NFRC Announces New Committee Chairs
December 20, 2010
The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) announced that Steve Johnson, John McFee, and Joe Jonely will serve as committee chairs for the ratings, accreditation and certification policy committees respectively.
Johnson has been appointed as the ratings committee chair. He will preside over NFRC’s certification and labeling program development to assure the uniform application of the rating system. Additionally, the committee serves as the forum for discussion and communication of programs and activities, which significantly affect the rating system. The ratings committee meets three times per year.
McFee will serve as the accreditation policy committee (APC) chair, overseeing NFRC’s laboratory accreditation program (LAP). A key part of that committee’s role is to issue policy interpretations relating to laboratory accreditation, rule on appeals properly brought pursuant to the LAP, and recommend modifications to NFRC’s LAP. The APC meets approximately 12 times per year.
Jonely will step in as certification policy committee (CPC) chair. The CPC provides oversight for the certification agency program and issues policy interpretations related to NFRC's product certification program. The CPC meets approximately 12 times per year.
These committee chairs also serve as ex-officio members of the NFRC board of directors to ensure that the board is fully informed regarding the activities of their committees.
“All of these leaders offer specialized skills and a commitment to volunteer leadership,” says NFRC chief executive officer Jim Benney. “Our members, program participants and the public will benefit from the expertise they bring to their new positions and to our consensus-driven process.”
