A Message From The President

"When I moved back home to Nova Scotia, just over two years ago, I found another home with the ASHRAE Halifax Chapter. The members met me with open arms and allowed me the opportunity to help improve our local community and myself through our monthly meetings, technical talks, and hosting Build Green Atlantic (one of the most successful sustainability conferences in Eastern Canada). I hope to build on the success of past presidents, like Jarid Wilson and Daniel Bourque, to grow our chapter into the most successful chapter in Canada."
