Now that everyone is back from the Chicago Winter Conference and the holidays behind us, we have a busy next two months with several chapter functions scheduled.

On March 5th, we have a very exciting technical session scheduled on “Capacity Control for Compressors” presented by Mr. Phil Hickman of Copeland Emerson Products. March is Student Night, so please consider sponsoring a student so we can help offset their complimentary dinner registration.

From a social standpoint, WiA (Women in ASHRAE)has a Maverick’s tour and game scheduled for February 23rd. The tour will start at 4:30 pm and the game at 7:05 pm. As always, we close the chapter year with our 42nd annual golf tournament on May the 11th.

The Chapter would like to congratulate Dr. Naim Azer and Dr. Richard B. Hayter for being honored with the Distinguished Fifty-Year Member Award, and Dr. Julia Keen who received the E.K. Campbell Award of Merit. Presentation will take place at the Society’s annual conference in Houston, Texas on Saturday, June 23, 2018.

There may still be some lingering snow around, and temperatures are slow to rise, but spring appears to  be in the air, and the days are slowly getting longer. These are sure signs winter is coming to an end and acts as subtle signals the current Chapter year will begin to draw to a close.

Thank you
Kevin Morris
Chapter President
