Warren. S. Johnson – Recognition

Warren. S. Johnson – Receives an Award

Our namesake was included in this ceremony at the recent international conference.

ASHRAE Recognized the outstanding achievements and contributions of members to the Society and the built environment industry during its 2020 Winter Conference in Orlando.

“We congratulate each of ASHRAE’s Honors and Awards recipients for their leadership in advancing the future of our industry and our Society,” said 2019-20 ASHRAE President Darryl K. Boyce, P.Eng. The list included:

Pioneers of the Industry: Warren S. Johnson, 1847-1911, was posthumously awarded with ASHRAE Pioneers of Industry Award, recognizing deceased individuals who have made milestone contributions to the growth of HVAC&R. Johnson’s development of a multi-zone pneumatic control system helped to launch the building control industry.  

Our Online Newsletter

Congratulations if you are reading this 2020 Newsletter for the first time “Online”. The Dec. 2019 edition was the last to go out to all “In Print”.

You should have received an email reminding you that this online version was now available. If you did not, we need your current email address. (Send to: WSJSocietyEmails@gmail.com)

To those members for which we only have a postal address, a final “Post Card” went out to remind them of this change, and request their email address, or a print subscription fee. For more of the background on what led to this change, see our 2019 newsletters.

Biennial Reunion

Your Board is leaning toward a picnic type of gathering for our Fall 2020 biennial reunion. Keep mid-Sept. to early Oct. in mind for this event. It would probably be a catered meal in a pavilion near Milwaukee, include a short program/meeting, and allow most of the time for socializing with your old JCI friends.

This change in format is another result of the reduction in support we are finding from JCI.
