President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

I hope everyone had a great Holiday Season and New Year! I’m excited about the meetings and events coming up in 2018. Past Society President, Tim Wentz, will be our featured speaker in January on ASHRAE 20/20. Tim is always a great presenter and I am sure we will get a few insights thanks to his time as ASHRAE Society President. Please join us for lunch in Omaha or Lincoln for a great presentation.

Our YEA Team has put together another great family-friendly event at the Mahoney State Park on February 15th from 5:00 – 7:00 PM. NE YEA will be sponsoring pizza. See page 4 for more details. Bring your significant other and/or kids to enjoy ice skating and other activities. It will be a great time, and we would love to see you there!

January is a busy month for ASHRAE as the Winter Conference and AHRA EXPO will be held January 20 – 24th at The Palmer House in Chicago. Any Nebraska Chapter members are encouraged to attend the Region IX regional dinner. We will send out the details once the information is available. Everyone in the Region is invited. Additionally see this link for the Winter Meeting registration information:

In Nebraska we are also celebrating Women in ASHRAE in January. Please encourage your female colleagues to accompany you to the January meetings in Omaha and Lincoln!  Additionally, our chapter business will be revolving around the nomination of a new board member for the upcoming 2018-19 year. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else, please notify a board member as soon as possible. 

I’m looking forward to a fun and productive 2018 for our chapter. We have multiple events (social, fundraisers, and philanthropic) planned for the upcoming months. As always, we appreciate your support. Until January 9th at Anthony’s (Omaha) and January 10th at Valentino’s (Lincoln), Cheers!
