Education Committee

The CRRC Board of Directors created the Education Committee to provide guidance on the CRRC’s educational activities for the improvement of public awareness and comprehension of cool surfaces.

The Education Committee is responsible for:

  • Creating audience-appropriate educational materials

  • Identifying education opportunities

  • Working in collaboration with other CRRC committees (e.g., Ratings, Codes, and Standards; Technical) in the dissemination of information related to cool surface education

The Education Committee meets approximately 4-5 times per year, and meetings are virtual and/or held in person. Visit Meetings and Events for a list of scheduled meetings.
