The Chapter Meetings continued at Phileas Fogg through this Chapter year.

The meeting minutes are missing for this year but the newsletters are intact and afford the following:

At September's meeting the topic was "Indoor Air and Water Quality in a Humid Environment" with speaker Dr. Pierre Bourgault, President, Chinook Phi-Beta Corp. He discussed the costs and benefits of dehumidification techniques and technologies, both mechanical and ventilation, in indoor pools, printing plants, laundries etc.

October's meeting topic was "Thermal Recovery in Designated Ventilation Systems - Thermal Energy Storage (Dynamic Ice Harvesting)" and the speaker was Wayne Marsh, President of Team Systems.

Apparently there were meeting in November and January but we have no record of these (sorry).
