Call for Chapter Photos and Historical Items

As part of revamping our chapter’s website, we have been working to obtain photos and historical information from the chapter’s past, as well as other items of interest in the history of the HVAC&R and building industry. Unfortunately over the years, many of the items we used to have, have been lost or misplaced and we don’t have much to show anymore aside from our awards banner. If anyone has photos of past chapter events or historical items such as awards for our banner, or other items relevant to ASHRAE and the related industries, please contact me at

New Draft Chapter Bylaws Available for Review

Our chapter’s BOG is in the process of revising and updating our chapter Constitution and Bylaws. Our last update was in 2006 and since then, ASHRAE Society has changed the format required for chapters and we also are updating it to better reflect how we conduct business. The first draft of the new bylaws, including markup from the template provided by Society, is available on the Chapter Bylaws page.

The BOG has not yet set a firm date for ratifying the new document to replace the old one, but we anticipate it will be discussed, modifications made, and potentially ratified at the October BOG meeting. If you have any questions, please contact any BOG Member.
