    president's Message: AUGUST 2020

    President of the Central Arizona Chapter of ASHRAE
    Roger Kirkman


    Hi, Central AZ Chapter members!  Greetings from your 2020-2021 Chapter President. 

    I am sure you have heard this a hundred times over the last few months, so one more time won’t hurt--- I hope this finds you and yours safe and satisfied in this The Year of COVID-19.  Our 2019-2020 year ground to a screeching halt, keeping us from monthly meetings, our annual golf tournament, our second annual HVAC Design Seminar, and a host of YEA & WIA fun events.  But we did host the first ASHRAE virtual chapter meeting in May, and under Kellie Huff’s leadership, our Chapter finished second in annual PAOE points for Region X.  Thanks, Kellie!

    The new year will be a challenge, with all events likely to be Virtual until at least January, but let’s all hang in there and make the best of our situation.  Now’s the time to take care of some ASHRAE membership housekeeping:  Go to the ASHRAE website and update your Background Profile, apply for a Membership Upgrade if you qualify, check out the available ASHRAE SWAG, books and videos, or just learn more about ASHRAE.  Also, tell us what you like or don’t like as it relates to Virtual Events--- the more we know, the better our events can be.  Send an email to me or any Chapter Officer (an updated Roster of Officers & Committee Chairs is a click away!) and let us know what you are thinking and want to see.

    Speaking of Committees, we can always use your help and input, whether it’s for ideas on speaker topics, fun events (especially now), or how you might want to get involved in the future.  Let us know.

    Our first Chapter meeting will be on Tuesday September 1st, at noon.  We will be sending you invitation details very soon.  Be sure to register, and wear something with the ASHRAE logo on it!!

    Thank you,
    Roger Kirkman
    Central AZ Chapter President 2020-2021

    covid-19 contribution

    Our members donated $314.97 to Valleywise Health. This gift is specifically for COVID-19 Emergency Relief.

    The foundation receives allotments from the national stockpile, but since all hospitals are receiving supplies, the shipments are not enough to get them out of the “red zone” on certain items.

    The foundation will buy extra-small N95 masks, surgical and procedural masks, and medium exam gloves.

    Thank you for every individual contribution
