The future is bright for the Alamo ASHRAE chapter, in large part, because of the great history and foundation that we are able to build upon. I found these 2 historical chapter charters and thought many of you would get a kick out of seeing these old documents.  The 1946 charter established the original "Southwest Texas Chapter" of the heating and ventilating engineers.  Between then and 1968, the organization name was changed to include refrigeration and air-conditioning.  

There will be no July chapter meeting, but we will have an August kickoff social party.  And, we want you to be there!

Lookahead...Please join us for the following events:

  • 7/9/2016 - Habitat for Humanity Build day - ASHRAE Group (need 8-10 folks)
  • July 2016 - no chapter meeting (summer break)
  • August 2016 - ASHRAE kickoff party (stone street pub @ 1604/281)
  • October 2016 - Fall Sporting Clays Shoot (Will be bigger and better this year)

Also of note, thanks to your financial contributions, we were able to start a society level scholarship endowment fund which will help sponsor scholarship dollars for local San Antonio recipients in the future.  We gave an intial contribution this year, and will complete the $30,000 commitment next year.  Awesome work!

I'd like to thank all of the ASHRAE volunteers that served our local chapter this year.  Countless hours and much thankless time and effort went into making this year a great success.  This was a special group and the results spoke for themselves.  We raised more money than we ever have before, had more events, grew the chapter, added new programming....and had a good time doing it.
