Remembering Dave Palty

It is with heavy hearts that the Tucson Chapter announce that our immediate Chapter President and Region X RVC for Government Affairs Dave Palty passed away over this past Labor day weekend.  Anyone who knew Dave knew that his passion for life was infectious and it permeated thru everything he was involved with be that work, family, ASHRAE, etc. Dave was truly one of the good guys and his ASHRAE FAMILY will miss him.

Dave's family has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Dave Palty Memorial fund.  This fund will establish an endowment or scholarship in Dave's name to continue his work in bringing young leaders into the industry.

FIrst of all I want to welcome back all of our awesome ASHRAE Tucson Chapter members and thank you for all your support over the years! I would also like to thank our 2018-2019 Board of Governors and Committees for all of their hard work this past year and for their continued support this coming year. We look forward to another fun-filled and informative year!

There are some great programs and social events scheduled this year and we look forward to seeing you at every one of them. We are also very much looking forward to hosting the Region X CRC right here in Tucson next year. Keep an eye out for more details on this big event.

Many in our leadership team attended  the joint Region IX & X CRC in San Diego last week, where our team brought home numerous awards for their outstanding service. It was another great year for the Tucson Chapter. Congratulations to all of the award winners!

I am Dave Brown and I look forward to serving as your Tucson Chapter President for Society Year 2019-2020. The support of its members and volunteers and staff helps ASHRAE fulfill its mission to serve humanity by advancing the arts and sciences of heating, ventilation, air conditioning, refrigeration, and their allied fields, and I am proud to be a part of that mission. So to coin a phrase from our outstanding 2018-2019 President, Dave Palty, "STAY ASHRAE AWESOME", and I hope to see you all at our next meeting.
