    Please register for our May 10th meeting here.

    ..Adapt, Energize and Engage. This was our theme throughout the Chapter year and at times challenged both myself and the Board of Governors as we strove to create a unique environment of professional learning and camaraderie. We elected to take chances and break from the norm and slowly began to see new faces joining our ranks. I've been told over the past several months our meetings have become fun, something to look forward to and somewhere to share ideas and mutual challenges of our HVAC/R industry.

    I've enjoyed speaking with our newest members, both from the Society and Student levels, as well as the familiar faces of those who've stayed true to the CNY Chapter year after year. Rest assured we are in good hands of a young and very talented Board of Governors who will undoubtedly continue to lead our Chapter in a positive trajectory and we ask you continue to give them your support and encouragement.

    As I close my Presidency, I wish to thank our Members, Donors, Program Speakers, Sponsors and the Board of Governors for an inspiring year. It's been an honor to serve you and I encourage both you and your peers to continue to be in the room. I know I will.

    Please view and download our April newsletter here.


    What a way to start the first two days of April!!  The CNY ASHRAE Chapter hosted the first ever SmartStart Weekend for Mechanical Engineering students at the Syracuse University Center of Excellence and the event couldn’t have been any better.  I’d personally like to extend a very special thanks to Enrica Galasso (Student Activities Chair) and Matt Clark (Young Engineers in ASHRAE Chair) for spearheading this remarkable weekend and there is no doubt this event wouldn’t have happened had it not been for their extreme dedication and organization.  We were honored to host not one, but two ASHRAE Society Distinguished Lecturers for this event as Society Past-President David Underwood and his wife Jane joined us for the entire weekend (my wife Linda and I had the honor of joining them for dinner at the SmartStart Dinner in Armory Square) followed by Jorge Hernadez mesmerizing the students during Day 2 of the program.  Please read more about this incredible weekend in the upcoming April newsletter and Enrica and Matt will provide a brief summary at the April 12 Chapter Dinner Meeting.

    Speaking of the April meeting, we have a packed agenda:

    • Please help us welcome Mr. Bill Pearson of Special Pathogens Laboratory as he discusses ASHRAE Standard 188 Legionella for the Main Program (1 PDH credit).  This topical discussion is relevant for all who design, manage or maintain Healthcare and Higher Education facilities. 
    • In addition, we’ll be honoring Mr. Chris Martin as this year’s recipient of the Member Recognition Award for his continued service to ASHRAE and our CNY Chapter.
    • The newly proposed Board of Governors and Officers for the 2017-2018 Chapter Year is noted in the newsletter and we welcome your comments.  As is customary, the BoG and Officers Slate will be inducted at the final May 10th  Chapter Dinner Meeting.
    • Please thank Geoff Sincavage and Johnson Controls Inc. as this month’s sponsors of the ever popular Social Happy Hour from 5:30 – 7:00pm.  The beer is FREE and the conversation is too.

    Key note:  Given our heavy meeting agenda, we plan to forgo this month’s Technical Session presentation but will resume again at the final May 10th Chapter Dinner Meeting.

    Thank you as always and we look forward to you,.. “being in the room”.

    Spring appears to be in the air, temperatures are climbing and the days are slowly getting longer. These are sure signs Winter is coming to an end and acts as subtle signals the current Chapter year will begin to draw to a close. Rest assured however we are firing on all cylinders and continue to pack the closing months with new and exciting events. This month we embark on our Dual Technical Session & Main Program schedule where engineers can earn two (2) PDH credits in one meeting. The Technical Session coincides with our ever popular Social Happy Hour so grab a beer on us while you earn a PDH credit.

    April kicks off with ASHRAE Society's first ever SmartStart Weekend aimed at recruiting the next generation of ASHRAE members, followed by our monthly program meeting featuring a review of ASHRAE Standard 188 Legionella.

    May is our last program meeting for the year and we welcome ASHRAE Society Distinguished Lecturer Chuck Gulledge who will discuss Integrated Building Design.

    As always, we close the Chapter year in June with our golf outing and legendary Clambake on June 8th.

    We hope you join us for these events and help the Chapter (and Region 1) finish strong. Thank you for your continued support.
