President's Message

Welcome to the Austin ASHRAE website!   The Austin Chapter of ASHRAE is vibrant and dedicated, serving our local members with many events -- whether you’re still in school, new to the industry, or a well-seasoned veteran.  Our chapter is working hard to provide the following activities for you:

  • Ten chapter meetings each year

  • Four Research Promotion events each year

  • Young Engineers in ASHRAE (YEA) meetings and tours

  • Student Activities, including K-12 advocacy

  • Supporting the student chapter at UT

  • Grassroots Government Advocacy

  • Membership Promotion

  • Monthly Newsletter

  • History & Awards

As your President this year, I encourage you to become active in our chapter: attend meetings, participate in events, and contribute to the combined knowledge, expertise, and camaraderie that makes the Austin chapter unique.  From personal experience, you definitely get more from being involved in ASHRAE than you put into it.

I am honored to serve as your Chapter President this year in one of the most exciting cities in the construction industry today.  I would like to personally thank the members who have volunteered their time and talents to make this chapter the best it can be. 

See you at an event soon.
