ALOHA - President’s Message - September 2017

It is an honor to serve as your 2017-2018 Chapter’s President and I want to thank outgoing President Dean Borges in the wonderful job he did as Chapter President last year.  I learned a lot from him while I was President-Elect and only hope to do as well as he did.

I feel we have a great group of chapter officers and committee chairs this year that will do an outstanding job providing for our ASHRAE community.  To see all the officers and committee chairs go to the “Committees” tab on the ASHRAE Hawai’i Chapter website.  Together we will help achieve ASHRAE Society President Bjarne Olesen’s theme for this year titled “Extending our Community”.  His three main points of the theme being:  extend our global community; extend our technological horizons; and extend our value to members.

Many of you are aware of Hawai’i’s Clean Energy Initiative that has a goal of achieving the nation’s first-ever 100% renewable portfolio standards by the year 2045.  That is a very lofty goal but without setting lofty goals, great thinks will never be achieved.  Our ASHRAE community will play a vital role in seeing the clean energy initiative come to fruition and I am glad to be a part of this important task.  With the recent “King Tide” events here in Hawai’i, trying to slow the effects of climate change is getting more important every day.

If you would like to get more involved with Hawai’i ASHRAE Chapter and help push Hawai’i to a more sustainable future now is the time.  We are always looking for people who are willing to provide support to our chapter and who are looking to make a difference in our community.

Look forward to seeing everyone at upcoming meetings!
