President's Message

Welcome to the 2013-2014 ASHRAE San Diego year! It is going to be amazing. We have a great group of volunteers ready and eager to make this year extraordinary.

I have a passion for this industry that I know many of you share. I know most of you, like me, cannot walk into a room without looking up at the ceiling or over to the roof next door. That is followed by some under your breath mutterings of why did they do that?, that unit needs replacing, that must have been a VE, etc. My friends joke that I can't have a conversation without bringing up HVAC or ASHRAE. Luckily most of these friends don't judge me for it, since they share my enthusiasm on the topic.

I look at all of the wonderful opportunities to grow and learn that ASHRAE has provided me over the last 7 years (I joined within a year of graduating college), and I look forward to giving a bit back to the organization and community. My goal for this year is to get more people involved and to grow our membership. To help meet this goal, we will be providing more social events, volunteer opportunities, family events, mentoring for new members, and additional educational opportunities. Some new things to look forward to:

  • Beer Tour
  • Habitat for Humanity Project
  • Community Outreach Events
  • Family Event/BBQ
  • New Group Learning Course
  • New ALI Course
  • ACE Mentoring
  • And More!

Don't worry though we will still be doing our "fan" favorites, such as the Annual Holiday Party, YEA events and Golf Tournament. Hugh Egan, your President-Elect, has also scheduled some informative monthly meetings/programs (typically the 2nd Tuesday of every month). We have not removed any of the value you have come to expect from our chapter, we have added value!

I can't wait to see everyone at our upcoming ASHRAE events!

Thank you,

Heather Schopplein, PE
