President's Message:

Dear ASHRAE Members,

Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to serve as President of the San Jose Chapter of ASHRAE. I am honored and extremely grateful! I would also like to thank the rest of the volunteers that serve with me, without all of you this Chapter would fail.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the Saratoga Country Club on September 20th for our upcoming September Social. This event has always been a great way to start off the year!

Currently we are working on the program for this year, and if you have any technical topics you’d like us to include please let us know. Feel free to reach out to me, Richard Lam, or David Hodson with any program recommendations.

Also, we are always looking to involve more volunteers in our Chapter operations. If you are interested, please reach out to anyone of our team members.

Our current ASHRAE Society President, Sheila Hayter, has declared “Building Our New Energy Future” as this year’s theme. “We are at the front end of a major evolutionary change in how energy systems interact,” said Hayter. “Instead of individual systems—buildings, utilities, the transportation sector, and the industry sector—it’s becoming one system, and buildings are going to play a central role in that new paradigm. Buildings will be where energy is generated, stored, and commandeered, and we will be optimizing energy flow in a different way.”

This year Society has set an ambitious RP goal of $11,000 for our Chapter. We need your help to achieve this goal, please help ASHRAE fund Education & ALI, Endowed Research through ASHRAE Foundation, YEA programs, ASHRAE Scholarships, and the General/Unrestricted fund. Research, the backbone of ASHRAE, remains the primary fund of the program with over $2 million raised for this program annually. Donations can be made on our website under the Donate tab, any help is greatly appreciated!

Thank you again, and I look forward to another great ASHRAE year!
