The NFPA Technical Meeting, better known as "Tech Session", is an important element in the standards development process. Tech Session ensures that consensus is achieved on proposed changes to NFPA Standards prior to Standards Council review. During this meeting, supporters and opponents of certified motions voice their opinions and NFPA members are given an opportunity to vote on proposed changes. This year's meeting will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago, June 24-25.
The Tech Session Agenda, that includes the Certified Amending Motions (CAMs), will be posted on May 1, 2015. Here is a quick reference to the specific documents under consideration and voting eligibility. Complete details on the codes and standards process are available here.
The Technical Meeting is preceded by the General Session, 3 days of conference sessions, section business meetings, networking events and an expo that showcases 300+ exhibitors. For more information go to NFPA Conference & Expo®.
