The April meeting is in the books and we have hit the unofficial end of the 2012/2013 ASHRAE season. I’d like to thank all of the students and faculty advisors for their participation throughout the season. Like last year, each monthly meeting from September through April had several student members in attendance and always a faculty advisor or two. I’m confident that they monthly meetings and presentations continue to provide students with good learning and industry networking opportunities.
The final scheduled ‘meeting’ for the 2012/2013 ASHRAE season is the Installation of Officers on May 14. There is no technical presentation at this meeting; however, it presents another opportunity for students to socialize with Boston Chapter members while next season’s Officers and Board of Governor members are introduced. This newsletter contains more information about the Installation of Officers dinner. Students are welcomed guests at this event!
I’ll be spending the time between now and the next ASHRAE season planning potential student activities. The construction site tours continue to be a big hit, so I’ll likely include a few more of those. There will continue to be opportunities to have guest speakers available to give presentations about the industry or a specific technical topic. In the meantime, please contact me with any and all of your ideas for student activities in the 2013/2014 ASHRAE season.
Thank you once again for another successful year for the Student Activities Committee. I’m looking forward to picking up right where we left off when the new season gets rolling in the fall!
