Welcome to the 2017-2018 ASHRAE year! We have had some great success in growing our chapter the past few years and I’m looking forward to what the next year will bring. I want to thank our past chapter presidents Aaron Morris and Michael Brubaker for their hard work, dedication and the momentum they have created , increasing membership and involvement within the chapter. They did a great job laying the groundwork to grow the Pikes Peak Chapter, and we are excited for the future.
In the first part of August I attended the Region IX’s Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) in Kansas City. This was an awesome event and a great way to meet the talented, diverse people who are dedicated to promoting their chapter and our industry as a whole. I enjoyed seeing how other chapters have had success and I left with a better idea of all the working parts in the ASHRAE community. The Pikes Peak Chapter is looking forward to hosting the 2020 Region IX CRC in Colorado Springs, and having the opportunity to show off our chapter and our community.
One of my goals as President is to lay the foundation for a successful CRC by focusing on early involvement and generating enthusiasm for 2020. I am also focused on continuing to build chapter membership and increase our Research Promotion goals. These goals are not achieved solely by an individual, but a combined effort of dedicated individuals willing to donate their time to the success of our chapter.
We are always looking for members who want to be more involved and connected to the ASHRAE community. If you have any interest please feel free to reach out to me or one of the committee chairs listed below.
