The presentation topic will be HEPA Filter Technology and Applications.  This presentation will cover the history of HEPA filtration in the United States, provide an overview of Life Science & BioSafety Applications, explain HEPA Filter Technologies, and illustrate the importance of maintaining HEPA system integrity while realizing economies and mitigating risk.

Also the ASHRAE NY Chapter will be celebrating its 107th anniversary this October so we will have a cake cutting ceremony at the dinner meeting.

Last and definitely not the least, our theme for October is Research Promotion.  This is where we get to recognize and thank all of our sponsors for their support.
