The President's Corner

Edwin Porter 

I am honored to start the 2017-2018 year as President. The Cincinnati chapter, a member of ASHRAE Region 5, has a long history of strong participation and support of ASHRAE. As our organization continues to grow, the footprint has become more global and serves a greater variety of professionals than ever before. I am excited to be part of this progress and look forward to serving this chapter and organization.

I would like to thank Dave Deger for his leadership and support as president for the 2016-2017 ASHRAE year. During Dave’s presidency, our chapter celebrated many successes including an increase in membership and student participation, exceeding our research promotion goal, and welcoming guests from all over the United States and even as far away as London!

Our first meeting of the year will be slightly different than years past. We are kicking off with a joint meeting between ASHRAE and the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) covering the WELL Building Standard. Phil Williams and Dana Pillai from DELOS will present on the standard, which focuses on human health and wellness. The standard was developed by combining engineering, scientific, and medical research. The meeting will be held at Hixson (659 Van Meter St. Cincinnati, OH 45202) on Tuesday, October 24, 2017 starting at 5:30 PM with dinner at 6:00 PM and the presentation starting at 6:45 PM. Free on-site parking is included in the lot north of the building. Please register online at the following link:


Each month we strive to select meeting topics that are valuable and relevant to all in our local membership including engineers, contractors, owners and product reps among others.
