September Chapter Activities

Thank you for attending!

More than 60 members and guests attended our first meeting of the year featuring ASHRAE Society President Lynn Bellenger’s presidential address Modeling a Sustainable World.

The next evening, a group of 20 participated in the TEGA tour of Georgetown Brewery led by brewery partner, mechanical engineer, and Chopper’s Red Ale namesake Bret Chopp.

Thank you for attending these events and we look forward to your participation throughout the year. Remember to invite your coworkers and friends to join us at upcoming Chapter events!

What’s happening behind the scenes?

In addition to meetings, there is a tremendous amount of “behind the scenes” committee activity. While visting Seattle, Lynn Bellenger met with AIA Seattle board member Rico Quirindongo and AIA+2030 Program Manager Cassandra Delaune to discuss partnership opportunities between ASHRAE and AIA to support the 2030 Challenge.

In September David Landers, Chapter President, and Kathi Shoemake, TEGA Committee Chair, attended the Puget Sound Engineering Council’s Inter-Society Officer’s Workshop and connected with local leaders of many engineering societies to exchange ideas and work toward joint meetings and partnerships.
Board of Governors member Tamas Bencsik will soon be attending the Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) fall leadership retreat at Society headquarters in Atlanta.

Additionally, we have a new Chapter Historian: Luna Michael. We welcome Luna as she takes on the role of documenting our chapter’s legacy and resurrecting relics from the past for our enjoyment in Punch List articles and at history-themed meetings.
