On December 4th 1973 the Christmas Dance was held at the Tudor Inn, previously called the Pineland Pavilion. The attendance was record at over 140 persons.

In January the meeting topic was "Fire and Smoke Control in High Rise Buildings". The discussion took the form of a panel with various speakers.

February's meeting was preceeded by a tour of the University of Ottawa Central Heating Plant. The evening meeting topic was the "Human Side of Control Monitoring" with speaker Bill Vaughan of the University of Ottawa.

Jacques Guenette of Volcano Ltd. was the speaker for March, his topic being "Thermal Liquid Systems". This invloved the use of mineral oils rather than water as a heat transfer medium.

In April the topic was "Chapter Regional Conference", because Ottawa was the host. This was held at the Skyline Hotel spanning April 17-20, 1974.
