HVI Presents Daniel Forest 2013 HVI Distinguished Service Award

During the 2013 Spring Meeting of the Home Ventilating Institute (HVI) held in February, an outstanding volunteer was recognized for his exceptional contribution to the residential ventilating industry. Daniel Forest, Vice President - Technology & Product Development with Venmar Ventilation, received the 2013 HVI Distinguished Service Award.

Forest, a thirty-year veteran of the residential ventilating industry, became involved in HVI in 1991 when his employer, Venmar, joined the association. Daniel has held every volunteer position possible within HVI at least once. Currently, Daniel is the Chairman of the Certification Committee and a member-at-large on the Board of Directors.

HVI Chairman of the Board, John Fox, presented the award at a reception on February 28, 2013 in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Forest was described as "dedicated, honest, and the voice of reason" by his industry peers who attended the event. Daniel's wife, Jeannine, was at his side to share in the celebration of his achievement.

The HVI Distinguished Service Award is awarded annually by the Board of Directors to distinguished representatives and partners of HVI who have served well and brought honor to themselves and the Home Ventilating Institute. All representatives of HVI member companies in good standing, as well as representatives of recognized HVI partner organizations, are eligible for this award.

The Home Ventilating Institute (HVI), founded in 1955, is a nonprofit association of the manufacturers of home ventilating products. Through its Certified Ratings Program, HVI provides a voluntary means for residential ventilation manufacturers to report comparable and creditable product performance information based upon uniformly applied testing standards and procedures performed by independent laboratories.
