ASHRAE installs leadership slate

ASHRAE installed new officers and directors at its 2009 Annual Conference held June 20-24.

The new president is Gordon V. R. Holness, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, Life Member, consulting engineer, Grosse Pointe Shores, MI. His presidential theme, Sustaining Our Future by Rebuilding Our Past, addresses energy efficiency in existing buildings.        

“The vast majority of buildings that will exist in the year 2030 exist today,” Holness said. “If we are to have a material impact on overall energy use, it is through renovation of existing building stock. While existing buildings present great challenges, they offer us a greater opportunity to significantly impact our overall national energy demand, reduce our dependence upon imported oil and gas and minimize our carbon footprint. If ASHRAE is looking to build a sustainable future, we can see the foundations of that right now.”

Other officers installed for a one-year term are:
    * President-Elect: Lynn Bellenger, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, partner, Pathfinder Engineers, Rochester, NY.
    * Treasurer: Ronald “Ron” Jarnagin, staff scientist, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, WA.
