Yes, it is out, the 2014 Edition of our Chapter Roster. This compilation includes our chapter membership, along with listings of local consulting engineers, contractors, and equipment representatives. But wait, there is more… Our chapter history, research contracts, well, you’ll just have to read it to grasp all of its contents.
Our roster is unique among ASHRAE Chapters, and is itself a part of our Chapter’s history. This year’s edition is spiral bound to enable easier photocopying, and is packed with more information than ever before. Copies were handed out at the February meeting and will continue this Spring. One copy is available for each chapter member, and also for advertisers.
Many thanks go to Jon Driskill, who has chaired this effort. Assisting Jon was Alan Hasemeyer and probably many others. We appreciate the efforts of this important committee.
