SAN JOSE, Calif. - The fifth annual Testing, Adjusting, and Balancing Bureau (TABB) Conference gathered to discuss the latest trends, building commissioning certification, and customer relations.

The conference opened with the announcement of TABB's globalization, made by Erik Emblem, TABB administrator. "Testing, adjusting, and balancing is unique. It's a new industry where we can organize workers," said Emblem. TABB has also received inquiries from firms across Europe and the Middle East.

The General Session of the TABB Conference included presentations and discussions such as: Indoor Environmental Solutions, given by Susan and Richard Wing of Wing's Testing and Balancing Co.; Green Buildings, LEED and the TABB Contractor given by Mark Kukla of Air Systems in Rochester, N.Y.; Natural Ventilation by Sezin Eren Ozcan of Catholic University of Leuven, Faculty of Bioscience Engineering, Heverlee, Belgium; The International Certification Board (ICB) Report, where conference attendees were able to ask questions and make comments to members of TABB's governing body, the International Certification Board; a breakout session on the TABB Affiliates, which gave attendees the opportunity to ask questions and interact with TABB Affiliate members on what it means to be a TABB Affiliate and how to become one; and a Customer Trust course, in which attendees reactions to clients and situations through role playing were analyzed and they were subsequently provided the tools to communicate effectively with customers.

The TABB Hall of Fame awards were also held during the conference honoring Tim Perry and Bright Sheet Metal, Indianapolis.
