In the past few days the Arizona Corporation Commission has been discussing the review of energy efficiency programs and their validity in the future.
Thanks to the efforts and donations by both individual chapter members and businesses, the ASHRAE Tucson Chapter was able to crush our local chapter research promotion goal of $5,500 by over 210% with one month still to go!
Exceeding this goal, which is set forth by our Region and Society, demonstrates our chapter's commitment to ASHRAE research and growth and the building industry as a whole. Funds raised go towards ASHRAE research projects, development of ASHRAE standards which we all use, education programs and sustainability projects. Additionally, our chapter was able to continue to donate some of the funds raised to the chapter endowment set up in 2012 which will continue do donate to our chapter RP goal in perpetuity.
In addition to our chapter RP goal, we were able to donate another $2,000 for scholarships to (2) U of A engineering students and local schools science and technology programs.
Thanks for all your hard work!!

Harry Benton "Ben" Glover Jr., born in Tucson on June 12, 1927 at the Stork's Nest, passed away December 25, 2011. He was a third generation Tucsonan whose grandfather packed mules for General Crook at Fort Lowell. As a child, Ben loved to visit San Diego and see his grandparents. He played the ukulele, the coronet, and the trombone in a swing band, appearing at the Blue Moon, and other disreputable locations. After graduating from Tucson High at age seventeen, he joined the Navy. He did his basic training in San Diego and then served in Chicago at a hospital from 1945-1947 (he said this experience was like the movie Captain Newman M.D.). He graduated from the U of A in 1951 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. In his career as an engineer, he was part of the team that built many of Tucson's major structures, including the U of A's Bioscience West, the Udall Center, and the Tucson Community Center. In essence he built his own monument. As a private consultant, he specialized in city pools and churches. He wanted kids to swim in comfort. Ben served as a member of the Board of Directors of the Arizona Historical Society for two terms from 1993-1998. Ben will be missed for his sense of humor and love of life. He was preceded in death by his wife, June Glover and his sister, Madeline Berkenpas. He is survived by his wife, Muriel Keegan-Glover of Tucson; his daughter, Derith (Tom) Glover-Meyer of Pembroke, Mass.; his son, Jeffrey Glover of San Diego; his daughter, Lorraine (Michael) Ray of Tucson and grandchildren, Neal Meyer, Kevin Meyer, Stephen Meyer, Charlie Meyer, and Julie Ray.
