Welcome To ASHRAE: Jacksonville Florida

Fellow members,

I would like to say it's an honor to serve as your 2012-2013 ASHRAE Jacksonville president.  This year is packed with a great lineup of speakers and several other social outing events.  Thanks to all who attended the September luncheon.  The luncheons are geared towards the continued education of our members and others so that we can better serve humanity and promote a sustainable world.  As we attempt to meet the technical needs of our Chapter,  we are asking for the continuous participation and support of our members.  This can be done by providing topics for the society and attending the meetings.

This year,  I would like to challenge our chapter to meet the "Boarding ASHRAE Horizons" call from the President of ASHRAE Society Mr. Tom Watson.  As we all know, ASHRAE goes beyond HVAC&R.  In the construction and the designing of buildings, ASHRAE is the standard for which other disciplines such as architects, electrical engineers, general contractors, and plumbing engineers look to for guidance.  The standards of our society plays a role in a building envelope,  the lighting power densities for interior and exterior spaces, and there are many more areas that depend on the standards we provide. With that said, please share our meetings, social events, and website with other organizations.

I salute all that participate and support our Chapter.  Your actions provide value in ASHRAE.

Thank you,

Julius Harden, P.E.

ASHRAE Jacksonville Chapter President
