The President’s Message

By:  Ron McCarty

As the seasons changes from summer to fall, it is time for us to start a new year for the Arkansas ASHRAE chapter.  The start of this year was a little different than starts in years past with the addition of a new chapter for the State of Arkansas.  Our Northwest Arkansas group was sworn in as a full ASHRAE Chapter on September 7thwith presentation honors being performed by Charles E. Gulledge, ASHRAE Society Treasurer and Jon Symko, Region VIII Regional Director and Chair.  The Chapter dinner event was great and attended by over 60 people included numerous supporting representatives from the Little Rock Chapter.  We congratulate wish the NWA chapter in the accomplishment and wish them the best for the upcoming and future years. 

As we start our new year we need to recognize the accomplishments and awards that were received at the spring CRC in San Antonia, Texas.  Starting off was the vote to move forward with the Northwest Arkansas group to be chartered as a Chapter.  It continued from there with Arkansas winning the Chaparral Award, and Mark Eley received Special Citation with high Honor award for PAOE points. The Arkansas chapter received Regional awards:  Certificate, Full Circle Chevron, Gold Treasury Ribbon, Endowment Chevron and Runner up total PAOE points, $/member, total $ raised.  Overall CRC was a great event and I think everyone truly the hospitality and enjoyed the event.  I am looking forward to next year CRC in Cancun, Mexico – Let’s plan to have a great showing for Arkansas in Mexico.

This summer the Board of Governors and Committee Chairs have been working hard to get ready for the new year.   Our Chapter Technology Transfer Committee (CTTC) chairperson, Steve McConnell, started off with a great first meeting event with over 60 participated and a great speaker.  He has put together a strong list of programs and events that should bring a great deal of value to our Membership.  The next upcoming event after the October meeting on October 3rd is our fall golf event on October 5th.Josh Robinson has been working very hard to make this event a success and fun for all – Please sign-up, support and attend.  The fall golf event is the kick off our fund raising achieves for the Chapter.  

Two of the primary goals for the Arkansas Chapter this year revolve around Research Promotion (RP) donation and my primary focus for the year – Membership growth.  The outstanding events that are being planned and implemented by the Board of Governors and Committee Chairs will have a very positive effect on us as a Chapter to help us achieve our goals.

I am looking forward to this year for our chapter.  In addition, I feel honored and privileged to serve you as the incoming Chapter President for the 2018-2019 year.  Hopefully I can help maintain the high standards that have be a long-standing tradition for the Arkansas Chapter.  Please join us at all the events and contact anyone of the Board of Governors or Committee Chairs if you have ideas or want to become more involved with the Chapter.
