Hello Fellow ASHRAE Northeast Members,
It's December … We made it to the end of 2020 year. This year was full of unprecedented events. If we learn one thing from this year, it will be that "We need each other". Each one of us is playing an important role in this life.
In our chapter, we wanted to end the year with something special, we wanted to have a different end. We wanted our last meeting to be different. So, we will have Charles E. Gulledge III (ASHRAE Society President for 2020-2021). Mr. Charles, is a PE, Fellow ASHRAE, HBDP, LEED AP.
Mr. Charles is an amazing speaker, I had the opportunity to attend his presentation during our region 1 CRC.
Unfortunately, we will continue with the virtual meetings. We will post the announcement and open the registration soon. Please keep your eye open on our website http://www.ashraenortheast.org/ I hope to see everyone at the meeting.
We are still looking for volunteers to join our board. We have a few positions and chairs that we are looking for our members to help with.

I wish you all to stay safe.

The year was 1958 and the following were the officers of the Empire State Capital Chapter of ASHAE:
President: E.J. Mahoney
1st Vice President: M.E. Waddell
2nd Vice President: B.E. Mullen
Secretary-Treasurer: E.E. Phillips
BOG: W.A. Smith, F.R. Foote and J.L. Ottenheimer
The December 10,1958 meeting was held at Fords’ Tavern in Albany, NY. President Mahoney announced that the ASHAE-ASRE merger had been passed by formal vote of the voting membership of both societies. The local ASRE chapter is to be extended a formal invitation to join us at our February meeting.
The speaker was Miss Beatrice A. Hicks, President of Newark Controls who gave a talk on the effects of shock, vibration, acceleration and temperature on the design of air craft controls.
That is the way it was on December 10, 1958.

NORTHEAST CHAPTER HISTORY REPORT
What makes 100%? What does it mean to give more than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who give more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give more than 100%.? Here is a mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: If you use the following:
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=10, K=11, L=12, M=13, N=14, O=15, P=16, Q=17, R=18, S=19, T=20, U=21, V=22, W=23, X=24, Y=25, Z=26
And look how far ass kissing will take you.
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%
Now you can conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard Work and Knowledge will get you close and Attitude will get you there, it is the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top. You now know why Politicians are where they are. (Thanks to Eric Edman, Boston Chapter Historian for this mathematical formula)
Chapter History & Past Presidents night is planned for December. The Life Members night is planned for April. More details will be forthcoming as the dates approach. It is possible that Society President Chuck Gulledge will be attending one of our meetings.
