President's Message

Good day and Happy ASHRAE New Year!


The ASHRAE 2017-18 Year is upon us and as New President for the term, I invite you to be a frequent visitor to the website and become an Active member of our chapter.

The Board has continued to meet throughout the summer to fill the calendar with technical and social opportunities amongst all committees that will extend across new channels of professional organizations, and grow our current relationships in place.

My goal this year is to carry out the theme of ‘Extending our Community’, by being the catalyst to renew your efforts with ASHRAE as we are optimistic and enthusiastic of the future ahead. We remain committed to our community, technological horizon, and adding value to our members!

So, this will be an exciting year for ASHRAE NY, both for you and for me. This also will be a busy year with many challenges; but it is important that we have fun and enjoy the journey!

I thank our committed volunteers as our chapter’s work would not be possible without your support.

As Society President says it best “Your dedication to furthering our Society and industry is what has always made ASHRAE great.


Frank Rivera, P.E.
