Well it's definitely feeling like fall outside with the crisp air, football in full swing, and apple picking.  September was a great month with fantastic attendance at the first meeting of the year and a rare Supermoon lunar eclipse. I hope you got to experience this rare event. As we move into October it is typically a fun month with Halloween and other fun fall activities.

This month is student night with a refrigeration theme.  Our presenter this month is Douglas Reindl who is an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer and a professor in the Departments of Engineering Professional Development and Mechanical Engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The topic this month is ASHRAE Standard 15 - A Review and Update. There will also be a technical session prior to the main meeting that will provide an introduction to ammonia refrigeration systems that you won’t want to miss.

Since this meeting is a student night we will be recognizing those that won the local scholarships and a national ASHRAE Duane Hanson Scholarship. This will be an exciting time for these student members and a great time to share experiences you've had during your career with these students.

There is still time this year for members to take advantage of the cafeteria plan for $100. Taking advantage of the cafeteria plan is very beneficial as you plan to attend 5 or more meetings this year.

Also coming sooner than later is the 2016 ASHRAE Winter Conference and the AHR Expo in Orlando.  Don't miss out - register by Nov. 2 to save at
