Welcome back, ASHRAE Central Florida!

After an excellent year with much success, I’m happy to be back & excited to be your Programs Chair.  Let’s get this year started off right, shall we?

As I hope you’ve heard, our first meeting of the year is scheduled for Thursday, September 8th at the usual time and place.  Our speaker is Society President Ron Jarnagin presenting his theme for this year, Sustaining ASHRAE Through Leadership.  I’ve had the privilege of hearing the presidential messages from ASHRAE Society Presidents for several years in a row now and I can assure you that Ron’s presentation is not your typical presidential message.  Ron’s theme is very focused on our membership – but I won’t spoil it for you.  Come out and see for yourself!

When you register online for the meeting (www.ashrae-cfl.org) you’ll see PayPal links for ASHRAE Season Tickets on the page too.  As always, we are offering all eight meetings this year for the price of seven.  You also have the option of paying for the Shrimp Boil with your Season Ticket this year.  If you have any questions about the Season Tickets, please don’t hesitate to contact me (mtosh@stanweaver.com).  It’s a great way to save on dinner meeting costs for companies that regularly have engineers attending!

Also during our September meeting we’ll be recognizing the achievements of some of our outstanding chapter members.  We have Design Competition winners (Go Knights!!), a scholarship recipient, Technology Award winners and some of the Best Chapter Chairs in Region XII right here in Central Florida.  There is certainly a lot to celebrate!

I look forward to seeing you all at our September meeting!
