Hello Golden Gate ASHRAE Members!

We’re in the last stretch before the end of the ASHRAE year (June 30th), and there are still so many exciting things to happen.  On April 14th, please join us for our Annual Building Tour – this year, we’re taking you to the Oakland Unified School District Downtown Educational Complex, courtesy of Taylor Engineering.  The project won First Place at our Chapter CTTC’s awards and at Regional level.  The tour will be followed by Happy Hour.

While mentioning CTTC….In order to have a successful May meeting, we still need all of you to submit all your worthy projects for this year’s Technology Awards.  All the details can be found in the Fog Dispenser or on our website.

May is also scholarship time, and we encourage all students to apply before the April 11 deadline.  This is one aspect of being a volunteer for ASHRAE which feels really good – when we can help worthy and deserving students.

We are excited to be planning a full-day data center design workshop, scheduled for May 22 at the PG&E Energy Center. Keep your eyes open for an announcement soon with registration details.

And our chapter golf tournament will be held on July 25 at the Boundary Oaks Golf Course in Walnut Creek. See the announcement in the Fog Dispenser or the website for details.

Then, in the last stretch, there will be the ASHRAE Annual Conference in Seattle.  And while you might be going north, I will be (again) crossing the world to go to France!
