Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

Following the Region 1 CRC in August, we have had a great start to the year with our September Chapter meeting, held at the Binghamton Holiday Inn. The meeting revolved around a pair of presentations regarding cooling tower basics and tower water chemical treatment. I was happy to see such a great turnout that included both familiar faces from past meetings as well as many new ones.

Thank you, Mike McGinnis, for putting together September’s program and to our presenters, Adam Keller of Pro Air Plus, and Jerry Meyer Jr. of MIS of America. It is often overlooked, but our monthly programs would not be as educational, interesting and interactive without the participation and contribution of our presenters. A good percentage of September’s attendees were Binghamton University students who experienced firsthand what ASHRAE is all about, got their feet wet in the world of HVAC, and mingled with a lot of the regular members. Thank you, Jason Gilbert, for continuing to encourage student participation.

In the month of October, we will be holding the 2017 Southern Tier Professional Development Symposium at the Binghamton Holiday Inn Arena. This annual joint event with NYSSPE, ACEC, and ASCE, will feature a wide variety of presentations and will offer the opportunity to earn up to 6.5 professional development hours. For more details on the topics and schedule, refer to our chapter website or the information enclosed within this newsletter.

ASHRAE is an organization of volunteers, both at the chapter and national level. The society is built upon the participation of people like you – students, contractors, faculty, equipment manufacturers, HVAC professionals and many others from every facet of the HVAC&R industry. Membership in our organization makes you part of this diverse network of people. In addition, you will gain access to many valuable resources such as the ASHRAE Handbook, Journal, E-newsletters, discounts on ASHRAE publications and merchandise and have an opportunity to get involved at the chapter level. Contact Chris Wolak ( if you, or someone you know, are interested in learning more about membership opportunities.

Thank you for your continued support and membership in this great organization.

Warm Regards

Petros Papathomopoulos
Twin Tiers Chapter President
