President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

I can hardly believe how quickly the year has passed, but this will be my last President’s Message.  I’d like to formally thank everyone for an amazing year, especially the large group of volunteers in Omaha and Lincoln who have led the efforts of our hard-working committees and planned all of our wonderful events. I’m so honored to have served with this amazing group of generous and dedicated people, and I look forward to the future of our Nebraska Chapter.

Next, I am pleased to extend a congratulations to chapter member James Carlson who will be awarded with a Distinguished Service Award by the ASHRAE Member’s Council at Society’s Annual Conference in Long Beach, California. This award recognizes ASHRAE members who have served the Society faithfully and with distinction on committees or have otherwise given freely of their time and talent on behalf of the Society. Congrats, James!

Another award announcement this month is for our ASHRAE Student Scholarship recipients. We wish them the best of luck with their continued studies!
