VW Settlement Workshop Session: Monday, May 1, 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
This workshop will provide information on how tribes can benefit from the $ 55 million VW Settlement to mitigate diesel emissions. This training will be a “one stop shop” for ribes to learn about this historic settlement, determine how to fill out the necessary
forms to secure funding and find out how to maximize their funding to do the air quality work defined in the settlement. Attendees will be asked to bring a list of all diesel vehicles including marine vessels to the training from their Tribes. Contact will be
made to registered attendees prior to the training to assist in completing this list. Session registration is required. For more information, contact Andy.Bessler@nau.edu.

Indoor Air Quality Demonstration Session: Monday, May 1, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm
This training will focus on assessing IAQ in homes and businesses utilizing wireless IAQ monitors to identify issues and occupant behaviors that may impact the health of IAQ. This workshop will give tips on doing assessments more effectively. Traditionally, data has been gathered
through spot testing, which suffers from not always being representative. However, the advent of affordable and high quality sensors paired with internet-based monitoring platforms has revolutionized the ability of IAQ professionals to track and improve building performance.
Session registration is required. For more information, contact Angela.Benedict@srmt-env.nsn.us
