Note that in accordance with the NFPA bylaws, nine of the twelve Director-level Board seats are allocated to manufacturer, distributor and supplier members in numbers proportionate to the contributions of these three constituencies to NFPA’s overall dues revenue. This calculation is performed each fiscal year, based on the rolling averages of the previous three fiscal years. For 2019-20, the calculation has resulted in an allocation of seven seats to manufacturer members, one seat to a distributor member, and one seat to a supplier member.
This allocation does not pertain to the remaining three Director-level Board seats (which can be offered to either manufacturer or distributor members at the discretion of the Nominating Committee), the Officer positions (which are nominated separately and can contain any number of manufacturer or distributor members), or the two most recent Past Chairs of the Board (who continue to serve as Director-level Board members).
