ASHRAE’s April 17 webcast, Buildings in Balance: IEQ and Energy Efficiency, was watched by an estimated 9,579 viewers worldwide. ASHRAE chapters, companies and other organizations were among the 611 group sites around the world that hosted the IEQ Webcast. Viewers from dozens of countries and six continents accessed the three-hour live broadcast via the Internet. Hundreds of viewers also took advantage of the online archived replay of the program that was made available for two weeks following the live webcast.
Work Continues on Legionellosis Standard
ASHRAE is continuing work on what would be the first set of standardized requirements specific to the building industry for management of the risks associated with amplified growth of and exposure to Legionella. Standard 188P, Legionellosis: Risk Management for Building Water Systems, currently under development, will identify risk factors for growth and exposure along with measures to mitigate that risk. The standard is intended to help facility managers/owners understand how to evaluate the design and operation of their building water systems to reduce the risk of Legionellosis.
Turkish Chapter Becomes ASHRAE's 175th
In less than a year, the Turkish Section has been chartered as the Turkish Chapter, becoming ASHRAE’s 175th chapter. After the Turkish Section was chartered, the members worked towards recruiting new members to become a chapter. They used social media and in-person visits to local Turkish HVAC&R associations to promote membership. Over the year, the section more than tripled in size from 25 to 83 members. With the necessary signatures of members in good standing, the chartering of the Turkish Chapter was approved at the 2014 ASHRAE Winter Conference in New York.

Some 35 teachers and students from Flat Rock Middle School in Tyrone, Ga., recently were introduced to ASHRAE, and a possible future career in HVAC&R engineering, through a tour of the Society’s headquarters in Atlanta. During the tour, Mike Vaughn, manager of ASHRAE research and technical services, provided an overview of ASHRAE; the 2008 renovation of the headquarters building; sustainable features of the building; awards the facility has earned; and his job as an engineer and how to prepare to be one beginning in middle school.
