President's Message

Dear Nebraska ASHRAE Members,

We all know that there is nothing more guaranteed in financing that taxes and inflation. We are finally giving in to increasing our meeting meal prices so we can break even for our meeting costs. We have been putting this off for a number of years and at least three price increases by Anthony’s. We hope that the quality of the food and meeting space is well worth a couple extra bucks! We have also added another health-conscious menu option that will keep your meal budget and pant size the same. 

I am also very glad to announce that we raised $3500 from our first Annual Nebraska ASHRAE Trap shoot event alone! My esteemed appreciation to Jake and Chuck Kopocis with Control Services for orchestrating this event and Kyle Heberly with Mech Sales for all the good food and drink. Another thank you to all the sponsors and supporters that helped make this event such a great success. 

With our enrollment in the UNO endowment fund, we only pay out around $2250 for our four $1000 scholarships (the remaining money being the interest from the fund). With the success of our scholarship events this year and in years past, we have decided to increase the scholarships to $1,250 each for the upcoming year

This month’s meeting topic is Construction Law and Contract Language and a joint meeting with MCA in Omaha. I can assume that most of us have been a victim to vague language, unclear specifications, and the use of ‘red flag’ words in construction documents. I find this topic invaluable for the success of a project and hope you find it helpful as well.
