September 2014 President's Report

William Lee, P.E.

Bill Lee, P.E.

As we start the new ASHRAE Hawaii 2014-2015 year, I would like to congratulate and thank our past president Barry Jim On, P.E. for a very successful year, and setting a high standard and great example for me to follow.  Thank you Barry for all your hard work for ASHRAE Hawaii amidst all your other work and family duties.

And also a big Mahalo to all of last year’s committee chairs and volunteers for all the blood, sweat and tears. There is an incredible amount of work that is done behind the scenes, and I am always amazed at the dedication and effort that our BOG and committee chairs put in.  Thank you all.

Turning to the future, I hope we can build on the great foundation and success of this past year.  As I mentioned in my speech at the Installation banquet I would like to emphasize three things this year –

L – for learning – we are in a knowledge based industry, we need to keep up with the latest industry trends and developments, and ASHRAE is the perfect forum for learning.  We are the leading technical society literally setting the standards of our industry.  I hope everyone can come away from each meeting with something new that they have learned.  I’ve always believed if you want to earn more you need to learn more, and ASHRAE involvement is a great place to begin.

E – efficient – I hope that what you get out of ASHRAE will help you become better at what you do. Sometimes a little bit of knowledge can go a long way to helping you reach the next level in your career development.

E – effectiveness – the net result needs to translate to better output. 

Knowledge is great but it has to translate into better results.  ASHRAE involvement can not only help you better at your job but together we can help better our industry and help it grow.

Just to help you remember the 3 letters are “ LEE” – Basically because I could not think of an acronym for BILL.

Looking forward to seeing you at our meetings this year.

Bill Lee, P.E.
