President’s Message

San Joaquin Valley ASHRAE Members,

The New Year is upon us and we have lots of exciting things to look forward to in 2014. I am extremely excited that we get to kick off the new year with the Distinguished Lecturer meeting on January 9th. The ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer program provides ASHRAE chapters with nationally certified lecturers to speak on subjects of interest to ASHRAE members and guests. 167 visits are allocated to the 14 ASHRAE regions for the 2013-14 Society Year. We are very lucky to secure a DL in general but we were also able to select a broad topic that all of our members will enjoy.  Peter Simmonds, PhD will be speaking on “High Performance Buildings and Occupant Comfort”.His presentation is approved for continuing education credit by the AIA and USGBC, certificates will be provided at the event. This is a great accomplishment for our chapter to host an event of this caliber. We hope our membership and other industry partners take full advantage of it by attending. Many thanks to our CTTC Chair Gary Lindeman and our entire San Joaquin chapter board of governors for putting this event together. I am confident it will be a great success.

We have some great events planned for the duration of the year:

  • January 9th – Lunch Meeting, Peter Simmonds, PhD - Distinguished Lecturer: High Performance Buildings and Occupant Comfort
  • February 6th – Facility Tour and Student Night- Location and Details TBA at a later date.


I look forward to seeing everyone at our January 9th meeting. It will be a great warm up before the the ASHRAE Winter Conference. I am confident we can beat the chapter high 55 attendee number from last year with this national conference caliber event!


Best Regards,

Justin Westmoreland, PE

President, San Joaquin Valley ASHRAE Chapter
