The 2017-18 fiscal period officially began July 1, and with it began the terms for the new members of the Board of Directors. The election for board positions took place during the Annual Meeting at the Annual Conference this past February.
The current members of the NFPA Board of Directors are:
In accordance with the NFPA bylaws, 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 2017-18, the calculation has resulted in an allocation of ten seats to manufacturer members, one seat to a distributor member, and one seat to a supplier member. This allocation does not include 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 still serving in director positions.
A message from the chairman outlining the strategic direction and program objectives for the new fiscal year will be released later in July.
