Welcome Message

Welcome to the Ottawa Valley Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). We are open for business!

I’m incredibly excited to be able to celebrate this new chapter year with you all. While there are challenges that we will face, there has never been a better team (meaning all of our ASHRAE OVC) to take these on, and champion our industry into a wonderful season.

We have a storied history. There have been many ebbs and flows over the course of our chapter’s past. This current situation has unique elements, but it will only serve to help us find better and more sustainable ways to ensure that our membership is well served, educated and prepared to move HVAC/R forward.

Founded in 1894, ASHRAE is an international organization of 54,000 persons. Its sole objective is to advance, through research, standards writing, publishing and continuing education, the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration (HVAC&R) to serve humanity and promote a sustainable world.

We will continue to host our meetings (albeit virtually for the remainder of the 2020) on the third Tuesday of the month. We will also continue to update our membership on technical sessions, presentations, and all manner of engagement, throughout the year. Please be sure to stay tuned for information regarding all the options for you, your teammates, your friends and family to participate.

To begin our year, Brian Monk will be speaking on Filtration for High Performance Buildings. I’m truly thrilled to have the opportunity to have Brian address the OVC. A dynamic presenter, with a wealth of knowledge, we’re fortunate to be able to use this modified year to celebrate some of the best speakers in the ASHRAE community.

As stated, we have a new set of pending triumphs for our chapter year. I ask that you all look at your reasons to ‘ASHRAE’, and help to celebrate the dedicated team that will help to give you the best possible experience as a member. Our communique will follow, but I wanted to make sure that you all know just how much we value you as a member of our group.

The Ottawa Valley Chapter has always had a community focus, and we will continue to work diligently to ensure that we all grow in the years ahead.

Should there be any questions, thoughts, or concerns, please feel free to reach out to any of our board or executive.

I hope that this finds you all well!
Adam Moons - Master Group
2020-2021 OVC President
