Welcome to our new, monthly discussion forum series, called The IAQ Club, modeled after the popular American institution, the community book club.
How it works:
Each month, we will make available one pre-recorded video presentation from a past MIAQC event. We will then host an informal discussion forum with the original presenter or other knowledgeable moderator, during which attendees can ask specific questions and engage in general conversation about the topic. Like a book club, it is recommended, but not required, that you watch the video prior to the discussion forum.
Participation in the IAQ Club is free for members in good standing (dues current) of the Maine Indoor Air Quality Council, and just $25 for nonmembers. Participants get advance access to the recorded education session, as well as entry into the live, discussion forum for that topic.
Registration for each monthly forum is required.
Next Forum: May 18, 2021
How Ventilation is Critical to Improving the Human Condition in the Built Environment
Discussion Forum: Tuesday, May 18th at 4:00 p.m.
Nick Agopian, Vice President of Sales & Marketing, RenewAire, Waunakee Wisconsin
About this Program:
As we continue to build tighter, more heavily insulated homes, we are learning that significant levels of air pollutants can be trapped inside. With Americans spending approximately 90 percent of their time indoors where the air quality can be up to five times worse than outdoor air, we must design effective ventilation systems with trusted, accurate product performance. Presenter will explain why you should be concerned and what you can do to ensure healthier homes, including selecting certified ventilation products.
