The NFPA Technical Meeting (Tech Session) is an important step in developing a complete record to assist the Standards Council in determining the degree of consensus achieved on proposed changes to NFPA documents. During this meeting, NFPA members are given an opportunity to vote on proposed changes and members of the public can voice their opinions on these actions. NFPA Technical Meetings are held annually at the NFPA Conference & Expo.
