President's Welcome

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

It appears that our long lost friend winter has finally found us and coated much of our great state with several inches of snow.  Luckily, your Nebraska ASHRAE Chapter has planned programming guaranteed to bring warmth to us all.

I wanted to touch on last month’s Omaha meeting and how great it was to hear from a panel of temperature control contractors.  Obviously, this topic piqued the interest of our chapter as we had record attendance for this year. We look forward to planning future meetings with a similar panel format. Please reach out to our CTTC committee chair, Aaron Rasell, or I with topics you might be interested in learning more about.

This month in Omaha we have Andrew Thompson discussing Net Zero Energy Building Design. Andrew will present to us what is driving Net Zero Energy Buildings, describe the design process and present some lessons learned from real world experiences.

I hope our chapter members are finding our monthly technical presentations beneficial and we would appreciate suggestions on how we can continually improve our topics and presentations.  Please feel free to contact myself or Aaron Rasell,, with any suggestions.
