Female engineers are still rare in the field of building engineering, but for the first time in history, the venerable American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has elected a female president.
Lynn G. Bellenger, P.E., a partner with Pathfinder Engineers & Architects of Rochester, New York, took up her role at the ASHRAE annual conference in New Mexico held June 26-30.
Her presidential theme is to focus on “Modelling a Sustainable World.”
ASHRAE was founded in 1895 and is an international organization of 50,000 people that sets standards for building systems in North America, including Canada.
