Our presenter this month will be Mr. Rich Rooley with his presentation on “Leadership and Management for Engineers”. The annual Kansas City Chapter’s golf tournament will be held on May 11th. This year’s event will allow more opportunities for sponsorship, so I welcome all who can participate.

As the “construction season” starts to swing into high gear, I find my tenure as Chapter President coming to a close. The year has gone faster than I thought it would, but I hope I’ve been able to help our chapter continue on the successful road we’ve been traveling thanks to the Presidents that have come before me.

I’d like to close out my final Presidential Message with this… I am reminded again and again that this is a volunteer organization – the KC ASHRAE Chapter is made possible by members participating at meetings, to committee chairs, to Board of Governor Members, to the Officers Slate – the very existence of our chapter is due directly to the efforts of the membership as a whole. Without everyone putting in that extra effort above and beyond their families and paying jobs, there are no monthly meetings, no tours, and no education opportunities.

This Chapter has a long history of leadership, not only in our Region, but in the entire ASHRAE Society. I am proud to say that my Chairs and Officers have continued this tradition of excellence during this last ASHRAE year. So I’d like to take this opportunity, for anyone still reading, to say thank you. Thank you for all that you’ve done. I really do appreciate it.

With that said, thank you for all your support.

Thank you
Kevin Morris
Chapter President
