A Message from the President!

Hello everyone and thank you for visiting the Houston ASHRAE web site.  I sincerely hope that you will not only join our local chapter this year, but that you will also take the opportunity get intimately involved.  Like a lot of things in life, you get out of them what you put into them.  You involvement will help to grow our chapter as well as make us an influential organization that will make our community a better place to live.  If that was not enough, it is also the best place to be when it comes to networking within our industry. 

The Houston ASHRAE chapter has had a very long and influential history.  We would like you to be part of that lineage, and an integral part of our success in the future.  Our programs, fund raising and special events distinguish from other chapter in our region.  I consider it an honor and a privilege to be able to serve all of you this year.  My hope is to grow our organization, and to personally get to know each and every one of you, and with your help bring the Golden Gavel Award back to Houston.  My email address is michael@lashleyinc.com if you would ever like to talk with me about opportunities within ASHRAE.  Feel free to also send your questions and comments to info@ashraehouston.org

Our Research Promotion efforts have always been the shining star among our colleagues in Region VIII, and with your help I know we will be able to continue that tradition.  We have events like Sporting Clays, Top Golf, and of course our annual Spring Gold Tournament to help us achieve our goal.  With the dynamic crew of volunteers we compiled this year, and with your participation, I’m sure we will be able to exceed our goals.  I sincerely hope you will consider making an individual contributions, or establish an endowment in your name that will live on.  I would be happy to talk with you about them. 

My primary goal this year is to get more consulting engineers involved once again with the chapter.  We miss having all of you at our meetings and special events and hope to see you more often.  I plan is to be able to swing by and visit with all of you this year and to encourage you, and your colleagues, to get more involved as an individual and as a company.  To help facilitate and promote that ideal, we have established a special Express Membership opportunity just for you!!  If you are a local member we have a rate of only $100 for seven meetings (see the green button on www.ashraehouston.org).  I know we all get busy sometimes and can’t make the meetings on a regular basis.  However, even if you miss a couple of meetings it is still a great deal, and in addition you will not need to stand in any long lines to sign in.  Just grab your badge and start networking.  We are doing everything we can to encourage you to become part of the ASHRAE team, so come and be part of making us a winning team.  I will look forward to seeing all of you, and getting to know each of you throughout the year.  I am here to serve the chapter, so please do not hesitate to contact myself, or anyone on the ASHRAE Board, if we may be of assistance.
