The Resilient Floor Covering Institute (RFCI) held its fall in-person meetings for two of its key committees in Atlanta, Georgia, last week. The Technical Advisory Committee covered important topics, including ASTM updates, ecomedes database updates, industry-wide EPDs, and the new AFFIRM certification. The Marketing Committee meeting reviewed current marketing initiatives and discussed future plans.

The guest speaker at both meetings was Stanley Mathuram, executive vice president of SCS Global Services. He manages 110 certificate programs, including FloorScore and Assure Certified– both RFCI programs. Mathuram briefed both committees on the increasing consumer preference for sustainable products.

Both committees are comprised of executives in their respective fields from member companies of RFCI. “We were pleased that so many leaders in technical and marketing roles in RFCI member companies invested their time in these key meetings,” observed Bill Blackstock, president and CEO of RFCI. “The level of enthusiasm and engagement was fantastic, across the board!”
