FROM THE PRESIDENT'S DESK
Last month, Bill Nelson presented on the US Energy Information Administration's Annual Energy Outlook for 2016. Bill helped us look into the EIA's crystal ball to see what trends we can expect in energy consumption in the upcoming decades. Among other things, I saw lots of job security for all of us! Thank you Bill.
Our November lunch meeting will feature Greg Denker. He's offered to show us what the "buzz" is all about with ASHRAE 62 and how honeybees might know more than we do. See the information and RSVP below.
I wanted to make special mention of the recent passing of Wayne Nichols. Wayne was a Tucson Chapter member, devoted employee, and above all a loyal friend. We offer our condolences to his family, and want to express that he will be missed. In reference to his days as a trucker, 'Safe travels, and clear roads' Wayne.

Careful attenuation of humidity, temperature, CO2, insulation and airflow performance are essential to short and long-term prosperity of honey bees. We will discuss the principal mechanisms by which all beehives create and maintain their indoor air quality, energy budget and hygiene.
