Director Regional Chair (DRC)

Hello everyone and what a great year we are having! I am very proud of the accomplishments of this Region. I have been hearing great things about how each chapter is conducting successful programs and chapter business. Regionally, we are up in ASHRAE Research donations, have added a new student chapter at Santa Clara University and came in second place to Region 2 for technology awards. OUTSTANDING! Keep up the great work.

We are coming to the end of another year. The Annual Meeting is taking place in Denver on June 22-26. I hope to see you there. The Regional Planning Meeting and the Presidents Elect Training are taking place on June 1 and 2 in Los Angeles at the ARUP offices. The base hotel is the LAX Marriott and we will have a diner there as well as block of rooms for those who need a place to stay. I am really looking forward to seeing all our Presidents Elect attend and take the opportunity to expand their knowledge of ASHRAE and Chapter Operations. I have issued an agenda for these meetings. If you have not received them and you are interested in attending, even if you are not a member of the Regional Executive Committee or a Chapter President Elect please let me know and I will send you the information.

The Chapters Regional Conference is coming August 8-10. If you are a Chapter Chair, Chapter Officer or sit on the Board of Governors as a Governor-at-Large please plan on attending the meeting. The registration is now open. To register you go to and click on the CRC Registration link and you will be taken to the registration page. You can also go to and click on the special events about midway down on the right hand side of the webpage. Early registration and booking of your hotel room will ensure you keep the costs down for the Region and your Chapter.

There are many chapter golf tournaments coming up and I encourage you to participate. This is where many chapters obtain the money for ASHRAE Research.

Thank you all for your service to your Chapter, our Region and our Society. Without you ASHRAE would not be successful.
