Harris to Retire as NIBS President (posted 10/24/07)

David A. Harris recently announced his intention to retire as president and chief executive officer of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) after almost 20 years.

David A. Harris, FAIA, recently announced his intention to retire as president and chief executive officer of the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBS) after almost 20 years. At a meeting of the NIBS board of directors, Harris agreed to remain in office through a planned national search for his successor.

“We’ll have several more occasions to recount Dave’s accomplishments and thank him for what his work here has meant to the public, our industry, and to us personally,” said Board Chair James A. Broaddus, Ph.D., P.E. “Our search committee will be taking on a big, big job.”

Under Harris’ leadership, the NIBS has grown as a nonprofit business and a nationally and internationally respected public-private forum for the building and facilities industry. Among his many other contributions, Harris chaired the Access Board’s federal advisory committee that developed the first comprehensive revisions to the Americans with Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines, an effort honored with the Hammer Award of the National Performance Review Program.

He is a member of the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects, an honorary member of the International Code Council (ICC), a founding member and past chair of ICC’s Industry Advisory Committee, and a member of the ICC Foundation’s Board of Governors.
