Welcome Back! - We have a great year planned and I am excited to share a few tidbits with you.

First , I would like to thank everyone for your support in electing me to serve as this year's chapter president and give a special thank you to Sharon Gould for her service as last year's president as well as all the help she gave me to get ready for my new position.

Your new board has had a change since last spring. Paul Schack has recently resigned his position as Member at Large, moved to Milwaukee and accepted a position with Trane. We wish Paul all the best in is new endeavers and hope to see him at the CRC in the spring. Pauls responsibilities on the board have been distributed to other board members, but we wish to fill this position as soon as possible. Therefore, if you know of anyone eager to volunteer and get involved, please contact one of the board members.

Matt Koukl has been busy planning the chapter meetings for this year. His line up of topics and a tour include sustainability, BIM, data centers, lab equipment, refrigeration and energy analysis. Stay tuned for more information. Until then, the September meeting is approaching, so read the meeting announcement and don't forget to register.

The June Golf Outing was a huge success, making over $3000 for RP. Thank you to everyone for the donations and sponsorships. Tim Wendt did an excellant job his first year as the golf committee chair and we look forward to hearing his plans for next year.

 In addition to a Member at Large position, we are looking for a few volunteers to help out in other areas. Pease contact a board member if you would like to help.

YEA Committee Chair: Volunteer to help plan one or two outings this year for our young engineers. Past activities have included and evening at Capital Brewery, a Brewers Game and a football party at the Union.

Are you good with computer work, planning events, finding speakers, organizing schedules, or internet activities.... let us know what you like to do and we can find something for you. Contact Sharon Gould or myself if you would like to help.

Fundamentals Seminars: The Chapter would like to organize 1-3 seminars this year that focus on HVAC Fundamentals  such as pumps or fans.  The seminars would be geared towards engineers with 0-5 years of experience. Please contact Andrew Price if you would liket o help.

The Cafeteria plan will be available again this year for members. please sign up for the plan when registering for the September or October meetings. The plan is $100 and is a great bargain is you plan to attend 5 or more meetings.

Grassroots Government Activities Committee - Madison Benchmarking Ordinance

Soon,  the City of Madison is looking at adopting a benchmarking ordinance.  This ordinance will provide the market – current and prospective building owners, operators, and tenants – with information about building energy performance. It will encourage building owners and tenants to learn about their energy use and work together to lower their costs. Madison is well-positioned to take advantage of the experience of other cities that have implemented similar policies already, and to create a program that works best for Madison’s buildings and environment.  The final copy of the letter the chapter is providing will be posted here shortly.  If you have comments or questions, please contact the GGAC committee chair Manus McDevitt (MMcDevitt@sustaineng.com) or Carol Mori (president@ashraemadison.org).  There is more information in the newsletter.
