History

Before the formation of the ASHRAE Bahrain Chapter, the ASHRAE members in Bahrain were facilitated by the Falcon Chapter, Dubai. Their emails related to seminars and other activities were a constant source of inspiration to establish a Chapter in Bahrain.

For this purpose, in March 2006, Mr. Tariq Malik travelled to Dubai to attend a seminar and to discuss with Mr. Bassel Anbari, then Falcon Chapter President, the possibility of forming an ASHRAE Chapter in Bahrain.

Mr. Bassel Anbari was pleased and encouraged the idea. He arranged a meeting with Mr. Ayman Altonany, Program Officer UNEP Bahrain, where initiating members met and formed a steering committee. The members of the steering committee were Mr. Tariq Malik, Mr. Ayman Altonany, Mr. Bader Salmein, Mr. Alan Millin, and Mr. Gareth Brown.

The steering worked hard under the guidance of Samir Traboulsi – then Director and Regional Chair, Region-at-Large; Dr. Walid Chakroun – then Sub-Region-A Chair; Bassel Anbari – then-President ASHRAE Falcon Chapter; Jeanie Kirksey – Regional Activities Coordinator at ASHRAE headquarters and the support of fellow engineers in Bahrain to make this dream come true. Due to post economic slowdown and local political situation, the chapter operation was slow down from 2009 till 2015.

ASHRAE Sub Region has given full support in the revival of the Bahrain chapter after pausing for almost 5 years. The chapter was reactivated with a mix of new and old faces on the Board of Directors.
