President's Message

We had a fantastic topic with Chris McDonald as a Distinguished ASHRAE Lecturer discussing Documentation Management and Discovery. This presentation explained what you should and should not be stating in emails and correspondence, and how to address these items if they are in writing.
REMINDER: Our golf event is this Friday April 24th with a 7:30 am shotgun start. See the ASHRAE Tucson website for the latest information on the event. The event is at the Forty Niner Country Club again this year.
OUR NEXT LUNCHEON LECTURE IS COMING UP QUICKLY ON MONDAY MAY 4TH: We have the honor of having our Distinguished Lecturer and National ASHRAE President Tom Phoenix coming to visit our chapter and discuss “People, Passion and Performance”.  Tom's presentation will be on his ASHRAE presidential theme for his term:

“Thanks to our more than 50,000 members around the globe, ASHRAE is building a worldwide best practices network of innovative people and successful technologies to serve the built environment community. Our membership also has great passion – I see that in how much time and dedication our people give to helping write standards, develop research, guide in policy and procedure, etc. Together, our people plus their passion ensure performance – whether that’s improving the performance of our great Society or improving the performance of building stock around the world.  Our people, our passion and our performance will take ASHRAE to the next level.”
