President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

I am hoping you all are enjoying the start to the change in seasons here in the Midwest. As much as I enjoy the fall and look forward to the fall sporting season, I can’t personally say I look forward to winter. Here’s hoping it’s mild and there is no major snow fall till February! One thing I know we all look forward to in the fall is the 2017 Trap Shoot scheduled for October 26 at the Papillion Gun Club. Online registration is open. Preregistration and prepayment is greatly appreciated. Proceeds for the Trap Shoot are designated for the ASHRAE Student Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded in the spring.

Thanks to all who attended the Omaha meeting on Indoor Air Quality with Sarah Poursharafeddin (correctly spelled) and the Lincoln Section meeting on Thermal Imaging with Doug Hampton. Awesome presentations by Sarah and Doug. We had great attendance at both meetings. Our team is very interested in your feedback on our meetings (Topics, Food, Location, ETC). If you could please fill out the Program Evaluations after the meetings we would appreciate it. Our board of governors and each of the chairs is dedicated to bringing value to your Nebraska ASHRAE meetings and ASHRAE Membership.  I’m personally committed to read all the comments.

One more congratulations to our 2016-17 Ray Dunbar Volunteer of the Year Eric Granzow of SES Engineering. Eric has, and continues to have, a great impact on our chapter not only in his service as our webmaster, but in his knowledge of chapter operations. Thank You again for your service to the Nebraska Chapter!

Our next Chapter meeting in Omaha is October 10 at Anthony’s Steakhouse. The Lincoln Section will be Wednesday October 11 at Valentino’s. I look forward to seeing you there.
