History Report October 2018

Past President’s Night was held at our last meeting. We were pleased to have 11 Past Presidents in attendance.

A couple of goals I have this year as Historian is to update our President’s photo board and add a lot of content to our website, including our archive of photo albums we recently had scanned.

If you have any ASHRAE related events coming up that would have historical value, please contact me and I’ll ensure it gets documented.

Mark Henry - Chapter Historian

Mark Henry - Chapter Historian 2017-2018


I was born and raised in small town Saskatchewan.  I moved to Edmonton 17 years ago and continue to be a Saskatchewan Roughrider fan.  A nice bonus is that this annoys Tom Jacknisky.

After graduating from NAIT, I started out on the tools before joining a mechanical engineering firm for 10 years.  I’ve been on the sales side with my current employer for the last four years plus.

I’ve enjoyed my time on the Board as co-chair of Student Activities and the past few years as Chapter Historian.   I’m looking forward to my new position in the fall as Secretary.

I’ve been an ASHRAE member since 2011.  I’ve always enjoyed seeing everyone at the meetings/events, enjoying a good meal, and our speakers and lecturers.  It’s been great to spend time with other people in the industry.
