Hello all Pikes Peak ASHRAE members,
Welcome to the 2015-2016 ASHRAE year! I hope you had a great summer and are gearing up for another great year. I would first like to thank our outgoing President, Ashley Davis, for her dedication and commitment. She did a great job leading our Chapter last year and is continuing to lend her support as the co-chair for the Government Grassroots Activities Committee.
At the end of July I attended the Region IX Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) in Black Hills, South Dakota. The Black Hills Chapter put on a great conference, and I think everyone came away with a renewed sense of pride in ASHRAE and also had a lot fun. This was the first CRC I have attended and I personally learned a lot about how ASHRAE operates and ways to help our Chapter be successful. If you have never been to a CRC before, I would highly recommend attending at least once. Attending a CRC is a great way to learn about the inner workings of ASHRAE and interact with members from other Chapters in our Region.
One of my goals this year is to promote increased membership and to encourage members to be more involved. Volunteering is at the heart of ASHRAE and without our volunteers nothing could get done. If you, or someone you know, would like to volunteer in a Chapter Committee or as a Chapter Officer please let me know and I will get you more information. I would also like to encourage all of our members to invite one non-member during the year to attend a monthly lunch meeting. This is a great way to demonstrate the value of ASHRAE and encourage people to become members.
