Industry Member Questions NFRC Board Election Decision
The National Fenestration Rating Council's (NFRC) recent board of directors' election has not been without controversy. Members of the glass, glazing and fenestration industries have questioned a number of issues relating to the matter, including the board's decisions to place certain nominees into certain categories. One such example was the announcement that Marcia Falke of Keystone Certifications had been elected to serve on the board of directors in the "Fenestration Industry" category. Falke is the president of Keystone Certifications, a licensed independent certification and inspection agency.
Cliff Monroe of Arch Aluminum & Glass sent an email to NFRC executive director Jim Benney to find out how Falke, who works for a certification agency, came to be considered as part of the fenestration industry. Read the email from Monroe as well as Benney's response below.
Fenestration Industry - Five (5) representatives who are employed or affiliated with Members involved in manufacturing fenestration products or components or with Members who are trade associations or other organizations formed to represent such manufacturers. Of those five positions, at least three (3) shall be filled by one individual from each of the following categories: (i) a primary glass manufacturer; (ii) a manufacturer that sells the majority of its fenestration products for use in non-residential construction; and (iii) a manufacturer that sells the majority of its fenestration products for use in residential construction.
I hope this answers your previous query.
