2017 - 2018 President's Message

Dear members of the Southern California ASHRAE Chapter,

Thank you for your continued support, enthusiasm, and commitment towards advancing the HVACR industry. I am truly honored to serve as your 2017-2018 Chapter’s President. I will give it my full effort and will continue doing the things that make ASHRAE and our local chapter such great organizations.

ASHRAE’s sense of community, at local and worldwide scales, is crucial towards our mission to advance the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world. For this reason, my goals for the year are to continue strengthening the community aspect of our chapter. To continue growing our membership. To continue encouraging students to get involved in this industry by awarding scholarships and welcoming them to our monthly meetings. To continue nurturing an environment that provides technical knowledge, professional development, and leadership opportunities. And to continue building the camaraderie that keeps people coming back and contributing to our chapter.

To the new and returning members of our Board and Committee Chairs, I am very thankful for your commitment and dedication towards ASHRAE. We are very fortunate to have you on our team. I am looking forward to working with you this year.

Please welcome our 2017-2018 Chapter Officers:

  • Secretary – Brian James
  • Treasurer – Eric Tobiassen
  • President-Elect – Ricson Chude
  • President – Omar Rojas

And our 2017-2018 Board of Directors:

  • Joanne Choi
  • Nick Rosner
  • Rafi Karim
  • Nelson Echeverry

If you have an interest in getting more involved with the Southern California ASHRAE Chapter, now is the perfect time! We are always looking for new talents to support and volunteer in the leadership of our Chapter.

Looking forward to see you all at our upcoming meetings.
