April was another busy month for the Boston Chapter. I hope you enjoyed the Take Control webcast and the tour at Nightshift Brewery. I want to thank Ginger Scoggins for flying all the way from Raleigh, NC to speak at both the technical session – Attract, Retain & Promote Women in the HVAC Industry and the main program – ASHRAE Standard 100. Both topics were well attended and generated meaningful discussions among attendees.
At the April meeting, Northeastern University’s Sustainable Building Organization (NUSBO) made a short presentation on their Department of Energy Race to Zero Student Design Competition. NUSBO’s design was selected as one of the finalist in competition. The Boston Chapter awarded NUSBO with $2,500 so they could attend the final competition in Golden, Colorado.. We hope more ASHRAE Boston student organizations will participate in similar programs and be considered for this award.
April marked the last technical meeting for the 2016-2017 season. I hope you found this year’s technical programs useful. We look forward to the Installation of Officers in May and the Annual Golf Tournament in June.
