About Committee Days
Committee Days is a member-only meeting focusing on the activities of NIA’s active committees. As one of NIA’s two annual meetings, Committee Days allows committees to report on business, action items, and current NIA activities. The success of these committees rests solely on the participation of NIA members, who represent different parts of the insulation industry. When NIA members come together, share ideas, discuss industry trends, and express concerns and problems, the industry as a whole benefits.

Health and Safety Roundtable Back by Popular Demand
The Health and Safety Roundtable has been a part of the last two Committee Days meetings. Event surveys tell how popular this event is for attendees where each respondent saying they would recommend the Safety Roundtable to their colleagues, and that they planned to attend the next roundtable. Because the Safety Roundtable was received so positively, the committee decided it would become an annual event. This year's roundtable will be held November 6, 2008, from 1 to 5 p.m. at the Westin Alexandria in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia.
The cost to attend the Health and Safety Roundtable is $120.
