The Spring Symposium is coming up.
We will be giving speakers/attendees the option of purchasing a table in the lobby at the symposium, where they can display and sponsor their products/services for attendees to see. All of the proceeds will be going to our newly initiated “community service project”, which will be our participation in Canstruction of the Southern Tier (https://www.foodbankst.org/canstruction)
Vendor Tables can be reserved now on the Symposium Page.

Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,
Spring is almost here and even though we went through yet another snowfall there is light at the end of the tunnel; better weather is ahead of us! When I came to the country 20 years ago, I could not understand people’s obsession with the weather but quickly came to realize its importance and effects to our daily routine.
As we are preparing for spring, and gearing up for our Spring Symposium, we are also looking into becoming more involved in our community and help those in need. This year our chapter will be participating in the Canstruction of the Southern Tier, which is an international hunger-relief competition where teams compete to design and build structures made entirely out of canned food. Our current year Vice President, Kyle Nedlik, is chairing the event, as well as participating as the team captain for one of the team entries.
The canned food used in each structure will be distributed through CHOW to emergency food programs throughout Broome County including food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community meal programs. The funds raised will support both agencies’ hunger-relief efforts including the Food Bank’s BackPack Program. Winners of Canstruction of the Southern Tier will be nominated for the chance to compete on a national level. Come take peek at what Jason Gilbert has come up with for the Team Twin Tiers entry project.
Following February’s well attended meeting at Binghamton University, March’s event will be a tour of Sullivan Park Science & Technology Center in Corning, NY. This tour has been in the works for a few years now and thanks to Mike McGinnis it has finally become a reality. Due to the sensitive nature of the facility and the proprietary research taking place there, all that wish to attend the tour and presentation must sign up ahead of time and also complete Non-Disclosure Agreements prior to the event.
The forms will be made available very soon and once available we will upload to the ASHRAE Twin Tiers website as well as notify our membership via e-mail.
