President's Message

Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

Thank you to everyone who attended the March meeting at the Cornell University Hydroelectric Plant. A special thanks to our speaker and tour guide, Frank Perry, who gave a great overview of the plant and its history dating back to the early days of Cornell. As always, the Statler provided a great meal, which was needed after all the walking that we did!

A couple of reminders for upcoming chapter meetings and events:
    • The Spring Symposium will be April 16th at the Holiday Inn Arena Hotel in downtown Binghamton. Devin Shapley is organizing the event and can answer any specific questions.t and booking the speakers.
    • The last official chapter meeting will be at Ommegang Brewery on May 21st. The chapter will be providing a bus as part of the registration fee. The meeting is being sponsored by Meier Supply.
    • Year End Golf Outing and Clam Bake will be held on June 18th. Please let Travis Fisher or I know if you are interested in donating door prizes or being involved in organizing.

As the chapter year starts to draw to a close, please consider becoming involved with the chapter for next year. Our ASHRAE calendar year starts in July. Kyle Nedlik is the President-Elect and I know that he will be looking for help during his presidency. Becoming involved in the local chapter is a great way to network with engineers/contractors/owners/reps who you may do business with over the course of your career. Please feel free to reach out to Kyle or me with any interest or questions.
