Welcome to ASHRAE Arkansas

The President's Message: February 2016
By Forrest Moseley

I hope everyone had a great January and beginning of the New Year! I am writing this message in the mist of our first snow storm of 2016. I hope that everyone was able to be off work and get to play a little in the snow. For those of you traveling to Orlando for the AHRI Expo and ASHRAE Winter Meeting, I hope you have safe travels.

February is a big month for Student Activities. The week of February 21-27 is DiscoverE, or formally known as National Engineers Week. Our Grassroots Government Advocacy Chair, Chance Hollingsworth, was able to have our Governor, Asa Hutchison, sign a proclamation proclaiming this week as National Engineers Week in Arkansas. Chance Hollingsworth, Josh Faulkner, Ron McCarty and I had a chance to meet the Governor and have a photo opportunity with him and the signed proclamation.

 

Our Student Activities Chair, Josh Faulkner will be setting up multiple appointments with local K-12 schools in Central Arkansas that week for our Chapter Officers and members to promote Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to students at these schools. Many of our members have already stepped up the plate and have made visits to some schools already. If you are interested in participating in this event, please let myself or Josh Faulkner know. We cannot rely on educators alone to improve student interest in STEM subjects. By having skilled volunteers (such as our ASHRAE members), we can partner with our schools to provide even further detailed knowledge about these subjects as they apply to all of our daily lives.

                Regions VIII CRC is right around the corner. This year’s CRC will be held April 28-30 in Tyler Texas, home to the East Texas Chapter.  See the flyer in this month’s newsletter for further information on event registration, social events, various activities, and hotel reservations. With Tyler being within driving distance from Little Rock, I strongly encourage not just our Chapter Officers and Chairs to attend, but also our membership as well.

In closing, I would like to remind everyone of a venue change for our February program. This will be held at Pulaski Technical College Culinary Arts Institute. We will have a program by Jim Caylor on “Ammonia Use in Refrigeration and A/C Applications” as well as a tour of the facility. Last but not least, please be sure to RSVP for this event as we will have a limited number of spots available. We will have another $50 drawing this month for all of those that RSVP early.
