Hello everyone,

The vote is coming!  At our April meeting, the Saskatoon chapter of ASHRAE will be voting for our new President, Vice-President, Treasurer, and Secretary.  If anyone is interesting in joining the ASHRAE Saskatoon chapter board of governors (or you have an idea of who might be interested), then please come talk to me or another member of the board.  This is a great way to get involved and help promote HVAC&R learning.  At the March meeting, we nominated a few people, but not enough to fill the positions, so please consider joining the chapter board.

For the last meeting of the year, we have Dan O’Brian coming to talk to us about kitchen ventilation.  See the programs part of the newsletter for more information.

This year, the Saskatoon chapter of ASHRAE had a competition for the Chapter Technology Award.  The 2011 ASHRAE Saskatoon Chapter Technology Award winner is the VerEco Home, submitted by Kelly Winder and Ronn LePage.  ASHRAE Saskatoon got a chance to tour the VerEco Home at our last meeting and now it won the Chapter Technology Award.  Congratulations!

ASHRAE is once again having their free webcast.  This time the topic for the April 21 is “Ground Source Heat Pump Systems: Putting the Earth to Work for You”.  You can watch this three-hour free webcast from your computer or join some follow ASHRAE Saskatoon members to watch it together over a pizza lunch.  (There will be a small cost to cover the food.)  Details on the gathering will be coming shortly.  Information on the webcast itself can be found at
