Hello New Jersey ASHRAE Members,
Winter is finally making its presence known and I hope this Thermogram finds you and your families healthy, safe, and warm as we push ahead (and out of the snow) to some hopefully warmer days. The holidays are well in the rearview mirror and it's hard to believe that we only have three more sessions in our slate for the 2020-2021 year. I have my fingers crossed that with warmer weather and continued advances in the treatment strategies of COVID-19 that we can still have our yearly golf outing in the summer.
I hope those of you who were able to join us last month for Dr. Stephanie Taylor's presentation enjoyed it as much as I did. It was an information packed session with some very engaging Q&A as well. To find out more about the topics discussed and her 40to60RH initiative, please feel free to visit 40to60RH.com.
As mentioned in last month's Thermogram we understand that having the monthly technical session during the day may be difficult for some members to schedule around. To help ensure all members have access to the content, we will be posting all the sessions we have been granted approval on to our website at NJASHRAE.COM -> Presentations, for your access and use.
The ASHRAE Epidemic Task Force has released an updated building readiness guide which can be found at the following link from the main ASHRAE.org website:
I am very excited for the technical session this month. Our chapter will be participating in a joint meeting with Philadelphia ASHRAE and be welcoming Professors Forrest Meggers and Dorit Aviv who will be speaking to us on "CHAOS (Cooling and Heating for Architecturally Optimized Systems)".
