The mission of the international nonprofit organization is to reduce the worldwide burden of fire and other hazards on the quality of life by providing and advocating scientifically-based consensus codes and standards, research, training and Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture education.

NFPA headquarters is located in Quincy, MA, USA.At its regular meeting earlier this month, the board of directors of the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) voted to approve the consolidation of its Fall Education Conference into its World Safety Conference & Exposition‚®(WSCE), Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture also known as the annual meeting.

The move, designed to ease member schedules and travel, will allow Association business to be carried out in one meeting starting in 2005, Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture eliminating the need for attendance at two meetings. Meanwhile, NFPA's 2004 WSCE will take place May 23-26 in Salt Lake City.

The 2004 Fall Education Conference will be held November 14-17 in Miami Beach.The board also voted to change the annual meeting month from May to June, effective next year, Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture in order for the Association to have more flexibility in selecting sites.

Typically, fewer large conferences take place in the summer months, including June. By moving the conference to June, there would also be more review-time for the codes and standards-making process."We are extremely pleased to offer these changes to our members," Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture said James M. Shannon, NFPA president.

Special notice on NFPA regulations and procedures.

During this transition a major concern has been how will this impact the processing of NFPA codes and standards. The solution is to maintain two distinct revision cycles, but utilize a single Technical Committee Report (TCR) Session that will be held annually at the World Safety Conference & Exposition‚®. Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture

Revised regulations and procedures are now in effect for all NFPA documents being processed in the Fall 2005 and subsequent revision cycles, and these will help to eliminate unnecessary time expenditures during the TCR Sessions and will provide agenda control and Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture management tools that will increase the efficiency of these sessions.

The key time saving device being implemented is a new procedure whereby persons wishing to make a motion at a TCR Session must file in advance of the session, a notice of "intent to make a motion." Among other benefits, this will allow identification of "consent documents," which are non-controversial documents with no motions that can bypass the TCR Session and Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture go directly to the Standards Council for issuance.

This applies to approximately 80 percent of all processed NFPA documents.Beginning in the 2004 and Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture continuing through 2005, this will include two sets of the Regulations Governing Committee Projects and two sets of Convention Rules.

One set applies to all NFPA documents reporting up to and including the Annual 2005 Revision Cycle. The second set applies to all NFPA documents reporting in the Fall 2005 and subsequent Revision Cycles. These regulations and procedures are clearly identified in this section with an appropriate heading and footer. Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture

NFPA has held their Annual Association Membership Meetings in the spring of each year (May or June) since 1897. The Fall Conference was also added in 1948 (October or November), Removing Smoke Odors From Fire-damaged Furniture but it wasn't until 1974 that documents began to be processed through a Fall TCR Session.

Thus, NFPA is effectively returning to a processing arrangement that it has used for the majority of its existence. Because two revision cycles will still be used (but with a single TCR Session and also recognizing consent documents), most NFPA committee projects will not notice a significant change with the handling of their assigned documents.
