Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,
Thank you to everyone who attended the February meeting at the new Binghamton University
Pharmacy Building. It was great to see all of the students in attendance. Thank you to
Jason Gilbert with BU and Mike Eckhardt with McFarland Johnson for presenting. A special
thanks to Jason for another fantastic rendition of ‘ASHRAE Jeopardy’.
A couple of reminders for upcoming chapter meetings and events:
• Canstruction Event held March 17-24 at the Oakdale mall. 100% of monetary and food
donations from the event will go towards the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and CHOW’s
hunger-relief work in Broome County. We are still looking for volunteers to help design and
construct the structure of the 17th.
• 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.
• 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.
I mentioned this last month but, chapter member Eric LePore has received a first place
ASHRAE Technology Award. The award recognizes outstanding achievements by ASHRAE members
who have successfully applied innovative building designs. Their designs incorporate ASHRAE
standards for effective energy management and indoor air quality and serve to communicate
innovative systems design. Winning projects are selected from entries earning regional
awards. The award is for the design of the Koffman Southern Tier Incubator in Binghamton,
N.Y. Eric will be presented with a plaque at the March meeting.
