President's Message

Fellow ASHRAE members,

I hope you all had a great Summer. In August, several of our chapter members attended the Region VII CRC in Nashville, TN. We were able to report a lot of success to our regional leaders, and wereturned with awards too numerous to mention here. This is all thanks to your work and participation in our chapter activities.

We will resume our monthly meetings in September. In September only, due to scheduling conflicts, we are moving our meeting to the fourth Wednesday, September 27th.   We will continue to meet at Hamil’s this year. Jason Grossi, our CTTC chair, and his committee have worked hard to schedule some interesting speakers. The speaker lineup for the year is posted on the chapter website. Our speaker for the September meeting will be Dorsey Carson, Jr. of the Carson Law Group in Jackson, MS. He will be speaking on public procurement. His bio is attached and posted on the website.    

I am very excited about the upcoming year. We have a dedicated group of officers and committee chairs with whom I am proud to serve. Our new officer names and positions are posted on the website.  During my term as president I plan to have a special focus on Student Activities. This is an area in which we can increase our visibility in the local community, and which in turn will help us identify young talent and grow our chapter. I will be posting more on this as we get further into the year. For those of you who do not already know, we redesigned our website last year and moved it to a new address. The URL for the new site is www.msashrae.com. Please visit often for MS Chapter updates and information

I look forward to seeing you all at our upcoming meeting.


Joe Blalock
