NFRC Announces 2021 Membership Recognition Awards

The National Fenestration Rating Council held its virtual Fall Membership meeting this week.

In addition to sessions about emerging trends and innovations that foster more energy-efficient windows, doors and skylights, the meeting included the introduction of two new networking opportunities for fenestration professionals with the Women in Fenestration Network and the Sustainability Network. “Each group provides a forum to connect, share ideas, and hear about trends in the industry,” says Deb Callahan, NFRC CEO.

As part of the meeetings, NFRC bestowed three membership recognition awards.
