I would first like to take the time to formally introduce myself. My name is Jason Filler and I am proud to be the new ASHRAE Northeast Chapter Membership Promotion Committee Chair. I have only been a member of ASHRAE for a short time; however, I have seen firsthand the immense benefits of being part of such a great community. The network of industry experts, informative monthly meetings, and overall knowledge I have gained from being a member; make me excited to share our organization and strengthen our Northeast Chapter’s membership.
I plan to utilize my 6 years of local experience and networking in service and sales to not only increase membership but also enhance current membership. I look forward to working with all of you to grow our chapter through membership engagement, requesting and applying member feedback, tracking of membership renewals and upgrades, recruitment, networking, and hosting great events.
Lastly, we will be working on numerous events and outings for our chapter next year. Beyond the usual monthly meetings, we will be doing regular outings and events to further encourage member engagement. Some of these events will include trivia nights, happy hours and networking events. We will also make it a focus to recognize our lifetime members and their contributions to their fields.

Spring is almost upon us! After a bitter winter, it’s refreshing to think that we are in the midst of starting up chiller plants for the summer months. Our officers and BOG have also been working diligently on “starting up” some new programs and initiatives for the Chapter.
Matt Morgan has been working in conjunction with the Student Activities Chair, Dave Ricci, to re-establish a student chapter at Union College. A Dutchmen himself, Matt saw an opportunity to expand our local ASHRAE footprint and offer undergraduate students at Union a firsthand glimpse into our industry through the creation of the student chapter. Matt is new to the BOG this year in the role of Secretary and has sought to volunteer to better the chapter however he can. Thank you, Matt, for all that you have done and continue to do!
