S610 President's Message
Welcome to the 2016–2017 Ottawa Valley Chapter
. I'd like to start by extending my
sincere thanks to all members of the Board of Governors
(BOG), Executive and the various committees for their
cooperation and tremendous contribution over the 2015–
2016 ASHRAE year. A special thanks to Georges
for his hard work and dedication as President. E-mail: [email protected]
Not only did Georges keep our chapter operating smoothly over the past year, he also
transitioned into his role as Past President all while leaving everything in a great state for me
to easily pick up where he left off. Thanks Georges!
As usual, the 2016–2017 edition of the Ottawa Valley Chapter ASHRAE
season is going to
be exciting and busy. We will continue our regular activities such as monthly program meetings,
YEA events, seminars, student activities, social events, and hopefully a tour and tech session
or two. As Georges so eloquently stated last year, "No President can do this alone, it takes a
great group of volunteers to make it happen". We are always looking for individuals willing to
dedicate their time to ASHRAE, and volunteering for ASHRAE is very rewarding. Please consider
volunteering for one of our committees and do not hesitate to contact myself or any other BOG
member for more details. The wheels are in motion for assembling a great program for the upcoming year, which will
more than likely begin with our first meeting being held off-site, and more of a social outing in
concept. Be on the lookout for the September meeting location and details later this summer.
We are working on securing Restaurant International
at Algonquin College
remainder of the meetings again this year.
I am honoured to be serving you for this upcoming ASHRAE season and we have a tremendous
group of volunteers assembled for next year's committee chairs, BOG and Executive. Much like
yourselves, I'm looking forward to another successful ASHRAE season. We have several
returning committee chairs and members, and of special note this year we have Chris Fudge
joining the Executive as Secretary and Adrianne Mitani moving onto the BOG. We also have a
handful of new committee chairs in Jeremy Strong, Peter Shaw-Wood and Jeff Watson.
Congratulations on your new roles!
The annual Chapter Regional Conference (CRC)
is being hosted by the NB/PEI
this year in Moncton
on August 26 - 28. We will be sending several members to the event,
which will no doubt be rewarding and fun for all those who attend.
The Board, Executive and various committee chairs and members will be working hard behind
the scenes this summer to ensure a quality upcoming ASHRAE season. Enjoy the rest of our
summer, and I look forward to seeing you at our next chapter event!
