A MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

February 2020

 

The President’s Message

By:  Steve McConnell 

I hope your year is off to a great start. There is a lot going on within our industry and the Arkansas ASHRAE Chapter.

 

Due to the ASHRAE Winter Conference and AHR Expo in Orlando (February 1 – 5, 2020), our chapter meeting will be held on the second Wednesday this month, February 12th. Jim Bradford, a 40-year industry veteran from NW Arkansas will be our speaker.He will be presenting several relevant design and product application challenges within our industry.See the speaker spotlight within the newsletter for more details.Please RSVP for lunch. We look forward to seeing you there.

 

February is a big month for our chapter in serving students. Over the years, our Chapter has had to privilege to support our student chapters and their respective advisors in various ways to help them attend the Winter Conference and AHR Expo. We were able to do that again this year as well with Arkansas Tech and Arkansas State University.Thanks to Fallon Lee and Daniel Nehus, our Student Activities Chair and Co-chair, respectively, for coordinating that effort. Josh Faulkner, our Government Affairs Chair, has worked with Governor Asa Hutchinson’s office to obtain a proclamation for E-week, February 16-21st. We have a special opportunity to promote and introduce engineering to students in our community that week. You can do that a number of different ways. If you have children in a K-12 school, you can arrange to speak to one of their classes. I have done this several times personally over the years and have enjoyed presenting an overview of the type of engineering we have the privilege of doing in this industry, answer their questions, and sometimes conduct an engineering related educational activity. It is extremely rewarding and gives the next generation a glimpse into our industry. You also can reach out to Fallon or Daniel and they can help you get signed up to speak at a local school during E-week or another time that works with your schedule.
