President's Message

Being an active member of ASHRAE has been an extremely important part of my career development and the fact that our society has been around since 1894 as “a global society advancing human well-being through sustainable technology for the built environment,” is a mission that means a great deal (see ASHRAE Houston’s mission). It is my hope that ASHRAE’s mission will become a working part of your life also and that is why I am honored to be the President of the Houston Chapter for 2020-2021.

COVID SARS 2 and COVID 19 have become an interesting part of our “New Normal” and ASHRAE Society has quickly responded with new Committees and new research on how the built environment needs to address this new virus.  As a Chapter this year, we will bring speakers and professionals from all over the society to brief our local chapter on changes that need to be made in our design approaches and recommendations our members make to their clients.   While our first few meetings may be “zoom” meetings, we think it is important that all engineers stay current and join our local chapter to stay informed. Our local membership fee is only $50/year. 

ASHRAE Houston Chapter has many wonderful strengths, and we are gifted with outstanding officers, Board of Governors and committee chairpersons, and that is why I am positive about the upcoming year as we move forward into an exciting year.

  1. As an organization we need to grow the attendance at the chapter meetings.  We want you to attend the local, student, YEA, and Women in ASHRAE meetings.
  2. Increase our student outreach with new student chapters at all of our local colleges and universities.
  3. Raise our Research and Promotion (RP) contribution per member by $10.00 per member. Meetings are an excellent way to stay up-to-date on all of ASHRAE happenings so please plan on attending each month. The topics are always insightful and connecting to our members and fellowship is meaningful. I have found that when I invite people to our meetings, connecting them to ASHRAE’s mission helps them understand the importance. If you are excited, then our guest will be, and if our guests are excited then hopefully, they will join.

We have an award-winning newsletter to help you stay engaged, Check out our “Hot Air Recorder” each month.

I want to say we have a fantastic group of volunteers and if you are looking to join the fun, please contact me at [email protected]  and we will get you plugged in.
