Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,
It is hard to believe that this is my next to last message for the season and seems like this year has flown by. Typically, the conclusion of the Spring symposium marks the start of the countdown for our Clambake and Golf tournament in June which is the last activity in our calendar year. The clambake is scheduled for June 19 at the Links as Hiawatha Landing. Registration is open! More details are available on our website.
The Spring Symposium found us in yet another venue, due to some last minute unplanned conflicts with the booked spaces. Nevertheless, I felt that attendance was strong and the program put together by Kyle Nedlik was comprehensive and full of interesting topics. I would like to thank all presenters who generously volunteered their time and without whom we would not be able to have such an event and finally a big thank you to our table sponsors.
This year, we once again had the opportunity to award three scholarships to college students interested in pursuing a degree in the engineering fee. This is made possible each year through our H.O. Ward Scholarship fund. Congratulations to all three recipients, Tara Dulak and Brandon Link (Binghamton University) and George Pappas (University of New Haven).
We do care about your opinion, so I would welcome any comments or suggestions you may have about the venues we have used the last three years. If you can take some time out of your busy schedule, please share your thoughts with us as to what your preference would be for next year’s event. Was the DoubleTree acceptable? Should we move back to the Treadway or Holiday Inn? Is there any other comment or suggestion you have that would make the Symposium a more worthwhile event for you to attend?
You may possibly recall that our Chapter participated in the Canstruction of the Southern Tier that also took place in April. Our team built the ASHRAE logo using cans; it took approximately 1,200 cans that were ultimately donated to emergency food programs throughout Broome County including food pantries, soup kitchens, and other community meal programs. Our project ended up winning a “Best Adherence to the Rules” award. A big thank you to Jason Gilbert for leading the effort, and for showing up on the day of the event even though he was not feeling well.
This month we will wrap up the season with our last Chapter Meeting that will take place in Ithaca on Tuesday May 15. We will have the pleasure of having Multistack Chillers’ regional manager present on the various chiller technologies, including modular chillers, VFD compressors, MagLev, and heat recovery chillers. Look out for more details on our newsletter and our e-blast emails.
