TC 5.8 is most closely affiliated with the efforts of Technical Committee 9.2 -
Industrial Air Conditioning. As a testament to this relationship, many of
our members also serve on TC 9.2, including our Chairman and other distinguished
members of our committee. Reciprocally, Mr. Vernon Peppers, the current
Chairman of TC 9.2 serves on our Committee. We also have strategically
aligned interests with Technical Committee 5.4 as Chaired by Mr. Gerhard Knutson - Industrial Process Air
Cleaning, and retain Mr. Leon Shapiro as our Liaison to SSPC 90.1.
Our current Chairman, Mr. Mike Baucom, was
appointed in 2009, and at the request of the Committee has extended his term
