Louisville ASHRAE September Chapter Meeting (Virtual)
Louisville ASHRAE September Chapter Meeting (Virtual)
Thursday, September 17, 2020
Please join us on Thursday, September 17, 2020 for our second chapter meeting of the 2020-2021 ASHRAE year

This chapter meeting will be held virtually

Topic: Presidential Theme – Industry 4.0

Presenter: Charles “Chuck” E. Gulledge III, P.E., HBDP, LEED AP, 2020-21 ASHRAE President

Charles E. Gulledge III, P.E., HBDP, LEED AP, Fellow ASHRAE, is ASHRAE’s President for the 2020-21 term. Gulledge previously served on the ASHRAE Board of Directors as president-elect, treasurer, vice president and director-at-large. For his time and dedication to ASHRAE and the industry, he is the recipient of numerous awards including the Exceptional Service Award, Distinguished Service Award, Chapter Service Award, Regional Award of Merit, two ASHRAE Technology Awards and the Dan Mills Technology Award. His theme for the 2020-21 ASHRAE Society Year is “The ASHRAE Digital Lighthouse and Industry 4.0.” “Why should we engage in digital transformation? To gain a competitive advantage amongst our peers, position ourselves as the go-to resource for clients, improve margins, provide greater value, and attract and retain a digitally skilled workforce.”
In addition to his time served on the Board of Directors, Gulledge has served as chair of the Members Council and the President-Elect Advisory Committee, chair of the Finance Committee, chair of the Standards Membership Ad Hoc Committee, chair of the Development Committee for Fundraising, and as an ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer. He has held ASHRAE Society-level leadership roles on many standing committees, technical committees and presidential ad hoc committees. Gulledge’s theme focuses on reimagining the building industry and ASHRAE’s place in it by integrating not only industry segments, but also technology.
“Digital transformation is not simply associated with adopting new technical solutions. Knowledge needs to be captured and linked in such a way that ALL relevant stakeholders’ benefit. Doing so requires understanding of how to collect, store, and analyze data; so that it is insightful and actionable.” In addition to his contributions to ASHRAE, Gulledge’s career in HVAC spans over 36 years. He entered the industry as an engineer-in-training with Parsons Brinckerhoff Quade & Douglas, working on transit system infrastructure, vehicular tunnels and moveable swing-span bridges. Over his career, he has served the built world in the roles of a consulting engineer, municipal owner and design-build
contractor. Gulledge is currently a Senior Mechanical Engineer with Environmental Air Systems, LLC. He is registered as a professional engineer in the states of North Carolina, Georgia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Alabama and Virginia.
Gulledge’s comprehensive design, construction and operational portfolio covers a variety of market sectors; including transportation, commercial, educational, institutional, lodging, sports, mission critical, life sciences, healthcare, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, industrial, archival, historical, and hospitality.
Gulledge is a 1983 graduate of North Carolina State University with a Bachelor of Science in
Mechanical Engineering.

Louisville ASHRAE Chapter Update
Good Afternoon All
I wanted to send a short note from the BOG in regard to all the events and emails you may have been receiving from the chapter. Our annual fundraiser for Research Promotion (golf outing) was originally scheduled for this coming Monday (April 20), with a three-hour tech session prior.  This fundraiser has now been rescheduled for Monday, June 15th. Due to this rescheduling, we want to still have a PDH offering for you Monday,  It will start at 11:30am on “HVAC for Indoor Agriculture.” We have dedicated this meeting as a day of giving to support the chapter with a minimum $15.00 donation.  This donation can be completed online with our typical meeting registration process. A Skype link will then be sent to you prior to the meeting. There is an option to increase your donation if you would like.  If you do increase your donation, our chapter BOG would like to thank you up front, and we want you to know that we appreciate your assistance in reaching our goal. If you have not received the communication yet on Monday's Webinar please be on the look out for it later today. I would also like to inform you of a free webinar on Tuesday of next week about Reducing Infectious Disease Transmission with UVGI that can be found at the following link https://www.ashrae.org/professional-development/all-instructor-led-training/online-instructor-led-training/reducing-infectious-disease-transmission-with-uvgi. If our restrictions for meetings continue through May, we will plan on having that meeting via web conference as well.  So please be on the lookout for any updates in regard to the May meeting. If anyone has any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me or any of the BOG members. We will be more than happy to have any discussion or address an concerns you may have. I hope that you all stay safe and to see you on the Golf course in June.  
Justin Ost

March 2020 Louisville ASHRAE Meeting Cancellation Notice
March 2020 Louisville ASHRAE Meeting - CANCELLED

In the interest of public health and the health of our members, the March 2020 Louisville ASHRAE Chapter meeting has been cancelled due to increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19.

March 2020 Louisville ASHRAE Meeting - Revised Meeting Date
March 2020 Louisville ASHRAE Meeting - Revised Meeting Date
Friday March 20, 2020
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM
at The Blankenbaker
2713 Blankenbaker Rd.
Louisville, KY 40299

Speaker :: Tom Durkin - ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer
Topic :: Humidity Control With and Without Reheat
Durkin’s approach is that most applications do not need for designers to control humidity, rather just make sure it doesn’t get out of control. Humidity control can be active or passive, but it should never be ignored. This talk will explain low cost but highly effective solutions that work in all climate zones.

Louisville ASHRAE October Chapter Meeting (Virtual)
Louisville ASHRAE October Chapter Meeting (Virtual)

Wednesday, October 21, 2020
Please join us for the third chapter meeting of the 2020-2021 ASHRAE year!

This chapter meeting will be held virtually

Topic: Answers to the Biggest Questions About Aerosols, COVID-19 & HVAC Systems

On September 18th, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) appeared to acknowledge that coronavirus could be spread by aerosols. It posted guidance on its website listing aerosols among the ways the virus spreads and saying there was growing evidence the airborne particles can remain suspended and travel beyond 6 feet. But three days later, that guidance was gone. A note in its place said a draft had been posted in error and that the CDC was still working on the update. For several months now, science has backed up the claim that COVID-19 can and does spread through aerosols. 

Once the CDC, the WHO and other governing bodies acknowledge this, how will it effect our industry?
In this webinar, we will cover general questions about aerosols, their ability to transmit COVID-19, and ways to protect building occupants from aerosol transmission. The roles ventilation, filtration, and HVAC systems play in aerosol movement and transmission will also be discussed.

Presenter: Luke Powell, WELL AP, LEED AP, Vice President Air Equipment Company

Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Cost: $15

(1) PDH will be available

Registration Link: http://www.louisvilleashrae.com/default.asp?q_areaprimaryid=3&q_areasecondaryid=0&q_areatertiaryid=0&q_eventid=179

Registration Deadline:
 10/21 at 9:00 AM

A link to join the webinar will be sent out on the morning of 10/21
