USGNN Original StoryNFRC Members Prepare for Monday's Meeting

The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) is holding its Fall Membership Meeting next week, November 3-6, at the Crowne Plaza River Front in Jacksonville, Fla., and starting off the week will be a meeting of the Component Modeling Approach (CMA) technical task group, concurrent with meeting of NFRC's 300-301 task group.

In addition to the meetings set to occupy members' time, meeting organizers have a few special activities planned. Deke Smith, executive director of the buildingSMART alliance™, a part of the National Institute of Building Sciences, will be speaking during the Opening Session on Monday. He's set to discuss how door, window and skylight manufacturers will interface with building information modeling-a topic especially relevant to the industry as it relates to CMA, according to show organizers.

Another first will be a presentation of the member of the year award in recognition of a member's contributions in support of the NFRC mission, among other things.

One thing that meeting organizers promise will be different this time around is the motion process. As a response to member requests and in an effort to streamline the motion process, NFRC staff will work directly with meeting attendees to type motions as they are spoken rather than relying on the familiar pink motion form.
