BPI Accepting Applications for Standards Technical Committees
Malta, NY, October 4, 2012 - The Building Performance Institute, Inc. (BPI) is now accepting applications from individuals interested in serving on BPI's Standards Technical Committees (STCs). BPI's STCs develop technical standards in an open and fair manner in accordance with American National Standards Institute (ANSI) approved BPI standards development procedures. Interested parties should submit an application by November 15, 2012.
The STCs are appointed to review and take action on proposals and comments from the general public and industry members, to develop new standards and update existing standards on a regular basis. Each year, BPI seeks applications from experienced technical personnel willing to take on the responsibilities of developing the technical standards on which our industry depends. Prospective nominees' applications will be assessed by BPI's Standards Management Board (SMB) to ensure a diverse representation by technical expertise, geographic location, and experience in the building sciences. The SMB will appoint up to five members to the Single Family STC, and three members to the Multifamily STC, each to serve a term of three years, beginning January 1, 2013. Appointments to the STC will be announced in mid-December 2012.
If you would like to apply for one of BPI's Standards Technical Committees and help craft the standards used by the residential energy retrofit community, please fill out the Application for Membership on Standards Technical Committee form and submit it electronically by November 15, 2012, in accordance with the instructions on the form.
