The Air Movement and Control Association has elected Ruskin President Keith Glasch to its board of directors and Ruskin Director of Architectural Solutions Jim Smardo as chairman of the AMCA louver marketing task force.

As board member, Glasch will serve a three-year term and will help guide the association in matters pertaining to its growth as well as air movement and control technology, which includes fans, dampers and louvers.

“It’s a privilege to be asked to serve on the board of directors of an association that has supported our industry in many important ways during its 100-year history,” Glasch said. “I look forward to applying my more than 25 years of experience in HVAC technologies and products, as well as my business expertise, to the association as we celebrate AMCA’s rich past and engage in exciting new opportunities for its growth in the future.”

Smardo will serve approximately two years as chairman of the task force, which includes representatives from five louver manufacturers.

“The AMCA louver marketing task force is relatively new and was developed because we have to deal with a tremendous amount of codes,” Smardo said. “Our goal is to help educate the industry about the value of AMCA’s certification programs, which ensure louvers have been tested to meet AMCA codes. I’m excited to help with this effort as chair of the task force.”
