President’s Message

Photo of David EdenburnDear ASC members,

In my first message as in-coming president I would like to thank all of the Singapore Chapter members for your support during the past year and will be counting on your support of ASC in the coming year.

Under Patrick Ho's guidance we had a very good year with good participation at our events. This looks to continue with exceptional support for the DL seminar on 25 April and the golf event on 18 May. The golf outing was so well received that we had to close the booking.

Some ask: “Why should I Join ASC?”. Currently only about half the ASHRAE members in Singapore belong to the Singapore chapter. To me, the true value of belonging to ASHRAE is in the chapter membership. Our new CTTC chair will be organizing a full slate of technical talks over the next year. All should try to attend. These technical seminars are a big benefit of being an ASC member. Also the social events such as the annual D&apm;D, the annual Chinese New Year’s celebration and the aforementioned golf outing. Attending just a few of these events more than covers the cost of chapter membership. Add to that the inestimable value of meeting with your clients, suppliers and peers in the Singapore industry, and why would anyone not join ASC? Our student chapters continues to grow with about half the tertiary schools in Singapore. Our goal in the coming year will be to continue this growth both in the number of student branches and number of students in each.

Our student branches continue to grow with about half the tertiary schools in Singapore. Our goal in the coming year will be to continue this growth both in the number of student branches and number of students in each.

Last year we had very good growth in both the chapter and in student membership We plan to continue this trend. We will have an ambitious schedule in the corning year. I hope you will all continue your participation to make the 2018-2019 term a success.

Thank you all for your support.
