The National Institute of Building Sciences Consultative Council is reaching out to building industry stakeholders—including individuals, corporations, professional groups, trade associations and advocacy groups—to provide input for its 2014 Moving Forward report to the President of the United States.
Each year, as required in its enabling legislation, the National Institute of Building Sciences submits an Annual Report to the President and Congress. In that report, the Consultative Council includes the report, Moving Forward: Findings and Recommendations from the Consultative Council, which addresses current issues and opportunities before the building industry. In past years, those recommendations have come solely from Consultative Council member organizations. In the interest of capturing the widest possible spectrum of issues and ideas for the 2014 report, the Council is soliciting input from the industry at large.
All members of the building industry are invited to identify challenges and opportunities, along with potential solutions, for the Consultative Council to consider for inclusion in its 2014 report. Such input can focus on those issues and associated recommendations relating to the building industry in general or particular priority areas. Submissions should highlight specific actions to be taken either by the industry itself or by policymakers (primarily at the federal level, but also how federal policy can help drive state and local policies).
In order to consider submissions and prepare findings in time for the 2014 report, the Consultative Council must receive industry input no later than July 15, 2014. View previous editions of Moving Forward: Findings and Recommendations from the Consultative Council for reference. To provide input, fill out the submission form.
