Chapter Technology Transfer and Programs

Hello friends,

As we all fill out our calendars for what is sure to be a busy time of the year, here are a few more dates to pencil in and a look at what we have ahead for the ASHRAE year.  

Next up is our annual holiday party and RP auction on December 13th at the Natural Science Center.  It looks to be a great time at a unique venue, and I look forward to seeing you all there!

January's meeting is still to be determined but has planned emphasis on Government Advocacy.  Further details to come as we get them worked out. 

ASHREAE Distinguised Lecturer Devin Abelon has been rescheduled for February 21st.  We had great registration for his (un)Ethical Engineer discussion before we had to cancel, so mark your calendars now!

Last but certainly not least, March will play host to ASHRAE Society President Sheila Hayter's visit to North Piedmont.  Stay tuned for details and info on the remaining meetings in a future newsletter!

Merry Christmas!

Rob O'Berry, VP/CTTC Chair
