In This Issue
On May 15, our chapter is holding a very special
event for all members. Current ASHRAE society
president, Tom Watson, plans to visit our chapter to
share his vision for ASHRAE and some of his global
presidential experiences. Tom is a member of our ASHRAE
region (Region 3) and is a Virginia native. Our chapter
is fortunate to have both in-going and out-going
society president visit it in one year, with Dr.
William Bahnfleth in November and Tom Watson this
month. Please join me in welcoming Tom to our chapter
by attending the event and sharing some of your ASHRAE
questions and insight. Later this month, on Friday May
31st, we will be having our annual family night event
at a York Revolution baseball game! Please mark this
date on your calendar and bring your family to see the
Revolution play the Long Island Ducks. The evening’s
promotion will be "Back to the Future Night" featuring
a "modern" 2013 York White Roses Cap Giveaway to the
first 2,000 fans – so plan to arrive early!
Lastly, this month I would encourage you to vote
“yes” for next year's chapter officer ballot. As we
look to the future of ASHRAE’s board, I would like to
pause and recognize the board who served this year. Our
board of governors is made up of committed, hard
working individuals whom volunteer countless hours and
put in maximum effort to make our chapter better for
all members. David Bender, Mike Conchilla, David Hebel,
Zach Hawk, Patrick Marks, Phil Groff, Andrew Barnes,
Andrew Odell, Mark Tome, Thomas Long, and Mark Graybill
have all made a positive impact to our chapter over
this past year and it was an honor and privilege to
serve alongside of each and every one of them! If you
have an opportunity next time you see any of them,
please shake their hand and thank them for their
service. Our ASHRAE chapter has a bright future due to
our outstanding leadership team. Bravo!
