New Member Orientation Kicks off NFRC's Spring Membership Meeting

NFRC’s Spring Membership Meeting is underway in New Orleans. The meeting began at 8:00 a.m. One of the first presentations was a new member orientation program.

The orientation began with NFRC’s CEO, Jim Benney, mentioning that there are 135 people in attendance, including 31 new attendees. This is the most heavily attended meeting in NFRC’s history.

Benney pointed out four of NFRC’s over-riding goals:

1. To deliver valid data to all customers, which include the public and building industry and code officials

2. To deliver a successful energy rating program to the commercial fenestration industry

3. To deliver an improved and simplified ratings program for the residential fenestration industry

4. To deliver new rating procedures and programs for existing and emerging technologies

The meeting wrapped up with NFRC’s new Membership Manager, Anita Marsh, speaking about two of the key benefits of becoming an NFRC member. Marsh said the first one is the ability to make one’s voice heard. The second benefit Marsh mentioned is the ability to vote on issues that influence
the fenestration industry.
