Chapter Meeting @ FergusonChapter Meeting @ FergusonWed, Oct 5, 2016 @ 5:30 PM to Wed, Oct 5, 2016 @ 8:00 PM

Ellen Cheever, CMKBDASIDCAPS, has spent the past 44 years redefining the kitchen and bathroom for North American consumers and industry professionals.

 

Holding a Bachelor of Arts degree in Home Economics from California State University, Ellen’s career has included work in the showroom-based sector of the industry, and has practiced as an independent designer. Her creative talents are well grounded in years of managing design/build projects. She has been responsible for launching new products and developing new dealers as an executive in the cabinet manufacturing part of the business. She has traveled the road as a “Manufacturer’s Rep”, as well as managed thought-provoking, dramatic, designer-focused incentive adventures. She has been around long enough to know what both success … and failure feels like. And, how the best pros in the kitchen and bath industry always rebound from economically challenging times.

Though her focus is specific, her expertise touches many venues. As product consultant, author, designer and industry spokesperson, Ellen educates and impacts the lives and workspaces of homeowners, designers and manufacturers.

Light, Lighting and Health

Jeffery Dross, Corporate Director, Education and Industry Trends at Kichler is presenting this CEU on how lighting affects our natural body rhythms and functions.

Since the beginning of time, humans have lived with the day/night cycle of the earth’s rotation, which also happens to balances perfectly with the needs of the body’s Circadian Rhythm. With the creation of fluorescent light and more recently solid state (LED), artificial light has now added unnatural color to evening light, thus causing disruption to the body’s physiological cycle, along with unexpected medical results. In this class, we’ll discuss:

  • Natural Light – The direction, intensity and color of natural light has always served the needs of humans, plants and animals.
  • Artificial Light – From fire to LED, humans have used some sort of artificial light source. Why now has light become an issue of concern?
  • Health – With an understanding of the eye and the Circadian Rhythm we will then look at a number of health issues and possible health concerns that have been impacted by the inappropriate use of light and how correct lighting can improve a person’s overall health and wellbeing.

With new technology, more needs to be considered in the planning stages of good lighting solutions.

What Will Be Covered:

  • Natural and Artificial Light
  • The human eye and the Circadian Rhythm
  • Light pollution, light flicker, photo-biological safety and blue light hazard
  • Sleep & Lighting
  • Senior lighting needs
  • Low-vision lighting needs
  • An assortment of medical conditions that have shown improvements with better lighting choices

In 1974, while studying Architecture, Jeff started his career in residential lighting. Chiefly concerned with running Engineering for 25 years, he has since been involved in many other facets of the business including Product Management where he concentrated on Systems and Energy Efficient lighting, QA, Graphics, production trouble-shooting, International vendor communications and an ERP systems implementation.

He is currently Corporate Director, Education and Industry Trends while continuing as their often-quoted media spokesperson. Jeff understands that the face of residential lighting is ever changing and has been involved in a number of industry roundtables that are working to plan for the future. Jeff has also authored a number of articles about lighting for trade publications, consumer magazines and web journalism. He is the recipient of the American Lighting Association’s 2015 Pillar of the Industry Award.  He presented this CEU at the 2016 KBIS Voices of the Industry.

This CEU is presented by Dave Ferguson, Builder Sales Manager for BSH Home Appliances (Bosch, Thermador & Gaggenau).  He is responsible for builder sales in the Southwest and Mountain Region.  Mr. Ferguson has been with BSH for a total of 12 years and in the Kitchen and Bath Industry for over 25, with a portion of that time having been spent as an independent appliance dealer in the Las Vegas Market.
