Interim CEO Callahan Sees NFRC Thriving

Posted By Tom Herron, National Fenestration Rating Council, Monday, September 21, 2015

Interim CEO, Deb Callahan, outlined some of the organization’s most prominent accomplishments during the opening session of its membership meeting in Minneapolis, MN.

Callahan reported that NFRC’s Independent Verification Program (IVP) is thriving and is on target to complete the testing of 10 percent of ENERGY STAR® certified product lines, meeting the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) goal for the program.

She added that NFRC’s international harmonization initiatives are flourishing. During July, NFRC conducted certified simulator training for the Korean Architectural Façade Association (KAFA) and will leverage this into determining the South Korean government’s interest in developing a standardized rating program.

NFRC will also host a delegation from Japan during October to explore similar initiatives.

Additionally, NFRC has acquired 17 new members so far during 2015, bringing the total to 285. It also added 27 participants to its Retailer Program, bringing the total to 276.

Callahan pointed out that NFRC will publish an annual report within the next couple of months along with an educational video series aimed at providing all its stakeholders with faster, easier access to information enabling them to maximize NFRC’s programs.

"Best of all, member engagement is vibrant,” Callahan concluded. "We’ve attracted many new people with original ideas, and they’re contributing to making NFRC a modern organization with a strong vision, clear goals, and unlimited potential.”
