Welcome to Arkansas ASHRAE
The President's Message: November 2014
By Terry Jacks

Well, we are two meetings into the Fall ASHRAE schedule, and we're already off to a fast start. Following up the kickoff meeting in September, the Central Chapter toured Diamond Bear's new brewing facility in North Little Rock last month. The attendance exceeded expectations with 57 total attendees. The success for this meeting should be credited directly to the hard work and preparation of CTTC Chair Forrest Moseley. He's provided two great meetings so far, and I know November's meeting will be no different.

The Arkansas Chapter has a long-standing record of being able to schedule society presidents and distinguished lecturers to speak to the chapter membership, and this year is no different. On November 5th, our guest speaker will be ASHRAE Society President Tom Phoenix, P.E. President Phoenix was present at CRC in April and obviously couldn't wait to get back to Arkansas to speak to us again. On February 4th, we will feature Distinguished Lecturer Robert Baker. Also, because Mr. Baker's topic is approved for both AIA and GBCI CE credit, the Central Chapter will be hosting the local chapters of AIA and USGBC in a joint meeting. Please be sure that these dates are on your calendar, because these men will have plenty on knowledge to share during their presentations to the chapter.

We had another very successful Fall Golf Tournament on Friday, October 3rd. I know Social Chair Tony Demarco put a lot of work into making these tournaments both fun for all attendees and beneficial to the chapter, so please be sure to thank him for all he does for ASHRAE. Also, thank you to each of the individual and company sponsors who help us raise money for ASHRAE each year.

I want to highlight the Student Activities Chair Zac Buckmiller and the smoked pork butt fundraiser he has organized. Zac organized a student presence at each of the past two ASHRAE Winter Conferences, and he is trying to make this year the biggest attendance yet. This is where you as a chapter member can help his efforts, because he needs our help to make that goal happen! Please take some time to check out the flyer attached to this newsletter, and help us send students to Winter Conference. Zac has made the Arkansas Chapter very proud due to his diligence and hard work in Student Activities.

Finally, please make sure you check out the chapter website at Electronic Communications Chair Steve McConnell and volunteer webmaster Alex Swindler are constantly updating it with relevant information for the chapter membership.

I am looking forward to seeing each of you at the November ASHRAE Meeting!
