Seattle office. About 70 Puget Sound ASHRAE members met with close to 100 IEEE members to see Facebook’s presentations.

The Puget Sound Section of YEA also kicked off their year with happy hour at Hargis on September 25th

Our events calendar has all the dates and topics for the chapter meetings this year. Be sure to add the dates to your calendars for the meetings that you want to attend. Lock in a discounted meeting price now by purchasing a discount block, 8 Meetings for the price of 7 ($315, a 12.5% savings!).

All this has been made possible from volunteers, like yourself, that are inspired to make ASHRAE a source for connections and information related to the HVAC and Refrigeration industry.

My hope is that this year will prove the value of your ASHRAE membership. So please join me on October 12th at Motif as we discuss the Internet of Things.
