Our annual chapter
golf outing was held on July 20th at Armitage Golf
Course. To "beat the heat", we held the outing in the
morning. Together, our chapter raised approximately
$6,600 for ASHRAE Research! I would like to extend a
special thank you to all our corporate sponsors and the
90+ golfers who participated. We would not have had a
successful outing without all of you. Thank you also to
Glen DiEsposti and the rest of the golf outing
committee for your time and dedication to a great
This year's meetings will be held at a new location!

||Data Centers - HVAC design: a ground up fundamental design
guide high density applications, and new cooling approaches.
Presented by Nicholas D. Babiak of TSS, LLC
As the cost of providing energy
increases, analysts predict that energy costs for data centers have the
potential to equal their capital costs within five years. According to
the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), data center energy
consumption doubled between the years 2000 and 2005 and showed
continued growth throughout the recession and into 2011.
To improve data center operational
efficiencies and reduce operational expenditure, data center HVAC
design innovation is becoming increasingly important.
The presentation will cover
fundamental design of data center HVAC systems including, optimizing
HVAC unit location, "Hot Aisle/Cold Aisle" design configuration, and
It will also cover current industry
trends such as high density applications and new cooling approaches.
Finally we will touch on LEED and
data center design standards. This is changing for 2012 and cooling
tower water management will potentially play an integral role in the

Member and Local News
The local Future City Region is looking for volunteers interested in
joining their Steering Committee. Unfamiliar with Future City? Future
City is a competition for local school students, grades 6 through 8.
The event gives students an opportunity to create their vision of the
future through the design of a city. Each team creates their city on
computers using the SimCity software, and builds a three-dimensional,
tabletop model to scale. The teams present their design at the
competition before a panel of engineer judges. Each team also submits a
Research Essay on a provided topic -- this year's topic deals with
stormwater. If you are willing to help as we prepare for the next
competition to be help in January, 2013 or are interested in mentoring
students or judging, please contact Steve Roman at email@example.com.
Have information to share? New hires, promotions, retirements, etc.
Put it in the Pennant!
