Research & Technology Committee Passes Four Motions

After Chair Werner Lichtenberger of TruSeal Technologies welcomed members of the Research and Technology Committee, the group wrapped up the morning’s business by passing four motions presented by its subcommittees.

Bipin Shah of WinBuild, Inc., who chairs the Research Subcommittee, presented three motions to the committee to:

·Extend the Window 6/Therm 6 Validation research project deadline to NFRC Spring 2010 Membership Meeting
·Extend the deadline for the Condensation Resistance for the Component Modeling Approach (CMA) project to January 31, 2010
·Increase funding by $5,200 for the Window 6/THERM 6 Validation research project

He also noted that the Research Subcommittee appointed Peter Lyons of Peter Lyons & Associates as its vice chair after Rich Biscoe of Architectural Testing, Inc., resigned. Shah welcomed Lyons to the position and thanked Biscoe “for all the support he’s given us.” Bipin also mentioned that the subcommittee is seeking a task group chair for long-term research activities.
Sneh Kumar of TRACO Inc., who serves as the chair of the Optical Properties Subcommittee, reported that his committee had no motions to present. He requested that more NFRC members participate in the subcommittee’s activities.

Charlie Curcija of CARLI, Inc., who chairs the Thermophysical Properties of Materials Subcommittee brought forward the fourth motion to the subcommittee:

·To move NFRC 101 forward to the Board of Directors, except for items sent back to the Task Group, with implementation upon publication of the 2010 documents.

Curcija, who also chairs the Glossary and Terminology Subcommittee, noted it had no action items for the subcommittee.

With the passage of the motions, the Research & Technology Committee moved these actions items to the Board for final approval.
