Kansas City ASHRAE Members,

With Thanksgiving upon us and the Holidays right around the corner, it is a great time to be cognizant of all those around us who contribute to our chapter. We’ve had a lot of great local involvement in our programs this year, including major program contributions from WL Cassell (twice!), Henderson, JE Dunn, MMC, and MSM. We’ve had great turnout at the meetings and were able to host a large number of students at the tour last month. Thank you to all those who have gotten involved, those who have sponsored students at the meetings, and all those who have attended the meetings.

For our December program we will receive an update on the City Energy Project from Jennifer Gunby, the Community Energy Program Manager. We’ll get a great overview of the project, its local impact on our building standards, and what to expect going forward with a transition to the Clean Energy Resource Center. Thank you to the Programs Committee for setting up another exciting and informative meeting and thank you to Jennifer for sharing your insights.

The AHRAE winter conference is now right around the corner. It is in Las Vegas coming up Jan 28th through February 1st.  Registration can be found here: https://www.ashrae.org/membership–conferences/conferences/2017-ashrae-winter-conference

 

Looking forward to seeing everyone on December 5th. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
