Industry Research Committee


The Industry Research Committee provides member value through analytics, statistics and data trend analysis. The committee’s first action item after its 2016 formation was to understand and administer the Tank and Valve report; since then it has evaluated and created two additional industry reports for members.

Committee Charges:

  1. Advises staff on developing and executing collection and analysis of relevant industry statistics and trends
  2. Reviews results of the statistics and trends and provides recommendations to responding to key findings
  3. Provides semi-annual reports to the Board of Governors
