Want to thank all 100 plus members that came out for our January 8 meeting to honor our Past Presidents and Hall of Fame recipients Ms. Stacie Suh, Mr. Mike (Michael J) Sconsoni, and Mr. Jim (James F) Liston. Thank you Mr. Eric Edman for honoring our Hall of Fame recipients and the great presentation on the History of ASHRAE for Historian Night. In addition, a very special thank you to Mr. Bill Gnerre and Mr. Kevin Fuller on their Main Session topic on “Why Does It Take So Long With So Much Effort to Get the Control System Working to Your Satisfaction?”, we greatly appreciated you all taking the time to present to our chapter members and guests.

The February 12 meeting is our Membership Promotion and Student Activity Night, the meeting will be at the Metro Meeting Center in Boston.
