Thanks to IVY Tech for hosting, and all who were able to come out in October for our joint meeting with USGBC.  Our speakers gave great presentations on ASHRAE 90.1 and spoke on the importance for energy conservation in our building systems as the codes become stricter and stricter.   This year’s calendar is shaping up to be a great mix of fun events and technical meeting to learn more about ASHRAE and how it relates to the world around us.
