Chapter President 2019-2020
Welcome everyone to another exciting year for ASHRAE BC. It is my honor, and privilege to be serving as the 2019-2020 ASHRAE BC Chapter President. As we begin a new ASHRAE year I would first like to thank our outgoing president Branislav (Baki) Cvijetinovic for his hard work, and dedication to continue our chapter success. I would also like to thank all the members of the BC Chapter for the ongoing support, donation, and involvement in our programs and activities.
The mission of our board of governors is to continue to make membership as valuable, and rewarding as possible by providing our members with current industry knowledge, discussing local issues as well as networking opportunities. Our Programs committee has been hard at work this summer to formulate a great schedule of interesting dinner meeting topics presented by various experts and distinguished lecturers including a special visit for a lunch time meeting at SFU Downtown by current ASHRAE President Darryl Boyce on October 31.
Similar to our province our chapter is strengthened by the diversity of the individuals that represent it. Our active membership is made up of people from many different industry sectors and backgrounds and is as diverse as our province itself. I encourage all our chapter members to take time to chat with fellow members, board members, and committee chairs at our upcoming meetings and enjoy the many benefits of being part of the ASHRAE BC Chapter.
I am proud to serve as this chapter’s president for the term of 2019-2020, and look forward to meeting you at the next meeting.
