As Chapter Historian, I look forward to documenting another year of our Chapter Activities. These include our monthly meetings and special events such as the John Ross Bonspiel, Lobsterfest, Past Presidents Night, Student’s Night, Christmas Luncheon, ASHRAE Golf and this year, the ASHRAE Trade Show.
There are many different ways we as a Chapter can earn Presidential Award of Excellence (PAOE) points. Some of these include a Leadership Recall interview, which I did last year with Past President Eugene H. Bolstad, P. Eng. I look forward to another recall this season.
A huge thank you to all our 2014-15 ASHRAE Research contributors. Please see our recognition board for last years donors. The 2014-15 ASHRAE NAC Research Campaign was the most successful ever. Thanks to all your support we were able to raise $18,590. Our new chapter high was able to help Region XI reach a new all time high of $179,112.
This year we will be bringing back the monthly recognition board.
The 2014 / 15 ASHRAE Research campaign is coming to a close here in a few short weeks.
Did you know that currently there are over $14 million worht of reseach being funded thru ASHRAE Research? That is a pretty big number going directly back into the research and development of our industry.
Its not too late if you are still interested in donating.

Due to the generous support of our members and guests, we are pleased to announce that $3,000 was raised for the Christmas Bureau at our annual Christmas Luncheon, held at Highlands Golf club today.
"Since 1940, the Christmas Bureau has maintained one tradition - providing a festive meal to Edmontonians in need at Christmas time through the promotion of the spirit of Christmas caring and sharing in the City of Edmonton".
Please visit www.christmasbureau.ca for further details of this worthy cause.
