Lindenau, Bozeman, Mont.; Terra Moran, materials engineer, Imperial Oil, Calgary, Alberta;  Mary Peterson, project engineer in the commercial solutions division, 3M, Saint Paul, Minn.; and Martin Reaves, founder, Monolithic, Bozeman, Mont.

Congrats to all the team members!


Help Request for ASHRAE Winter Meeting Next Week

Big Sky ASHRAE supporters,

Kevin Amende will be taking 13 students from Montana State University to Chicago for the ASHRAE Winter Meeting and AHR Expo late next week.  The students will be attending technical seminars, student programming, tours, Region IX dinner, welcome party, and spending a day at the AHR Expo.  There are other events going on during ASHRAE that would benefit both potential employers and the students.  If any of you have tickets or invites to any such events you would like to share with the students, please let Kevin know.

Thank You
