I hope everyone is enjoying the warm weather and time with your family and friends this summer!
As usual with Chicago weather, we are dealing with the extremes — this time the heat and humidity. I’m sure your HVAC systems are being put to the test and running constantly with the heat. It’s important to keep our tenants comfortable, but it can often be a challenge and our equipment can be strained and fail. Our members are your best resources for these situations. The Associate members are the best in the business and are there for you even in a pinch. Don’t forget to check the website (www.chiefengineer.org) as well as your Quick Shopper that was sent out in June to find all industry contacts. Your fellow Active members are a great resource as well. The relationships you build with others in the organization can help when you need references, advice or recommendations. Our organization values the strong bonds we build in the industry. We are all part of the same proud industry family.
While it’s hard to imagine now with temperatures in the 90s, don’t that forget winter is basically around the corner. When referencing our Associate members for summer repairs, now is a good time to contact them for maintenance on your boilers and heating systems. There is a lot of maintenance that needs to be done on these systems and now is the perfect time to service them. This process ensures that our equipment is ready to go when the weather changes. Like I mentioned above, climate control is a very important aspect of our job, solidifying tenant comfort and satisfaction.
We are well into the planning stages of the 78th annual golf outing on September 14th at Cog Hill Golf Course! We are on pace for another record-setting outing. Be sure to get your reservations in as soon as possible — the courses are filling up fast! Email [email protected] to reserve your foursomes and sponsorships. This is one of my favorite events of the year! I can’t wait to see you all out on the course. A big shout-out to the golf committee for all of the hours of planning that goes into this event. As our biggest event of the year, it takes countless hours and effort to execute this event successfully. Thank you all for your dedication.
I hope you continue to have a wonderful summer!
