A new calendar year for ASHRAE has begun! Speaking on behalf of the Chapter, I’d like to thank David Houle for his stellar leadership last year. We had a good year under his watch and I hope to continue with his forward momentum.

One of the accomplishments from last year was the updating of our website. That work will continue, as well as other gradual changes throughout the year. Expect to see a transition away from the Google Group mailing list as the website continues to develop and mature. In fact, feel free to create a new account on the website, as that will be the way to hear about the latest happenings and newsletters. Oh, and we have a Twitter Account now: https://twitter.com/NortheastASHRAE

August and September are action-packed, featuring the Chapter Regional Conference (CRC) and our annual golf outing. The CRC took place August 17-19: if you attended and took pictures, feel free to forward them to us so we can post them on the website! The other major event, our golf outing, will take place September 15. We are accepting registrations – please email Kendra (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) your registration and payment. I look forward to seeing you there!

Of course, none of these events or achievements would be possible without those who selflessly volunteer their time in various roles. I’d like to introduce you to this year’s Chapter Officers and Chairs:


Kendra Potasiewicz    President Elect, Chapter Transfer Technology Chair, Program Chair
Kevin Houghtaling Vice President, Newsletter Editor
Ramy Girgis  Treasurer

Doug Belokopitsky Grassroots Government Activities Chair
Stanley Westhoff Historian
Todd Turcotte Webmaster, Electronic Communications Chair, Board of Governors

Brian McLean Board of Governors

Russ Danforth Board of Governors

If you’re interested in serving, we’re currently looking for a YEA Chair and Honors and Awards Chair. Please contact me (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you’re interested.


Thank you, stay safe, and see you at the golf outing on September 15th!


Adam Feather
