ALOHA - President’s Message for 2019-2020 Society Year

I am honored to be given the opportunity to serve you as the President of ASHRAE Hawaii Chapter for the 2019-2020 Society Year (SY). I am very grateful to all of our members for entrusting me with the great responsibilities associated with this noble position. With the help of our devoted Board of Governors and Committee Chapter chairs, we will strive for a successful society year.

Our Installation of Officers Banquet was held on June 13, 2019 at the Plaza Club. ASHRAE Region X DRC, Ms. Marites Calad, installed the Officers and BOGs. Certificates and Awards were provided to the outgoing Officers and BOGs for their outstanding performance in 2018-19 SY. Everyone looked like they had a wonderful time, enjoying the food with a “Just-Like-Vegas” event afterwards. Thank you to the membership and generous sponsors that helped made this event possible.   

A big Mahalo to our outgoing President Mr. Mofazzal Mir, who did a wonderful job as the President last society year. I will do my best to follow in his footsteps and uphold the presences of ASHRAE in Hawaii, as he did during this tenure. With his continued efforts in pursuing a scholarship fund with the ASHRAE foundation, as started by previous President Kevin Luoma, we will now get a chance to take applications to award a local student that is pursuing an engineering degree that has emphasis on HVAC&R. We will continue the tradition of giving back to our wonderful community.

This year’s ASHRAE CRC will be a joint meeting with Region IX and X and held in San Diego, California, on August 18-20, 2019. I’m very eager and excited to attend as the conference will provide a great opportunity for us to express our opinions on how ASHRAE should operate and get the opportunity to nominate the Regional and Society level leadership. The Conference will also include a lot of leadership training, events and workshops to equip us with tools and knowledge to run our chapter efficiently. We hope to take this knowledge back to our chapter and share it amongst the Committee chair members.

As always, we encourage our membership to volunteer and participate in all of our chapter events this year and make our ASHRAE Hawaii Chapter one of the most active chapters in the region. For those who are not a member yet and are interested in becoming a member or getting more involved, please reach out to me.

Hope to see you all at the next meeting.
