Peter Litwinow, Historian
Hello. I’m Peter Litwinow hand have been the SAC historian since 2018, and will be the historian until 2023, the year the Liberals will no longer be in power. I was raised in Biggar Saskatchewan(go riders) and received a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology from SAIT, Kelsey campus. I have been in the Building Automation industry since graduation, working with various companies across Canada and Overseas.
I have been an ASHRAE Student member, an affiliate, and am a current member. I was the SAC President in 2008, and held many Chapter chairs during my BOG tenure.
My first exposure to ASHRAE was during college when as student members, we were given the ASHRAE Fundamentals handbook as one of our working text books. What struck me was that an independent organization would not only have its own technical publications, but that those publications would also be used as learning curriculum. We used that text book more than any other, as it covered all basic engineering principles relating to HVAC. At that time, I did not realize the equally important role the organization would play in building my future career relationships. I count it as a privilege to now serve as the local Chapter Historian.
