New NFPA President
As the new President of the NFPA, what will you do to reduce the cost of participating in the NFPA code development process, which tends to inhibit participation by members of the fire service.

MAny qualified fire service personnel are willing to participate in the committee meetings for code and standard development, but costs associated with attendance of these committee meetings can be prohibitive for departments of limited means. Why is NFPA so opposed to teleconferencing and other communication technologies being utilized in the development process that would enhance participation in these committees?Steve Gallagher

While fire departments may agree with both the intent and regulation of NFPA standards, for many reasons (such as budget, personnel) departments are unable to administer the standards. With "quick fixes" being difficult, how will NFPA work address such departments in a method that will help, not reprimand them?Spec. Krista M. Aukeman, United States Army
Some day, in years to come, you will be wrestling with the great temptation, or trembling under the great sorrow of your life. But the real struggle is here, now, in these quiet weeks. Now it is being decided whether, in the day of your supreme sorrow or temptation, you shall miserably fail or gloriously conquer. Character cannot be made except by a steady, long continued process.
