President’s Corner

Of behalf of the National Capital Chapter, I would like to again thank our excellent September meeting speakers. We were honored to host two past presidential members Dr. William Bahnfleth and Tom Watson.  Both the Seminar (PES) and dinner presentation were very well attended and we look to continue this strong start with another great program in October.

The October meeting scheduled for Wednesday, October 5th will promote collaboration with the International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA). The seminar will discuss Building Energy Modeling: Trends, Benefits and Payback. The panel of experts includes Annie Marston, Dru Crawley, and Vanessa Hostick, and will be moderated by Roger Chang. We are honored to have a past president Ron Jarnagin present during the dinner on a case study of the ASHRAE Headquarters. We would also like to thank and encourage everyone to continue to make reservations by the deadline, noon on the Friday, September 30th. The process ensures that the hotel will reserve a space that is adequately sized for the number of attendees. This also ensures that we can order the requisite number of meals and gives early registrants a substantial discount.

This month's meeting theme is Membership Promotion. A passionate, diverse, and engaged membership is crucial to the success of NCC. We rely on our members to seek out friends and colleagues to bolster our community and create a stronger membership. Please help us and support our Membership Promotion Committee by reaching out to a new prospective member today. Bring them to a PES, a dinner meeting, or even just talk to them about ASHRAE.

We are all looking forward to another great program, and I hope to see you all next week.

Best Regards,

Omar Hawit

President, National Capital Chapter, 2016-2017
