Nomination Letter


January 2, 2014

TO: Board of Directors Society Past Presidents
Council Members Society Past Executive Committee Members
Committee Chairs ASHRAE Staff Liaisons
Committee Vice Chairs  

Subject: Nominations for Standing Committees

Are you interested in serving on an ASHRAE standing committee?

Do you know someone else who may be interested in serving?

I am requesting your assistance in identifying qualified members to serve on our Society’s standing committees for the 2014-2015 year. One-third of the members of most committees rotate off each year; additionally, a new chair and vice chair must be appointed.

I encourage you to review those currently serving on Society committees as listed on the web site (www.ashrae.org/CurrentMembers) and submit any recommendations you may have. Click on the following link to submit your recommendations online:


You are also welcome to send your recommendations to Claire Neme at cneme@ashrae.org with a copy to me at thphoenix@mmpa.com.

If you would like to be considered for appointment to a committee or if you are rotating off a committee and would like another assignment, please feel free to nominate yourself. Except in special circumstances, it is preferable for a member to serve on only one Society standing committee at a time.

When submitting your recommendations, please include why you recommend an individual for service on a particular committee. Recommendations without that backup don’t provide sufficient information to match a candidate with an appropriate committee.

Deadline for Recommendations – February 14, 2014

For your reference, below is a list of committees to which I will be appointing members. All information you submit will remain confidential. Thank you.

Thomas H. Phoenix
