Scott Kriner, technical director for the Metal Construction Association (MCA) and The Metal Initiative (TMI), was appointed chairman of the Cool Roof Rating Council's (CRRC) technical committee at the CRRC’s recent board meeting in Reno, Nev.
Kriner, LEED AP, was vice chairman of the technical committee in 2010. He succeeds Rick Olson of the Tile Roofing Institute, who stepped down as technical committee chairman when he was elected to the CRRC board of directors.
CRRC develops methods for evaluating and labeling the solar reflectance and thermal emittance (radiative properties) of roofing products, including roof coatings, and disseminates the information to all interested parties.

CRRC's technical committee is charged with understanding and resolving core science and technical issues such as standard ASTM methods, round-robin testing programs for Accredited Laboratories, weathering test farm protocols, and other functions. All CRRC committee chair positions also serve as ex-officio board members.
Kriner has been participating in CRRC meetings since the council's inception in 1998. He was chairman of several task groups and most recently represented the cool metal roofing industry through the successful adoption of the Color Family Procedures that are now in use.
"I am honored and humbled by the appointment from the board," Kriner said. "The technical activities of CRRC are the backbone of the organization and over its history we have had exceptional chairpersons leading the technical program. They left large shoes to fill indeed."
