Stephen L. Yellin was officially installed on May 15 as incoming president of the Institute of Environmental Sciences for the 1996-1997 term beginning July 1. Yellin is managing director of CMPA, a Dallas-based design/build contractor of tight tolerance facilities, where he is responsible for marketing activities for the company`s four divisions: contamination control, high purity process systems, energy, and residential and commercial projects. During the last 13 years, Yellin has specialized in ventilation systems used in the construction and mechanical performance of cleanrooms. A Senior Member of the Institute for 12 years, Yellin has served as ATM Vice General Chair (1991), General Chair (1992), and Fiscal Vice President (1992-1994).
“The Institute`s primary goals are to support the technology of its member industries and to allow members to improve themselves with the knowledge they gain from participation,” says Yellin. “It is essential that the Institute nurture its true strength, which it derives from meeting industry goals.” In addition to revising Federal Standard 209, the 3,000-member Institute is the Secretariat of ISO Technical Committee 209 “Cleanrooms and Associated Controlled Environments.”
Yellin brings to the office 25 years of engineering experience, both as a vendor and as a consulting engineer. The author of several papers on subjects ranging from air-handling equipment to machine tool design and construction, he is a popular lecturer on industrial HVAC systems.
“If I should write my biography years from now, I would hope that I could include a notable role in the growth of the Institute,” commented Yelling. “It`s a role I would count as one of the major accomplishments of my life.” Yellin attended Stevens Institute of Technology (Hoboken, NJ) and Upsala College, (East Orange, NJ). n
