New ICB/TABB Journal Available Online

January 29, 2014

The “ICB/TABB Journal” is now available. Formerly known as “TABB Talk,” the new publication offers a more functional layout, enhanced design and improved content.  “Our goal is to make this the leading industry publication in its category, a useful resource that engineers, technicians, supervisors and contractors can refer to time and again,” said James Page, NEMIC Administrator.
Each issue consists of seven categories: Commentary, Industry Pulse, Letters, Events, Tech Talk, Contractor’s Corner and a Feature article that addresses vital industry topics in an in-depth and thoughtful manner. This issue’s feature article by building performance consultant James E. Woods, P.E., Ph.D., discusses the challenges and opportunities associated with developing an educated and skilled workforce.  While HVAC Testing Adjusting and Balancing will always be the central theme, the “ICB/TABB Journal” covers topics that go beyond traditional testing, adjusting and balancing. These include related disciplines such as HVAC fire life safety, commissioning, sound and vibration, indoor air quality, total building energy audit and fume hood performance testing.
The “ICB/TABB Journal” is designed to be interactive.  “It works best when our readers are fully engaged,” said Page. “We encourage them to submit ideas for matters of interest, opinions in the form of Letters to the Editor, or even relevant articles in the 500 – 1,000 word range.”
As a bonus, if your article is selected for publication, you will receive a complimentary registration for the 2014 ICB/TABB Conference in Cleveland in May. To submit ideas and materials, simply email Imagine Communications at
