President's Message:

Edwin Hornquist, President

Dear Members, I am privileged for the opportunity to serve as your Chapter's President during this 2013 - 2014 year cycle. I am humbled to lead an ASHRAE Chapter that is committed to our industry, our members, our future generations of professionals, and to the entire ecosystem of individual and companies that are represented in our membership.

From MEP and HVAC firms, to energy services companies and utilities. Our members focus on buildings systems, energy efficiency, indoor air quality, refrigeration, and sustainability. Our diversity is truly remarkable.

Over the last few years serving the Chapter in various capacities, I have met many of you and learned about your contributions in promoting our industry and ASHRAE's mission to advance the arts and sciences to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world. This is an awesome mission that motivates my work and that I am proud to promote through our Chapter activities.

This year you have a team of highly motivated and committed Chapter Officers and Committee Chairs that understand the important role that our Chapter's grassroots activities play in ensuring our continued pursuit of ASHRAE's mission while meeting our diverse membership needs. I have enjoyed and look forward to serving with each of them for the remainder of my term and through our collective efforts making this year a success for all of our membership.

Lastly, I am very excited about the program we have delivered to you so far and I look forward to the rest of the year and seeing each of you at our monthly meeting, seminars, tours and other Chapter activities.
