Hello Fellow ASHRAE Northeast Members,
Happy New Year. I wish everyone got a nice break and have a happy holiday… It was nice to take a break and enjoy some time with family.
There are two important events which are coming in February. The first one is ASHRAE Winter Conference (February 9-11, 2021). The 2021 ASHRAE Virtual Winter Conference will take place in a convenient, online format. Attendees can join live discussions with top experts, learn the latest updates relating to COVID-19, and have access to 90+ technical sessions for 18 months. Group rates are available, and members register for just $249.
The second event is The Capital District’s 41th Anniversary Celebration Of National Engineers Week In The Capital District (February 11-12, 2021). The Capital District E-Week’s focus is to promote the Engineering Profession. The purpose of this event is to raise public awareness of engineers’ positive contributions to the quality of life, promote the importance of technical education including a high level of math, science, and technology literacy among parents, teachers, and students, and motivate youth to pursue engineering and related careers to provide a diverse and vigorous engineering workforce.

I wish you all to stay safe.
