From the President’s Desk

I am honored to be serving as the ASHRAE Pittsburgh Chapter President for this upcoming year and want to thank each member for the opportunity. ASHRAE is a society of members, and every member has a voice in our Chapter. I look forward to representing each member with honesty and integrity and being that voice for Pittsburgh as we continue to grow and reach new heights.

We accomplished many things this past year, including a record high turnout at our annual ASHRAE golf outing benefiting Research Promotion, and the launching our new website https://ashraepittsburgh.org/. However, 2017-2018 is shaping up to be even bigger and more exciting for our chapter. This year we are going to be having our 1st Annual Pittsburgh ASHRAE Chapter Sporting Clay Shoot – keep an eye out for the dates, and we are launching our social media platforms on Facebook and LinkedIn. Also this year, we will be planning Region III Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) 2018, which will be hosted by our Chapter, right here in Pittsburgh. We are still looking for volunteers to help on the CRC committee, so please reach out if you have any interest in being a part of this special opportunity.

Also, please remember to schedule this current year’s CRC on your calendars. This year will be held on August 17-19, 2017 in Roanoke, Virginia. A full day of technical sessions will be held on August 17th and the Welcoming Reception is on the 18th. All information regarding CRC can be found on the ASHRAE Region III website, here: http://region3.ashraeregions.org/.

Thank you again for giving me the chance to represent our ASHRAE Chapter this upcoming year, and for continued support and commitment. I look forward to seeing everyone at our first Chapter meeting this September.


Andrew McLaughlin
President, Pittsburgh Chapter 2017 - 2018
