Press Release: ARA CEO Guy Sylvester Named Chair of the American Lung Association NH Leadership Board

September 1, 2013- Indoor Air Quality expert, author, and CEO of Absolute Resource Associates Guy Sylvester has been named Chair of the American Lung Association NH Leadership Board. The purpose of the American Lung Association NH Leadership Board is to advocate for lung health and increase resources to fund local programs and services throughout the state.

The American Lung Association is known worldwide for its efforts to improve lung health and prevent lung disease through education, advocacy and research. The ALA was originally founded in 1904 to fight tuberculosis, and today, the organization fights lung disease in all its forms, with special emphasis on asthma, tobacco control and environmental health.

Sylvester has over 20 years of experience in the Environmental Services field, managing large corporations all over the country before purchasing Absolute Resource Associates (formerly Resource Labs) in 2000 with his wife Susan. He is a practicing Industrial Hygienist, Board Certified Microbial Consultant, Board Certified Indoor Environmental Consultant and State Certified Asbestos Inspector. Sylvester is on the Board of Directors of the NH Chapter of the Indoor Air Quality Association (http://www.iaqa.org/) as well as co-founder of the NH Mold Task Force (NHMTF). The NHMTF, also sponsored by the American Lung Association, was formed to help the public deal with the many complicated issues surrounding mold and human health.

Sylvester has a passion for helping people whose health is negatively affected by their indoor environment, and so his association with the American Lung Association was a natural fit. Sylvester says he looks forward to increasing public awareness about lung health through his role as Chair of the American Lung Association NH Leadership Board.
