April 2015 President's Report

William Lee, P.E.

Bill Lee, P.E.

Thanks to Kevin Luoma and Rob Brown for planning last month’s Technical Seminar on Indoor Air Quality and thanks to the 48 attendees who a great day of technical presentations, and thanks to the vendors who participated in the products show.

For this month’s meeting we continue on the Indoor Air Quality theme with our guest speaker – Ken Beal from ENPRO Environmental who will speak on “Indoor Air Quality – Moisture, Contaminants, and More -An overview of common Indoor Air Quality complaints and corrective actions” This should be a great time to learn more about an important subject that we should all be concerned about. Indoor Air Quality Association (which has a Hawaii Chapter) is now a part of ASHRAE.

Again, I would like to highlight the behind the scenes people that keeps our local ASHRAE chapter running.  This month I would like to introduce our Grassroots Governmental Activities Committee chairman – Dean Borges. Dean has been actively trying to inform our elected officials about ASHRAE.  (We’ve met with Sarah Kaopuiki, Director of External Affairs, and a representative from Senator Brian Schatz office.) Dean wears many hats for our Chapter. He also serves as the Vice President, newsletter editor and active as the Chair of the Hawaii Council of Engineering Societies which celebrates Engineers Week yearly.  Dean is also willing to lend a hand whenever help is needed for ASHRAE. Dean has served in many capacities in ASHRAE not only in the local level but at the society level. I feel very lucky to have him to help guide us in the Hawaii chapter. 

And in his spare time Dean works for InSynergy Engineering. Thanks Dean for all your hard work.

See you all at the April Chapter meeting.
