2018-19 President's Message
By: Paul Kenna

Welcome to the ASHRAE 2018/19 program year!  Our first meeting is the annual clambake, scheduled for Monday, September 17, beginning at 5 pm at the Burgundy Basin Inn.  It begins as a social event with food and refreshments, as well as a fun opportunity to test drive an electric vehicle!  The main program will follow, with Rochester EV Accelerator presenting, “Electric Vehicles for Widespread Adoption in Rochester”.

The Rochester Chapter offices and committee chairs attended a planning meeting on August 8th, to review the monthly meeting calendar and special events, as well as to discuss the many committee activities slated for the year.  Thanks for Tom Streber, our President Elect and Program Chair, the program scheduling is well under way, but any topics you have for consideration would be welcome.  Please reach out to Tom at tstreber@jwswanson.com

By the me this is published, I and other members of the Rochester Chapter will have attended the ASHRAE Region 1 centralized regional conference (CRC) in Jersey City, NJ August 16th-18th.  The conference brings together all 15 chapters in our region for input into ASHRAE operations, training in the various committee leadership roles, as well as to network with other chapters.  Next month’s newsletter will report any pertinent items discussed at the regional and society level of ASHARE.

Please check out our website at hp://rochester.ashraechapters.org/ or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ashraerochester/ 

Hope to see you all at the clambake in September.  As always, please invite a friend or colleague.

Paul Kenna, PE 2018-2019 President Rochester Chapter
