ASHRAE Presidential Lecture
"Adapt Today to Shape Tomorrow" by Tim Wentz, ASHRAE President
Our Society theme this year is Adapt Today to Shape Tomorrow, which is based on the goal in our Society’s Strategic Plan to adapt. This goal relates to my personal history of moving from a slide rule in my early college days to a hand calculator and now a computer or smartphone as an example of the challenges and opportunities inherent in adapting to new technology.
This presentation will describe our Society’s theme for the year with a special emphasis on how the initiatives and directives found within the theme will help our members adapt to our rapidly changing industry and help make them more effective, efficient and productive.
