Welcome to ASHRAE West Virginia's Total Building Performance Website


ASHRAE WV Chapter November Presidential Message

I want to thank the West Virginia chapter of ASHRAE and ZMM Architects & Engineers for supporting me and being an integral part of my presentation on STEM Education and Mechanical Engineering to 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at Chamberlain Elementary.  I strongly believe in the continued growth of STEM education in our K-12 schools; I know most of my peers also share this same view to some extent.  I encourage my fellow ASHRAE members to reach out to all schools and find a way to volunteer their time to lead STEM related conversations and activities with the young men and women who will one day lead this great country.  Become active in your daughters, sons, nieces, nephews and neighbors’ schools; you have more to offer than most of us ever realized.  I would also like to extend an offer of my time to any school that would be interested in having the WVASHRAE President visit and discuss STEM Education.  Please reach out to me if you know of any opportunities.

We are all looking forward to having some family friendly time together at our Holiday social event on Wednesday, December 14th from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at 222 Lee St., West in Charleston.  Please come join us for some beverages and appetizers; we welcome your spouses and your children, mine will be there!  If you plan to attend, an email to me would be appreciated.
