Do I need to be a member of a BPI Standards committee or working group to attend meetings?
No. BPI Standards Technical Committee (STC) and working group meetings are open to anyone with a technical interest.
How do I join the BPI Standards Technical Committee?
Annually in the fall, BPI issues a call for interested individuals to apply to join the STC. These are considered and appointed by the BPI Standards Management Board (SMB) to ensure a balanced representation of technical experts. Anyone with a legitimate technical interest is invited to join one of the working groups upon application and notification. See below.
What about working groups?
Working groups are responsible for drafting standards and bulletins and conduct most business via conference call or e-mail. Working groups forward their work to the STC for appropriate action. Working groups need participants willing to actively participate on regular conference calls and provide edits to the draft standard or bulletin.
How can my company join BPI?
BPI is not an industry trade association with member dues. Rather, it is primarily a personnel testing, assessment and credentialing institute that establishes industry benchmarks or competencies. For information concerning BPI’s programs, benefits, eligibility and dues, visit www.bpi.org.
Why isn't there a standard on…?
BPI Standards welcomes the opportunity to meet the building performance industry’s standards needs that support new technologies and installation services. If you have a suggestion, send it to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
