ASHRAE Selects Top Five 'New Faces'
  ASHRAE has selected its top five nominees for this year's New Faces of Engineering program. The New Faces program is intended to promote the accomplishments of young engineers by highlighting their engineering contributions and the resulting impact on public welfare. The program, which is part of the National Engineers Week initiative, targets engineers 30 and younger. ASHRAE created New Faces in 2003, when it served as lead society for National Engineers Week. ASHRAE will submit the names of the five nominees to the National Engineers Week Committee. The top nominees from each engineering society represented on the National Engineers Week committee will appear in USA Today during National Engineers Week, Feb. 17–23. ASHRAE’s top New Face will be posted on during that week.

Travel Award Helps Further Careers of Recipients
Ronsse Zakula
  Recipients of the College of Fellows’ Graduate Student Travel Award say the program helped spur their interest in ASHRAE and furthered their knowledge in their areas of research. Lauren M. Ronsse, Ph.D., a lecturer in acoustics at Columbia College Chicago, has twice benefitted from the award, most recently by attending the 2012 ASHRAE Winter Conference. There, she was able to meet with fellow students and even have lunch with an ASHRAE Fellow. Another recipient, Tea Zakula, a doctoral candidate at Massachusetts Institute of Technology, also took part in the 2012 Winter Conference. There, she attended technical committee meetings.

Free ASHRAE Session at AHR Expo Focuses on Acoustics
  The question of why a space is quiet or noisy will be examined in a free ASHRAE session held as part of the 2013 Winter Conference. The session, "Basics of HVAC Noise Control," takes place at the concurrent AHR Expo from 2–3:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 29, in Room C147 of the Dallas Convention Center. ASHRAE Winter Conference registration is not required to attend and no badge is needed. “This session addresses common issues to improve acumen for sound and vibration,” said Erik Miller-Klein, P.E., SSA Acoustics, LLP, Seattle, “the idiosyncrasies of selecting fans that optimize acoustic and energy performance for improved system design and the physics of sound that explains the performance and limitations of silencers and acoustic louvers.”
