Welcome to a new service of Puget Sound ASHRAE: The Puget Sound ASHRAE blog.
This blog in intended to give our members a new avenue to interact with the chapter and with other members. It is intended to be a more flexible and responsive addition to our current webpage--but what it will become is very much up to the input and response of the membership and the chapter officers.
Take a look around--if you are visiting sometime around 8/17/07, what you will see is very much a work in progress. There are a few industry news items, a (mostly empty) chapter calendar, and a few posts dealing with the potential use of this blog and other technology tools to improve our chapter's services to our membership and to further our efforts to support the ASHRAE mission.
If you are new to blogs and want a little guidance in working with this site, please visit our on-line instruction manual. It should give you a better idea of how this website works and how you can work with it.
You will notice that after every post, there is a 'comment' link. This is to allow members or other interested parties to give us feedback or to contribute to the discussion for the benefit of other users of this blog. You are encouraged to comment--We want your insight and involvement!
Before commenting, however, be sure to familiarize yourself with our posting guidelines. Anyone can comment, but to post original contributions you'll need to first sign up for a free gmail account. Then e-mail the Chapter President for authorization; be sure to include your gmail account name.
And don't get too attached to the format--we expect to add more and more features and to integrate this site more seamlessly with our current web presence.
Please explore, and tell us what you think! We are hoping to build this site with your recommendations and suggestions.
