“Work safely. Go home safely.” 
The National Framers Council develops and implements
best practices to help ensure framers leave the jobsite
each day in the same health as they arrived.

Future Vision

NFC will systematically address member priorities
to develop best practices for the framing industry.

Topics include:

  • Defining scopes of work through the chain of commerce to outline responsibilities between framers and subs
  • Risk management programs to address topics such as indemnity traps/insurance
  • Quality Control
  • Technical and Code Compliance assistance for members
  • Standard installation details
  • Training Programs
  • Business Management Surveys such as Financial Performance and Wage/Benefit
  • Employee Retention/Workforce Development
  • Leadership Development
  • Research and testing
  • Article writing and development of a publication for communication of topics specific to the framing industry
  • Opportunities for peer interaction, relationship building and learning from each other
