Welcome Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 Ottawa Valley Chapter season! We have a great line up of activities for the year even as we are not quite as close to normal as we have all hoped. This will be another non typical year as we are continue to face restrictions on what and how we can interact. I would like to thank Adam Moons for taking us through a difficult year in 2020-2021 as chapter President and all of the volunteers who gave their time and effort.

This year is going to have a lot of exciting new activities both online and in person as much as possible. We are also trying to balance this with what is responsible to our membership and our understanding of the most current public health guidelines. Chapter meetings will continue be virtual for the moment, but we will be starting to have activities both in person and virtual and it will be up to you to decide what you are comfortable with and we will do our best to help set in person boundaries based on comfort levels. Events will include our upcoming golf event and later on a virtual beer tasting.

We will also be bringing in more interaction to our virtual meetings and events to bring our members together to see each other and socialize and build those connections that we have been missing for so long. Our goal for the year is to bring in more connections and to show the benefits of being a part of this great community as we start to offer more events as the year takes off.

This year has a fantastic team of volunteers for all of our committees, who are bringing some new ideas and events to the membership. Many are new volunteers are joining us, stay tuned to hear more! We also welcome Evans Mutua to the executive as Secretary, and Ryan Dickinson and Celine Baribeau as President-Elec and Treasurer respectively. To the Board of Governors we are welcoming Jayson Bursill and Matthew Moore, who was involved with the London ASHRAE Chapter for about five years before he has joined us here. As well as welcoming back to the Board: Michael Swayne, Joe Della Valle, Trevor Thomson as well as Joel Primeau in the past-president role.

Thank you to all of our volunteers this year and thank you to the membership for staying involved and active with us though these transitions and new types of events, and we hope to see you all very soon, whether in person or virtually!
