President's Message:

It appears the changing of the seasons has made its presence known this week.  I hope everyone is enjoying the start of fall in the heartland and here is to hoping winter doesn’t try to crash the fall party too soon.  Last week we enjoyed one of the last warm days at our annual ASHRAE Trapshoot which raises funds for our ASHRAE Student Scholarships.  I want to thank everyone who helped make this another successful event, especially Kyle Heberly and Jake Kopocis.  I also enjoyed watching the new format and seeing our finals come down to guys sitting down shooting left handed to declare a winner.

I also hope you all enjoyed our presentation last month from Alex Skillman and Jessica Errett on our upcoming energy code updates.  I found it very informative and helpful. We had great attendance at both meetings.  Our team is very interested in your feedback on our meetings (Topics, Food, Locations, 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 are dedicated to bringing value to your Nebraska ASHRAE meetings and ASHRAE membership. 

Speaking of bringing value to our members, have you heard we are hosting another Continuing Education Day on November 5?  Our team has been hard at work planning another great event.  The morning session will be focused on Cyber Security which will include a keynote address over lunch.  The afternoon will focus on energy modeling and building analytics.  Please see the flyer in the Newsletter for additional information. 

Our local YEA committee hosted their first YEA event last month.  They hosted a happy hour at DJ’s Dugout.  From all accounts fun was had by everyone!  They have planned another set of technical sessions in Omaha and Lincoln for this coming year.  See the flyer later in the newsletter for more details.  No need to be YEA (under 35) to attend!
