A Message From The President

RyanW Headshot

To the National Capital Chapter of ASHRAE,

I hope everyone has been appreciating the colors of fall and are starting to get out and see the holiday festivities that seem to come earlier and earlier every year. As a group, the board has been keenly watching COVID figures in the Washington DC Metro area and trying to determine when the right time to start back up in person meetings. We had initially looked at around December and with the availability of the third booster for many of us, I feel as comfortable as I will likely feel in going back to in-person meetings starting in the New Year. Stay tuned and we will be sure to use the new website to communicate plans. I apologize again for the changing target, but hope you can get some solace in the fact that we have great virtual meetings with quality speakers in the meantime.

The upcoming December 8th meeting is a continuation of the quality speakers, where we will take a deeper dive into topics that is often not taught as curriculum in many engineering schools. It is expected that some topics are better suited to real-world experience and our topics this month are certainly in this category. I hope you join us in hearing Terry Rogers and Tom Gilbertson speak about what happens when things don’t always go as planned. Please see the NCC announcement for more on the speakers and their topics.

Lastly from my side, I wanted to highlight the new website again, as we are looking to make this a fundamental cornerstone of our communication as a chapter and will be building out our NCC committee pages such as WiA, YEA, as well as increasing content and links to society announcements and trainings. We have listened and I am proud of all the hardwork that has led to the current website and want to encourage everyone to reach out to any of the Board members for suggestions on how we can make the content more applicable and helpful to you and others in the NCC community.

Be well, do Good!

Ryan Westlund

2021-2022 NCC President
