international session-special lecture(特別講演)
ASHRAE Presidential Talk


Extending our Global Community is my presidential theme for this upcoming Society year. Extend is one of the goals established in our Strategic Plan. Over the next 12 months, I am excited to focus this theme on three directives: extend our global community; extend our technological horizons; and extend our value to members. Extending our global community will acknowledge our interconnectedness worldwide and embrace our shared needs and objectives.
We will also extend our technological horizons and focus on building performance beyond traditional commercial buildings. Extending our technological tools and knowledge to address needs in residential buildings and in developing economies empowers our Society to have a greater global impact.
It is extremely important that our efforts increase ASHRAE’s value to members throughout the world. Innovation must flow in all directions across continental boundaries if the Society is going to achieve its mission of advancing the arts and science of HVAC&R to serve humanity and create a more sustainable world.
