What a way to start the first two days of April!!  The CNY ASHRAE Chapter hosted the first ever SmartStart Weekend for Mechanical Engineering students at the Syracuse University Center of Excellence and the event couldn’t have been any better.  I’d personally like to extend a very special thanks to Enrica Galasso (Student Activities Chair) and Matt Clark (Young Engineers in ASHRAE Chair) for spearheading this remarkable weekend and there is no doubt this event wouldn’t have happened had it not been for their extreme dedication and organization.  We were honored to host not one, but two ASHRAE Society Distinguished Lecturers for this event as Society Past-President David Underwood and his wife Jane joined us for the entire weekend (my wife Linda and I had the honor of joining them for dinner at the SmartStart Dinner in Armory Square) followed by Jorge Hernadez mesmerizing the students during Day 2 of the program.  Please read more about this incredible weekend in the upcoming April newsletter and Enrica and Matt will provide a brief summary at the April 12 Chapter Dinner Meeting.

Speaking of the April meeting, we have a packed agenda:

  • Please help us welcome Mr. Bill Pearson of Special Pathogens Laboratory as he discusses ASHRAE Standard 188 Legionella for the Main Program (1 PDH credit).  This topical discussion is relevant for all who design, manage or maintain Healthcare and Higher Education facilities. 
  • In addition, we’ll be honoring Mr. Chris Martin as this year’s recipient of the Member Recognition Award for his continued service to ASHRAE and our CNY Chapter.
  • The newly proposed Board of Governors and Officers for the 2017-2018 Chapter Year is noted in the newsletter and we welcome your comments.  As is customary, the BoG and Officers Slate will be inducted at the final May 10th  Chapter Dinner Meeting.
  • Please thank Geoff Sincavage and Johnson Controls Inc. as this month’s sponsors of the ever popular Social Happy Hour from 5:30 – 7:00pm.  The beer is FREE and the conversation is too.

Key note:  Given our heavy meeting agenda, we plan to forgo this month’s Technical Session presentation but will resume again at the final May 10th Chapter Dinner Meeting.

Thank you as always and we look forward to you,.. “being in the room”.

CNY ASHRAE Chapter President
