President's Welcome

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

This year one of our focus areas is growing our Nebraska Chapter membership and how we can best serve our current membership. A strong and growing membership is a key to the success of our chapter. This year our membership chairmen are Chris Hawk,, and Philip Prest, These two gentlemen have some good ideas on how the Nebraska ASHRAE Chapter can serve our membership. Chris and Philip will be splitting up the membership chair responsibilities between focusing on retaining our existing members and recruiting new members. Ensuring our current membership feel they are benefiting from their investment in ASHRAE and are maintaining their member status is just as important to our chapter as recruiting new members.

We encourage existing ASHRAE members to serve as mentors to new members. Additionally we encourage existing ASHRAE members to reach out to their professional colleagues, associates and friends to encourage joining ASHRAE. In fact, last year we established a rule where guests are provided with a free meal for attending a meeting. So, please use this promotion to help grow our membership.

As always our chapter welcomes suggestions and input from our membership on how we can continue to improve our Nebraska Chapter. Please feel free to contact any of our committee chairs, myself, or any of our board members throughout the year with comments or questions.
