President's Message

Dear Twin Tiers Chapter Members,

Thank you to those who attended the first session of the annual Spring Symposium last month. A special thank you to our speakers who presented, Rob Zerillo, Pat Graef, and Michael Licastro. Topics included electric snow melt, business ethics for the HVAC professional, and sensored or sensorless variable speed pump control.

There are a couple of items coming up that I would like to remind our members of:
   - The second session for the annual Spring Symposium will be held on Thursday June 10th. The second session will again be virtual, and a flyer will be sent out soon with registration and program information.
   - Our annal golf and clambake outing will be held on Tuesday, June 15 at The Links at Hiawatha. Early bird registration pricing will be available until May 28 and regular registration ends on June 4. A flyer will be circulating with additional information. If you have any questions, please contact Travis Fisher at tf222@cornell.edu.

As always, if you would like to get involved in the chapter operations or events, please feel free to reach out to me or any other board member you may know. We are always looking for new volunteers for the chapter.

Thank you.
Devin Shapley
Twin Tiers Chapter President 2020-2021
