Hope you and your family had a great summer this year! Beginning 2018-19 ASHRAE year, our chapter will start off our chapter program with the Empire Brewery tour in Cazenovia, followed with dinner at the brewery.
This summer, our Chapter had our 78th annual ASHRAE Clambake at Hinerwadel’s, which brought about 1,000 local professionals in our industry together every year. Thanks to those volunteers and sponsors to continue make our very own ASHRAE Clambake a success this year!
We also had our 20th annual golf tournament at Foxfire, the weather was good and we had 20 teams. Thanks to the volunteers and sponsors as well!

Sheila J. Hayter, P.E., is ASHRAE’s President for the 2018-2019 term. She is an ASHRAE Fellow and a Distinguished Lecturer. Her theme for the Society year is “Building Our New Energy Future.” From my interaction with Sheila and other ASHRAE members, her dedication to ASHRAE and being one of the only a couple of ASHRAE female presidents has encouraged many members, especially those women engineers in our industry.
Finally, it’s an honor to serve as CNY Chapter President for 2018-2019 term for our about 250 local ASHRAE members. One of my messages as a Regional Vice Chair is “you belong here”, I cordially welcome all local professionals and students to our Chapter meetings – you contribute to our industry and share our mission, to advance the arts and sciences of HVAC&R to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world, you belong here. See you at the brewery in September!
