2017-18 President's Message
By: Bill Clark, P.E., CEM

Welcome to another year of ASHRAE in Rochester! Our chapter has approximately 240 members that consists of engineers, manufacturers, equipment vendors, facility operators, and business owners. This creates a great mix of folks in the community to network and learn from each other.
This past summer several members of our chapter attended the ASHRAE Region I -­ Centralized Regional Conference (CRC) on Long Island.   At the conference, the Presidential theme: “Extending Our Community” put together by Society President Bjarne Olesen was presented. His message focused on three directives. First is to extend our global community. Second is to extend our technological horizons. Third is to extend our value to members. The Rochester Chapter of ASHRAE will work to support these directives this year through our chapter program and events. If you have any suggestions for how we can better serve you please us know.
During the 2017-­18 year we have Seven PDH approved Monthly Meetings and multiple YEA Sponsored Technical Sessions as well as a Clambake, Valentines Dinner Dance, Refrigeration Tour, and Picnic & Golf Outing. We welcome your feedback in regard to meetings and events throughout the year, we use this information to improve our meetings and events. After each Chapter meeting we ask that you take a few minutes and fill out the program evaluation. Suggestions for future meeting topics can be sent to Paul Kenna – President-­Elect/Program, pkenna@nrg-concepts.com.
With every great society or organization, it comes down to the people who volunteer their time and sponsors for our various events. I would like to extend my thanks to all those who participate in the operations of the Rochester Chapter and those who provide sponsorship contributions.  I personally look forward to seeing everyone at an upcoming event.
Thank you,

Bill Clark, PE, CEM
