Hello {cbtag:firstname|info:receiver}!

Welcome everyone to October 2018 Ashrae Northeast Newsletter!

October 2018 – Newsletter Editor Message

Welcome, everyone to a new chapter year and to our monthly newsletter again. This year we will do our best to have the monthly newsletter issued on the 15th of each month. It will be sent directly to your email address (we believe in saving the earth one paper at a time). Please note that only those who are registered on our chapter website and have subscribed to our newsletter will get an email with the newsletter topics. So please make sure you are signed up and your subscription preferences are updated.

There are also opportunities to highlight yourself and your firm through our $10-per-business card ads that are published in the newsletters. The proceedings of the ads will contribute to our research promotion funding goals. In addition, we are also accepting employment ads at no charge.

We always strive to make our newsletters more than just newsletters by being informative and using them to serve our local industry. Having said that, we are always open to any ideas that will help us improve our newsletter. Please email your ideas to the editor directly or to any of the chapter officers.

President Message - October 2018

Welcome back to another ASHRAE year! I hope you all had fun-filled summers; I know its cliché, but the speed at which our summers fly by in the capital district always amazes me. This year’s Officers and Board of Governor are a diverse group of individuals who I am very excited to work with - we have new faces in the officer positions, and some returning veterans on the board and in chair positions, looking to bring you the best chapter year that we can.
