A Message from the President!

Welcome to all of our new and prospective members!  As a chapter, we should all be proud of our accomplishments over the past several years and I am excited to lead the chapter in continuing our tradition of success with educational programs, networking opportunities, and industry certifications for our membership. We have the privilege of serving an ASHRAE chapter with members that seek involvement opportunities that improve our chapter operations each year.

We are consistently recognized for being one of the most active chapters within Region VIII of ASHRAE, and we always set a high bar within ASHRAE Society for our Research Promotion campaign.  So, THANK YOU in advance to all of our involved and charitable membership that continues to make ASHRAE Houston one of the most excellent chapters within ASHRAE.  And, of course, we want recognition for our efforts in being one of ASHRAE’s best chapters.  So, as always, our goal this year is to earn the Golden Gavel Award which is given annually to the best chapter within the region. 

For the 2014-2015 year, I would like to focus in increasing membership involvement.  We have approximately 700 members assigned to our chapter, making us one of the largest chapters within ASHRAE.  However, only a fraction of the membership regularly participates in ASHRAE Houston events.  Therefore, my task is to solicit feedback from our membership in an effort to meet the needs of more members.  That’s right - I want feedback!  Please send all inquiries to info@ashraehouston.org so that we can serve you better. 

We look forward to providing everyone with the best possible membership experience.  We sincerely thank you for your contributions and your loyalty.
