Greetings ASHRAE Members,
On Friday, February 18, the temperature in Lancaster reached
73°F, breaking a record set in 1938. While I am writing this
President’s message, the temperature is now in the low teens
with almost five inches of snow outside. I wish the weather
would make up its mind. If you are trying to make up your mind
about whether to join ASHRAE or to come to one of our meetings,
now is the time to make up your mind and join us!
This month is Membership Promotion night. All new members
who sign up this month can attend our March 9 chapter meeting
for FREE! This is in addition to all of the other benefits of
ASHRAE membership, including the monthly ASHRAE Journal and the
yearly ASHRAE Handbooks. Join ASHRAE in “advancing HVAC&R
to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world.”
You can sign-up for ASHRAE membership online at www.ashrae.org/join. If
you have any questions about joining, please contact me (Mark
Graybill – firstname.lastname@example.org)
or our membership promotion chair Nate Potteiger (email@example.com).
Also contact us if you would like to get involved with our
local chapter operations.
We had another well-attended meeting this past month with a
presentation entitled “The Latest in Dedicated Outdoor Air
Systems (DOAS)” presented by ASHRAE Fellow and Distinguished
Lecturer Stanley Mumma, Ph.D. I thank Dr. Mumma for speaking to
our chapter and for his knowledge and enthusiasm for DOAS.
Please join us on March 9 at the Appalachian Brewing Company
for two presentations by separate speakers but both related to
balancing. The first is on “Hydronic Balancing in a Variable
System” and the second is on “Air and Hydronic Balancing from
the Balancer’s Perspective.” I am looking forward to both of
these presentations as well as the follow-up discussion and
questions from our members.
