Where has the summer gone?!? Kids are going back to school and it’s definitely time to get the MN AHSRAE Chapter year going. As president of the Chapter, I have to say I’m humbled by the foundation that has been laid by the past-presidents and committee members. We are very fortunate to have strong membership base supporting our chapter.

We are starting our fiscal year with a kick-off meeting on September 13th which will be held at HGA (7:00AM-9:00AM). If you haven’t registered please do so via the Meetings link on our Chapter website so we can plan accordingly (breakfast will be provided).

I want to make mention of another important event that is fast approaching; Heart and Hammers. As ASHRAE members, we understand the importance of giving back and supporting our local communities. This is a co-sponsored event with ASPE which involves minor home improvement for deserving senior and disabled homeowners. The event is September 17th and typically concludes around 1:00PM.

Speaking of school starting…I just received an email from Society announcing the ASHRAE Scholarships for 2017-2018. If you have family, friends, co-workers looking for financial assistance, please inform them of ASHRAE scholarships. There are 33 scholarships available! Society is accepting applications for the following two scholarships: 11 regional/chapter and university specific scholarships $3,000-$5,000 each and 13 undergraduate engineer scholarships $3,000 to $10,000 each. Get your applications in NOW! Apply at www.ashrae.org/scholarships.

Thanks in advance to all the Board members and committee members for volunteering to support the MN Chapter! I look forward to a very successful 2016-2017 program year.
