3-22-18 Launch Meeting Agenda
Per Co-Chairs (Ruth Ann Davis with Williams/Phoenix and Lindsey Hawes with CSE), the intention of this launch meeting of the WHPA Codes & Standards (C&S) Committee is to introduce the WHPA C&S goal/strategies approved by the WHPA Board, and then solicit input from the participant group regarding the desired approach toward achieving the C&S goal and for pursuing its strategies. This first meeting is envisioned as a re-acquaintance and level-setting more than anything else. The Committee's deliverable implementation plan will be solidified after this initial meeting.
We look forward to receiving your meeting registration prior to the online event and to your joining us for the WHPA Codes & Standards Committee Launch Meeting on Friday, March 22, 2019 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm PDT. (Access information will be emailed with confirmation of your meeting registration.)
Advanced registration is required for this meeting, which has open participation for focused input on aligning industry needs to WHPA's C&S goal. However, to be accepted to the C&S roster for active participation in Committee activities thereafter, participants must be registered WHPA members in good standing. If you are not already a member but are ready to take advantage of the opportunities WHPA has to offer, submit an online application at: http://whpa-inc.org/member_join.html.
