The National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC) will have its 2020 Fall Membership Virtual Meeting from Oct. 19 to 21. NFRC is the nation’s leading authority on energy-performance ratings for fenestration products including windows, doors, and skylights.

At the three-day online event, attendees will discuss proposed changes in the industry, updates to NFRC’s energy-performance ratings, and aspects of fenestration that affect the comfort and energy use in homes and offices nationwide. The meeting also features a keynote address from architect Ed Mazria, the founder and creator of Architecture 2030. Mazria will share his research on how buildings can be designed and built to reduce carbon emissions including energy-efficient windows, doors, and skylights.

Other meeting topics include a panel discussion on the latest technological developments and innovations in fenestration products with experts and researchers from the National Renewable Energy Lab and the Department of Energy’s Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy. NFRC’s Leaders Network also is sponsoring a session titled How to Become a Brand Ambassador for professionals to network online and build their personal brand. Each of the three days includes task group, subcommittee, and committee meetings that will review proposed changes to NFRC processes and procedures that improve the industry.
