​President's Message 

Dear Members and Friends,

It is my honor and pleasure to be the President of ASHRAE Macao Chapter for the year 2017-2018.  Since we chartered the chapter in 2016 and earmarked the 2nd year journey with great success in many fronts.  I take this opportunity to extend my gratitude to all officers, governors, committees and members for the continuous support to the growth of the Macao Chapter.

2017-2018 is another great year packed with several activities such as technical seminar, joint symposium, website and social media launch which had elevated the ASHRAE Macao Chapter position to the next level in local and regional.  The first joint symposium on BIM – Building Information Modelling was a great success in honor of our partnership with AEM (The Macao Institution of Engineers), CIBSE HK Branch and HKIE. Equally the join technical seminar between Hong Kong and Macao Chapters on High Performance Healthcare Facilities was a rewarding experience to members and industry professionals.

We successfully formed YEA (Young Engineers in ASHRAE) committee and made first representation to YLI (YEA Leadership International) conference in 2017 as a first step towards engaging local young engineers to expose into the international platform for sharing and learning.

We have also established the Sustainability Committee in the current year and celebrated the ASHRAE’s Global Give Back Week (April 22nd to 28th, 2018) through organizing a technical seminar on Building Energy Quotient (bEQ) and sharing of energy efficiency and sustainability case studies by local industry professionals.  I am pretty confident that introduction of bEQ platform in Macau will create value to improve the environmental performance of the buildings in the long run.

Macau chapter also marked a significant growth in membership, specifically on young engineers and hope that we could further bring student groups together in the future to benefit from the skill and knowledge from industry leaders as well as from ASHRAE Society.

I am very excited to see over 200 guests to come together and celebrate our 2nd anniversary dinner and hope this will create a platform for networking with friends, sharing and learning to grow together.

Last but not least, I take this opportunity to convey my gratitude to the organizing committee, sponsors, supporting organizations and well-wishers for the success of tonight’s event as you are the backbone to make this a grand success.
Thank you very much indeed!

President (2017-2018)
