President's Message:


Dear San Jose ASHRAE Members and Friends,

I can't believe this is the last month that I will be serving you as president.  This has been such a great year for us and it is all thanks to our whole team.  All of our committee members and board members worked so hard to deliver an outstanding program for 2017-2018. 

I started being involved in ASHRAE at Cal Poly during my junior year in college.  Due to the educational and social support of ASHRAE, I wanted to give back to the society if I got a career in HVAC.  I ended up getting into HVAC as my second job out of college and immediately joined ASHRAE.  I have been involved in the BOG the last 4 years and will be forever grateful for this experience and opportunity.  I have gained many incredible friendships and learned so much from all of our members.  

One June 14, we will be having our past presidents and officer installation night at the Capital Club in downtown San Jose.  All past presidents will get their registration covered.  Spouses and guests are also welcome to this event.  You can sign up at sjashrae.org.  We will be announcing the below 2018-2019 BOG at this event:

Chapter President: Bill Schoening

Vice President/President Elect: Richard Lam

Treasurer: Elise Kiland

Secretary: Cinthya Mendez

BOG #1: David Hodson

BOG #2: Rob Potter

I wish the 2018-2019 board success in the new year and I am looking forward to see what they will accomplish.

We will be hosting a golf tournament on July 23 at the Boulder Ridge Golf Club.  The registration is now open on our website.  This tournament is at the same golf course as our tournament back in 2015 for the CRC.  Light breakfast, lunch, drinks on the course and happy hour h'orderves will be included with registration.  This event will help us raise money for our chapter operations, scholarships, and resource promotion.  I hope to see you there!

In closing, I would like to thank our chapter members and committee chairs for supporting me through my ASHRAE career.  I will continue to pay back to our future leaders so that they can have the same experience that I did.
