    PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE Hello Everyone: Another milestone has been met with the 2017 product exhibition and Symposiums. I want to send a special thank you to the commit-

    tee that performed seamlessly to pro- vide the members and Affiliates a great day, thanks to Ernie Rink, Steve Ziga, Don Nowicke and Mike Snyder. We also would like to thank Jeff Cro- zier, Mike Radio and Sean Hughes of ASHRAE for participating in our Sym- posium. We have always recognized other Professional Societies here in Philadelphia and finding that common ground to develop and enhance our member’s education is a great motiva- tor. We hope their members also en- joyed walking the show floor and found it worth their valuable time in coming out to the Clarion and attending their own Symposium with 4 great topics. Another person by the name of Marc Pisarek needs recognition for his ef- forts to set up the on-line registration for the show and Seminars. Steve Ziga took on the challenge this year to provide 4 very interesting topics

    and excellent speakers. I was thrilled to see the classroom full of knowledge seeking Engineers and designers. I have taken many notes on the day of the show and will review with the com- mittee some improvements that I think will be implemented in 2019. This will ensure the timing of registered guest walking the show floor. We also sent a note to all the manufac- turer’s reps asking for comments. Thank you for all the positive feedback and suggestions. We will implement many of your thoughts into the next show as well. In closing I invite our members to join us at our meetings and feel the passion that we have in providing you all the best information, education and friend- ship possible. Best regards Mike

    Mike Panco

    How many of you attended the Product Show? The show had a wealth of

    knowledge at your disposal. Where else can you to ask questions and

    compare products? If you missed the show, you also missed a chance to

    win one of the door prizes.

    There were eight seminars available, four from ASPE and four from ASHRAE.

    I attended the four ASPE seminars and found each seminar well attended.

    I was informed the ASHRAE seminars were also well attended.

    At the November 16th dinner meeting, we will hear about Leak Detection

    and Sub-metering from Dennis Carapezza from H2O Degree. The dinner

    meeting will be at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Cherry Hill, NJ.

    I look forward to seeing you there and do not forget to bring any issues from a project that

    you need or want a second opinion. The dinner meeting will have many designers, engi-

    neers, and representatives available to assist.

    News flash, the June 7 tour will be to ThermOmegaTech’s facility in Warminster, PA.
