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 ( )

Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

February is here and this means that we are half way through the 2017-2018 ASHRAE season. February is also the month of National Engineers Week (February 18–24, 2018). National engineer’s week was founded in 1951 by NSPE with the goal of promoting a diverse and well-educated future engineering workforce. It does so by increasing understanding of and interest in engineering and technology careers and by raising public awareness of engineers' positive contributions to quality of life. For more information you can refer to the DiscoverE website: ( Please take the time to thank the engineer in your life, or if you’re it, just pat yourself on the back for making the world a better place!

Our January meeting found us touring the newly renovated Upson Hall and discussing the challenges and solutions that went into making the project a success. As always, Lanny Joyce, Mark Howe and the rest of Cornell’s staff were wonderful hosts.

February’s meeting and tour will be hosted by another regular contributor, Jason Gilbert, of Binghamton University. Come join us for what is slated to be another great tour, meet BU engineering students that will be attending the event and maybe help tip the scales in their career decision process. Be that positive influence and show them how wonderful it is to be thinking and dreaming HVAC all day long every day of the week.
