President's Message

BuzzHello <<First Name>>!

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving, I think I am still in a Tryptophan daze! We had another great turnout at our November lunch meeting. Big thanks to Henny van Lambalgen for discussing with us the topic of Energy Simulations and LEED. I also want to thank Patrick O'Leary and Reba Schaber, as well as everyone else for bearing with us while we stumbled through the first half of the presentation. Hopefully there won't be another I-10 shut-down for our December meeting!

It's time already to start thinking about the 2011 Golf Tournament! See below for more information and contact Charlie Velasquez with any questions.

Our meeting topic this month will be on AZ Conservation & Energy Efficiency Programs, with our speaker being from Southwest Gas. To see the full list of upcoming lunch meeting topics, visit our website at

I'm very much looking forward to seeing everyone at the December meeting!


December Lunch Meeting

  • Topic: AZ Conservation & Energy Efficiency Programs
  • Date: Thursday, December 9th
  • Time: 12:00 noon - 1:30pm
  • Location: Old Pueblo Grille (NE corner of Broadway/Alvernon)

2011 Golf Tournament

GolfWe are looking for sponsors, players, and prizes for our 2011 golf tournament. Though the tournament has raised a lot of money for scholarships over the years you may not realize the different needs of the Tucson HVAC community that have also been funded through the golf tournaments. Proceeds from the 2010 Golf Tournament funded the $6,000 needed to teach the 2010 spring semester HVAC course at the U of A.

With this year's tournament we are aiming to fund student scholarships and ASHRAE Research Promotions. If you are interested in participating as a player or sponsor please fill out and return the golf tournament registration form. As you'll see on the registration form there are already sponsors signed up for the tournament. Sponsoring early lets everyone see that you are sponsoring throughout the year instead of only the month or two prior to the tournament.
