8:00 - 8:30
Radio Joe will be starting things off, running the center ring and wrapping things up. This is going to be our biggest and best event to date. Still small enough to be an intimate, personalized learning experience but big enough to draw the top dogs from around the country. The highlight of our year!
8:30 - 10:00
Mark Hernandez, Ph.D.
Dr. Hernandez has been a workhorse bringing “Research to Practice” through his work at the University of Colorado. He led the Microbiology of the Built Environment program that was funded by Sloan and EPA. The data collected for that project will be changing how we look at indoor environments for years to come. Much of the work behind the optical recognition capabilities of the InstaScope by DetectionTek was done at Dr. Hernandez’s lab. His Keynote Presentation looks at the various research projects and new technologies he sees changing how we do our work. We are thrilled to have one of the leading researchers in the world to help us set the table and look toward what is coming down the road as we “Navigate Changing Industries”.
10:15 - 11:00
Carl Grimes is the most informed “Research to Practice” professional I know. He is smart, has met and talked to everyone and most important he has been there and done that. Carl goes to every major program, conference and event related to IAQ and healthy buildings worldwide. He has an amazing ability to grasp complex issues and explain them in plain English. At times you will find yourself catching up but the journey to the destination is always a joy with Carl. We have asked Carl to report back to attendees about the latest “Research to Practice” information from around the world and to update us on his latest adventure the Hayward Score. Carl will tell us what people on the cutting edge worldwide are doing and talking about.
11:00 - 11:30
We just have to keep bringing this gentleman back for our attendees. Nobody is more on the leading edge of “Research to Practice” when it comes to working with the medical community, children and indoor environments. Luke has been helping to change lives for the better for many years and will update us on the school work they are doing at Children’s Mercy Hospital KC and give us a quick update on what the rest of the program is doing. Nobody is more on top of these vital topics than our good friend and colleague Luke Gard; they are doing the work of the future today!
11:30 - 12:00
Mike will be premiering a new presentation he has been working on called, “Risk Communication and Conflict Resolution- Resolving IEQ Emergencies”. This subject can be one of the toughest assignments for IEP's and restoration pros. We have been assured by Mike that "like all my sessions, it kicks ass". Mike is New Jersey strong and we have a nice contingent of NJ attendees coming as well.
12:00 - 1:30
Lunch & Exhibits
1:30 - 2:30
May Dooley & Sal La Duca & Martine Davis
The Baubiology Team is going to talk to us about a few issues we do not talk enough about. We have asked May and Sal to talk about and demonstrate how they handle Electromagnetic Frequencies (EMF’s) related IEQ issues. This is a topic that does not always get much attention but continues increase as we become more interconnected. We keep adding EMF’s to the indoor environment yet we do not know much about how they affect the health of occupants. What we do know is how to minimize the potential for health effects and that is what May and Sal will show and tell us! Martine will be adding to the Baubioligists presentations with some interesting thoughts on issues with Heat Recovery Ventilation (HRV) and Energy Recovery Ventilation (ERV) equipment. She has been finding various IEQ related issues with this equipment and will share her findings with us.

2:30 - 3:00
Mike is at ground zero of the Texas hurricane aftermath. He is also an attorney that specializes in working with restoration contractors and IAQ professionals. We asked him to say a few words about the state of the industry from the legal perspective. Mike has vast experience with industry standards and is a Vice President of the Indoor Air Quality Association whatever he decides to tell us will be something we should all pay attention to.
3:15 - 3:45
As the Chairman of the IAQA Government Affairs Committee Cole has to keep an eye on any Federal, State and Local regulations that may affect members. IAQA members include pros from the building science, restoration/remediation, IAQ, home performance and building owners/managers arenas’. Cole will give us an update on regulations that affect the work we do. Cole is also a member of several important industry standard committees and hopefully will have time to update us on their activities.
3:45 - 4:15
Nate will be discussing his findings about Humidity, VOCs, IAQ., and Healthy Homes. What he has learned with 30+ Foobot monitors in the field, and why we need to pay more attention to humidification even in cold climates.
4:15 - 4:45
IAQ to Healthy Homes, are you ready? What's the difference? Joe will provide an update and overview on the state of healthy home assessments. What are the new opportunities for IAQ professionals and what other professionals are getting into the game.
Research Round Table
Round table discussion of current research of interest to practitioners.
