President's Report

Greetings! I hope everyone is off to a good start in 2018. Our chapter had a very busy and productive first half of the 2017-2018 ASHRAE year, and we are already in full swing into the second half of the year, having completed a January joint chapter meeting with ASPE, as well as a January YEA cornhole tournament at Cabrillo Heights Park (won by arguably the greatest cornhole team ever assembled: ASHRAE SD Treasurer Logan Dorrell and yours truly ????).


We have a busy couple of months coming up on our ASHRAE calendar, so be sure to save these dates:


One final announcement to make:

Last year, we had a presentation by Society DL (now Vice President) Dr. Julia Keen, where she referenced the ASHRAE Code of Ethics. Many were not aware that ASHRAE had published an ethics code, so here is a link for your reference: Please take a moment to review the list, and remember in addition to applying these ethics to your daily engineering line of work, it is also imperative that we honor this code at all ASHRAE business, networking and social events. As members of a professional society, it is an important standard for us to adhere to at all times, but especially in today’s climate it is important now more than ever.


Thank you for reading and also for being the best part of ASHRAE San Diego, and I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming events!
