Thermal Briefs - January 2018



Hello {cbtag:firstname|info:receiver}!

Happy New Year ASHRAE Northeast!!

As we move forward in 2018, we will continue our transition away from Google Groups. Starting with this issue, we will no longer be sending a PDF issue of the newsletter through Google Groups, but rather a link to the newsletter that is hosted on our website. Please be sure to visit our website and register in order to stay up to date with the latest communications and information from the Northeast Chapter of ASHRAE.

President's Message - January 2018

Greetings ASHRAE!

Welcome to 2018! Tis the season for new resolutions and new beginnings! In the spirit of said season, I’d like to make a resolution on behalf of the chapter: to formally cease our usage of the Google Group and instead use the new website as our communication conduit.

That’s right, as of February 28, we will no longer use the Google Group. All announcements will be made via our new website: if you sign up, you’ll receive our newsletter and other announcements. Head here to register:

This is a much needed move, and we’ve already received great feedback. After spending some time with the site, if you find that you have suggestions, please send them our way. A special thanks goes to Todd Turcotte for making this transition possible – thanks Todd!

We also plan on having a YEA event every month until May. January 22nd, we’ll enjoy a few rounds of bowling (you should consider going, if only to see VP Kevin Houghtaling wreak havoc on some pins). Keep your eyes peeled for a registration invitation.

If you have suggestions for any event that you’d like to see happen this year, feel free to send me a message: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Thank you,

Adam Feather
2017-2018 President
Northeast Chapter
