President’s Message

The old saying April showers bring May flowers seems to be ringing true.  With all of this rain I have a feeling my lawn mower is going to get a good workout this spring!  

Well the May meeting will be my last as the Madison ASHRAE chapter president.  I would like to thank the Board of Governors (BOG), Committee Chairs, and Past Chapter Presidents for all of your support during the 2016-2017 year.  These are all volunteer positions and I truly appreciate everyone taking time out of their busy schedules to help make our local chapter great.  So Thank You!  

We apologize for the delay in sending out the May newsletter and chapter meeting announcement. Our originally scheduled presenter and ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer (DL), Dennis Stanke, suffered a health setback last Friday.  The good news is that Dennis seems to be doing well.  The bad news is that he is unable to travel to Madison per doctor’s orders.  We wish Dennis Stanke a speedy and full recovery.  

Our next chapter meeting will be held at Vintage Brewing Co. and the Presentation topic will be on Changing ASHRAE Standards.  Our presenter will be Jeff Boldt who is a Principal and the Director of Innovation and Quality at IMEG (formerly KJWW Engineering).  Thank you Jeff for filling in on such short notice!    

If you are interested in becoming more involved in ASHRAE we are always looking for volunteers for committee members, committee chairs, and BOG members.  Just ask a current ASHRAE BOG member for more details on how to become more involved in your local chapter. 

I look forward to seeing you all at our last chapter meeting on Monday May 8th as well as our 52nd annual Golf Outing.
