The 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.

The 2014 Tech Session will held on June 11-12 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. Only NFPA members of record as of December 13, 2013 who are currently in good standing are eligible to vote.
