      As we put the holiday season behind us, and welcome a new calendar year, we are almost at the halfway point in our ASHRAE-LI “year”. While we have gotten off to a good start, with several informative meeting presentations, as well as the social aspects of the December Holiday Party and the Membership Promotion/YEA event at the Oyster Bay Brewery, the remaining six months of our ASHRAE “season” will be packed with
more informative meeting presentations (we will have two ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturers this year - March and May), a viewing of the ASHRAE Webcast (“Using Analytics to Drive Building Design) on April 20th, and our Annual Field Trip on April 11th. On the fun side of the ledger, our YEA chair, Elizabeth Jedrlinic is putting together a Go-Kart Event in February, which promises to be interesting and fun. While we still haven’t really had too much of a winter yet, it’s never too early to start thinking about the annual Chapter Golf Outing (May 8th) and the Chapter Fishing Trip, to be scheduled in June.
      In addition to all of the above, the CRC Committee members are hard at work planning for the August CRC, which will be hosted by our Chapter this year. Please let Rich Halley know if you can spare some time prior to or during the CRC to help out. All of the above would not be possible without the dedication of the Chapter Board of Governors and Committee Chairs, who expend the effort to provide our members with a full schedule of technical and social events. While we have filled up all of the presentation slots for this year, if you would like to make a future presentation, now is the time to line up the schedule for next year. Finally, for those members who will be venturing to Las Vegas in January for the ASHRAE Winter Conference (and AHR Expo), please make sure to let the Chapter officers know so the Chapter can get the proper credit for member attendance.
