President's Message:


Dear San Jose ASHRAE Members and Friends,

As a reminder, the Board of Governor and officer nominations are now open and will run through April 20th.  If you would like to nominate someone, you can fill out the nomination form in this newsletter and online and return it to Richard Lam at richard@agcinc.com.  Please make sure that anyone you nominate is willing to serve for the position.

This last month, Wyatt Kennedy spoke about the technical feasibility of zero net energy building in California.  He shared a study showing different energy efficiency features and on-site renewable energy systems that can get us closer to a ZNE building.  This was a very informative topic knowing that the residential ZNE requirement is coming in 2020.  Thank you Wyatt for the great presentation! The technical meeting this month will be on April 26 at the Biltmore Hotel. Ariel Carpenter with the City of San Jose will be doing a presentation on the San Jose Energy Benchmark Policy and will be looking for feedback from our San Jose ASHRAE members.

Our annual Bocce Ball tournament is on Thursday, April 12th.  All of the teams are currently sold out but you can still attend and sign up for a dinner registration online.  We are looking for companies that can sponsor raffle prizes.  Examples of prizes are wine bottles, restaurant gift certificates, sporting game tickets, etc.  Contact Cherie Nixon if you have any questions or can sponsor a prize at cnixon@therma.com.

Later this month, YEA will be going to the Cal Poly vs Santa Clara baseball game on April 24th.  Tickets are only $11.  Register online so we can make sure everyone gets a seat next to each other.  If you have any questions, reach out to Cherie Nixon at cnixon@therma.com

Our next BOG meeting will be held on April 26th at 4:30pm at the Biltmore hotel just before the meeting.  All members are welcome to attend and we are always looking for more volunteers. 


Lauren Wilson
