The NFPA board of directors, in March 2004, approved the consolidation of NFPA's Fall Education Conference into the World Safety Conference & Exposition® (WSCE), starting in 2005. This move will allow association business to be carried out in one primary membership meeting, eliminating the need for attendance at two meetings. Most NFPA Technical Committee projects will not notice significant change, since we will continue to have two revision cycles each year, although now with a single Technical Committee Report Session. The board also passed several motions and approved revisions to various NFPA procedures that directly relate to this initiative. For more information visit www.nfpa.org.
