With the support of Foundation contributors, NIA explores many opportunities to enhance or develop programs to further promote the powerful benefits of insulation and grow the industry. These programs benefit internal and external audiences and strengthen our relationships through strategic partnerships with allied associations, the design and building community, and with state government officials and Capitol Hill.
A list of our current initiatives is below.
2020 Capitol Hill Fly-In
NIA will once again be participating in the Insulation Industry National Policy and Advocacy Forum and Capitol Hill Fly-In, May 19–20, in Washington, DC. The Insulation Industry National Policy and Advocacy Conference has a new website. Please check it periodically for additional details.
NIA encourages member participation. If you are interested in representing the commercial and industrial side of the insulation industry, and would like to attend, please email Kristin V. DiDomenico.
Industry Measurement Survey
Every 2 years, NIA’s Foundation conducts a survey to gauge the size of the insulation industry. This survey began in 1997 and sought to gain data about the size of the insulation industry and growth rates for the U.S. commercial and industrial mechanical insulation market. NIA members that participate in the survey provide information to an independent, third-party company. To read about the most current survey results, please click here.
The Foundation Steering Committee is seeking the input of NIA's Young Professional Advisory Committee (YPAC) on the value of creating a video(s) to aid in recruitment to the industry, and YPAC created the Video Task Force. The task force decided to focus attention first on the recruitment of management/office personnel.
Working with a third party, NIA created a 3D model of a mechanical system that demonstrates heat loss due to lack of, insufficient, or damaged insulation.
