The Spring 2017 Ballot Cycle is now open through March 2, 2017.
Votes on ballots are due by March 2, 2017. All ballots will be resolved at the 2017 Spring Committee Meeting in Alexandria, Virginia, March 27-28, 2017.

What is a Document Ballot?
The NFRC is grateful for the many volunteers who stand committed to keeping the NFRC's programs relevant and work diligently through task groups and subcommittees under the Research and Technology Committee, Technical Committee, and Ratings Committee. Much of the work concentrates on putting forth updates/changes to the NFRC's programs and technical documents as well as proposals for future research and research-related items.
The NFRC's document balloting process occurs two times per year--prior to the NFRC's Annual (Fall) and Committee Week meetings (Spring). This consensus-based process works to ensure that every company that participates through membership has an opportunity to share their expertise in the development and future success of the NFRC's varied programs.
As ballots are reviewed, members are asked to vote one of three ways for each document up for review: Approve, Do Not Approve (Negative), or Abstain.
Once the ballot cycle concludes, all responses will be organized and a summary will be available for review approximately one week prior to the meeting. These responses will be discussed, reviewed, and voted on at the subcommittee meeting.
Comments submitted with "Approve" votes may not be considered by membership; if your comments require the attention of NFRC Membership, vote "Do Not Approve" and provide comments.
Only NFRC members in good standing are eligible to vote on NFRC ballots.
