ALOHA - President’s Message - June 2017

 May had a variety of activities and meetings which included the 30th ASHRAE Chapter Golf Tournament at Pearl Country Club was fantastic weather, food, fun and prizes.  We hosted 2 Regional Vice Chairs, Heather Schopplein RVC for YEA and Zberri Alvi RVC for Research Promotion.  Heather helped us greatly by serving at the “Play it Forward” hole #1 donations and Zberri actually played on Ken Richardson’s Island Control team (and pulled a winning ticket for a 50” LG TV). The RP Golf Committee deserves a lot of praise for the great effort it took to get this event in shape and to pull it all together.

  At the Chapter Meeting the presentations of the Distinguished Lecturer, Victor Goldschmidt, PhD and by the 2016 Fall Semester students for their ME 417 Course requirements in Applied Thermal Engineering were fabulous. Another visit by Incoming Region X DRC, Marites Calad, RVC, Adam Davis, P.E. who is the Student’s Activities RVC joined us and presented his details of ASHRAE scholarship availability. Diamond Pedro and Kelsey Koshi hosted Prof. Goldschmidt at a luncheon on Wednesday and special visit was arranged with the Honolulu Community College Refrigeration Class at their Graduation event (Yakiniku Camellia Buffet) on Thursday to set up a future Student Branch with the potential Faculty Advisor Steve Chow, his associate professor and the Dean of their Department at HCC. 

 The Chapter voted for the slate of officers to lead us through the Society Year 2017-18.  Congratulations to all the incoming officers.  2017 installation of officer’s event is at the Honolulu Country Club on June 8th.

 Josh Jackson has a Sustainability Event on June 3 to help clean up Kewalo Basin Park starting at 8 am. Plenty of food and giveaways for participants. Bring tools and your clean-up spirit. Gloves and trash bags will be provided. Help Malama the LAST public oceanfront land in Urban Honolulu!!
