Greetings from your 2018-2019 Research Promotion Chair!
So far we have kicked the new ASHRAE calendar year off to a great start! This year’s 2018-2019 Northeast Chapter goal for Research Promotion is $11,500 with a Scholarship Goal of $150. By helping our chapter reach this goal, you are helping the ASHRAE community as a whole. Research is the backbone of ASHRAE but the RP Campaign was expanded 10 years ago to also include support of Education, Endowed Research through the ASHRAE Foundation, YEA programs, ASHRAE Scholarships, etc.
At our annual golf outing this year in September, we had an amazing turn out for a great day of golf and ASHRAE support. A huge thank you to our Tee Flag sponsors – with your support we were able to put up 26 tee flags and raising around $3,094 for Research Promotion! Thank you to the following sponsors : Fusion, Eastern Heating & Cooling, R.L. Kistler, York, Trane, Victaulic, Emerson Swan, Quantum Engineering, Thermal Environment Sales, LaBella, Trojan Energy Systems Inc., TBS, Pasco, Technology Plus LLC, NorthEast HVAC Solutions, RF Peck, NESA, MEP Support Services LLC, Advanced Comfort Systems, FPI Mechanical Inc., LJ Early Company and Frank P. Langley, Co. Inc.
There were many fantastic raffle prizes as well – thank you for those who donated items! Also, with the money raised from those raffle tickets, 50/50 and mulligans, the chapter was able to raise an additional $530 towards RP!
To help continue our success in raising money towards our chapter goal, we plan on having 50/50 raffle tickets available for purchase at our upcoming lunch meetings so please be on the lookout for those as well as special events! Can’t wait for a great year!
If you ever have any questions please feel free to reach out to me or any other officers.
Thank you again for all your support!
