Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA)

The Center of Excellence for the Air Barrier Industry

Alec Minné - Board Member, Chair of the Strategic Liaison Committee

How long have you been on the Board of Directors and what's your current position?

I am the current Chair of Strategic Liaison Committee and have been a director with ABAA for the past 6 years, where I served as chairman for two of those years. In the past, I was also Chair of the Education and Outreach Committee for 4 years.

What made you want to be a part of ABAA?

Common sense said that air barriers are critical to the energy efficiency of buildings and I wanted to be a part of something that would have such a tremendous positive impact on the built world.

What city do you currently live in & where is the farthest place you've travelled to?

I have been in Atlanta since 1998-15 years and I live within the city limits itself because we like the opportunities for unique restaurants, cultural events, concerts, etc. My long distance travel has been to Europe and South America with the furthest to Santiago, Chile or Buenos Aires, Argentina. Santiago is a wonderful city that I recommend visiting for business or pleasure.

What was your favorite TV Show while you were growing up?

Gilligan's Island-I was always amazed that they could make almost anything in the world they needed, except a boat. And the Professor's batteries for his radio never ran out!

What is one of the least intelligent things you have done and then wondered "What was I thinking?!"

Signing up for being the Chair of the Board of ABAA!

What are you most excited about with regards to ABAA's future?

It is exciting to be a part of growth of an organization and watching it succeed. I like seeing the passion that some people have with their work with ABAA including our current Chair of the Board, it energizes me. I am most excited about the impact that air barriers can have on the U.S. construction environment and improving energy efficiency.
