ATLANTA (June 30, 2021) – ASHRAE is pleased to introduce its 2021-22 Society president, executive committee officers and directors.
ASHRAE’s 2021-22 president is Mick Schwedler, P.E., Fellow ASHRAE, LEED AP. During his inaugural presidential address, Schwedler announced the new Society theme will be "Personal Growth. Global Impact. Feed the Roots." The theme explores ASHRAE’s expansive root system from the Society’s founding, through its extraordinary global growth and impact to the built environment. Three sets of roots were established to help members grow – member-to-member connections, grassroots chapters and regions, and technology.
"This Society Year, we will examine how ASHRAE cultivates its deep, widespread, and strong roots to collectively provide global benefits today as well as for future generations," said Schwedler. "Most importantly, we ask for your active participation in helping someone else grow."
Schwedler is an Applications Engineer at Trane in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
