Please join us for our monthly meeting of the membership. Each meeting begins with a short networking period, followed by introductions and chapter announcements. The technical presentation is the main portion of the meeting. Have an extra interest in the topic, or just need more professional development credits? Join us early for the technical session. 

This month's topics:

  • Technical Session: Applied Acoustics
    • Check-in Begins: 9:45 AM 
    • Tech Session: 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
    • Presentation Description: Everything you wanted to know about acoustics. Acoustics can be a point or two in LEED V4. This is now a prerequisite for LEED for schools. While often misunderstood, the subject of acoustics is covered in an AHRI standard 885, including a spreadsheet for standardized calculations. We will cover the current standards as well as the recent change to Discharge Sound reporting for VAV terminals, which will require Engineering specifications to be updated.

      Presenter:  Dan Int-Hout – Distinguished Lecturer, Chief Engineer Krueger 

  • Main Presentation: Connections - 1973-Present
    • Check-in Begins: 11:00 AM 
    • Tech Session: 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
    • Presentation Description: Highlighting developments from 1973 until the present, Dan will present technical achievements, standards updates, and ASHRAE Research projects that all converged into an understanding and technical validation of modern approaches to comfort, energy, and building designs. The idea for the talk comes from our recent Presidential member’s them, and caused Dan to his experience over the years through a number of technical paths the he has been involved in.
