Welcome to ASHRAE Arkansas

The President's Message: April 2016
By Forrest Moseley

Spring is here which means we are nearing the end of our 2015-2016 Arkansas ASHRAE year, but not before a handful of important events take place.  The ASHRAE Webcast, Chapters Regional Conference (CRC), Spring Golf Tournament, and Past Presidents Night / Arkansas ASHRAE Hall of Fame are our last events coming up this month and the beginning of May.

A big thanks to Harrison Energy Partners for hosting this year’s ASHRAE Webinar at their office. This year’s webinar is “Making Net Zero Net Positive: Solving the efficiency & Cost Paradox”. This will be held on April 21, 2016 over lunch. Please look for further information in this newsletter.  

This year’s CRC is being held in Tyler, TX on April 28-30th. Your group of leadership is currently working on our Chapter Reports and business meeting presentations. Your officers and committee chairs have been working hard all year to build up to this event where we share our Chapter successes with other chapters in our region.

Due to conflicting dates surrounding CRC this year, we have decided to change the date of our Spring Golf Tournament. It will be held on Monday May 9, in lieu of the original date of April 25. See the revised flyer and registration sheet in this newsletter.

April will be our last regular meeting followed by our Past Presidents Night / Arkansas ASHRAE Hall of Fame in May. This gathering in May is a very special event to honor all of our Arkansas Past Presidents as well as induct another deserving Chapter Member into the Arkansas ASHRAE Hall of Fame. This event is open to all members and is not just for Past Presidents and Hall of Fame members. If you have never attended, I strongly encourage you to consider joining us on May 12, 2016 at the Country Club of Little Rock. This social event is open to you and your significant other. Our 2016 inductee will be announced at our April meeting.

Last month our nominating committee presented the 2016-2017 leadership nominees as follows: Mark Eley (President), Max Good (President Elect), Ron McCarty (Treasurer), Secretary (Steve McConnell), Kim Koch (Board of Governors (BOG)), Bill Simpson (BOG), and Brad Bradshaw (BOG). At our April meeting we will have a Chapter vote to make these nominees your official leadership group for next year. 

This month’s meeting theme is Sustainability and what better program to have than on ASHRAE 189.1 with Distinguished Lecturer Thomas Lawrence, PhD. This will be a joint meeting with AIA and USGBC. Be sure to RSVP for this program!
