WDMA Assists International Code Council® Foundation
The Window and Door Manufacturers Association (WDMA) announced that its acting president Jeffrey Lowinski has been assigned a seat on the International Code Council Foundation's (ICCF) Board of Governors to represent WDMA and the door, window and skylight industry.
As an ICCF member, WDMA will continue to promote responsible advocacy for building safety through sponsorship of community outreach programs such as the "Silent Defender Awards" and "Project H.E.R.O. (Homes Eliminated of Restrictions and Obstacles)." Silent Defender honorees were named recently for their significant contributions to improving public safety, health and welfare and WDMA participated in the awards dinner in Washington, D.C. (See http://www.icc-foundation.org/news/nr051706awards.html.)
Project H.E.R.O. consists of a coalition of organizations helping disabled American veterans. The H.E.R.O. program assists veterans with specific housing needs, removing barriers where they live or providing building renovations to make their homes accessible and livable. In the future, Lowinski, said, WDMA member companies may participate more fully, providing door, window and skylight products to specific H.E.R.O. projects.
"WDMA is pleased to partner with the ICCF and other supporters of building safety, accessibility and members of the community assisting others. We've worked with the ICCF on several fronts to help promote its mission and its public safety programs and will continue this emphasis in the future," he said.
