In addition to keeping busy at work, Mr. Swann is active both in the engineering profession and in other pursuits. He is currently the President of the Engineers Club of Philadelphia, and is active on several Technical Committees within ASHRAE* including TC 9.11 – Cleanrooms, TC 9.10 – Laboratories, TC 7.2 – Design-Build, TC 7.1 – Integrated Building Design, TC 2.8 – “Green Buildings” and TC 1.7 – Business and Legal Education. He has been a contributing author to ASHRAE’s “Survival Guide to Design-Build”, ASHRAE’s “Green Guide” and several Chapters in ASHRAE’s Technical Handbooks. He has been on ASHRAE’s Distinguished Lecturer roster since 2005 and speaks frequently both in the US and abroad. On a personal front, Mitch exercises his love of music and art (including a 4000 CD music collection) as a Board Member of the Painted Bride Art Center (Philadelphia) and of the West Philadelphia Cultural Alliance and dedication to civic engagement as a Board member, and former Chair, of The Enterprise Center Community Development Corp. So he’s got both the left and right brain in operation as the situation requires.
