Senate Confirms Haahs to Institute Board

The United States Senate has confirmed President Barack Obama’s final nominee
to the National Institute of Building Sciences Board of Directors. Last year, the
President announced his intent to nominate Timothy Hyungrock Haahs, PE, AIA,
to the Institute’s Board. On August 1, the Senate unanimously consented to
Haahs’s nomination.

Haahs, who was nominated last December 6, is president and chief executive
officer of Timothy Haahs & Associates, an engineering and architectural design
firm headquartered in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania, which he founded in 1994. He
serves on both the Advisory Committee for the Philadelphia Urban Land Institute
and the Board of Directors of the International Parking Institute. Haahs is a
member of the American Institute of Architects and a fellow of the American
Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). In 2010, Mr. Haahs presented to the United
Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific on the global
challenge of traffic and parking, infrastructure and sustainable development. In
2011, he was named ASCE’s Philadelphia Engineer of the Year and received the
Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association’s Entrepreneur of the 
Year Award. Mr. Haahs received both a Bachelor of Science and a Master of
Science from the University of Pennsylvania. His term on the Board expires 
September 7, 2014.

Haahs joins five other confirmed presidential nominees on the Board: James
“Tim” Ryan, CBO; Mary B. Verner; Susan A. Maxman, FAIA; and James
Timberlake, FAIA, who were all confirmed in June 2012, and Joseph Byrne
Donovan, who was confirmed in January of this year.

The Institute Board is comprised of 21 members. Six members are appointed by
the President of the United States, with the advice and consent of the Senate,
to represent the public interest. The remaining 15 members are elected and can
represent either public interest or industry voices. 

This is the first time in more than half a decade that none of the seats are
vacant and all of the Presidential appointments on the Institute's Board are up
to date.
