HI regularly updates its standards and welcomes input from our members and partners. Any full-time employee of a Standards Partner company, or individual Industry Partner or Academic Partner , with appropriate technical expertise, may be eligible to participate in HI standards or guideline writing committees. Each technical expert applying to participate on an HI committee must complete a Technical Areas of Expertise form and, if interested in actively participating, identify one or more specific HI committees, keeping in mind how they can contribute to the scope, purpose and accomplishment of the deliverables of the committee. Such credentials will be presented to the committee at the next meeting for review and the applicant may or may not be invited to participate based upon the committee’s needs and the “balance” between current HI members, other consulting engineers, users and other interested parties on the committee. HI may also establish size limits on committees to maintain a manageable size.
To learn more about HI Technical Committees and which ones are seeking new members visit the Technical Committees section.
Participation, based upon such acceptance(s), may include any of the following:

Partners will not have HI "Standards Voting" or "Executive Voting" privileges, as defined in the HI by-laws.
