Hello ASHRAE Saskatoon!

First of all, I would like to thank those who have contributed to ASHRAE research so far this year.

So far, $1,340 has been raised for ASHRAE research.  Our goal is $9,500, so we are about 14% of the way there.  Our newsletter now has the fund raising thermometer back.  Yay!

Our chapter has made earned the Full Circle award, given for leadership in donating to ASHRAE Research.  Our President (Jeff), VP (Chris), Treasurer (Blake), Secretary (Mike), and RP Chair (Jonathan) have all given to ASHRAE research.  I invite you to join us.

Why give to ASHRAE research?  There are several reasons occurring to me: to help find new energy-efficient methods, materials, and ideas, to help ensure we are working with current resources (remember when the Fundamentals Handbook office equipment data included heat gain information on computer card punchers and microfiche readers?), and to know more about how to make better buildings.  Also, it can be kind of nice to get your name in the ASHRAE Journal as a contributor.  Please donate to ASHRAE research and help make a difference in HVAC&R knowledge.
