The Cool Roof Rating Council (CRRC) is pleased to announce Dr. Frank Klink as this year’s recipient of the Marty Hastings Award. The award was presented to Dr. Klink during the CRRC Annual Meeting on June 14, 2023, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Dr. Klink is an outstanding volunteer and has been a valued contributor to the CRRC for the past 20 years. He first became involved with the CRRC in the early 2000s, while working for CRRC member company 3M. In 2011, he was appointed to the CRRC Technical Committee as an alternate, and then was appointed as a voting member in 2014.
After 34 years at 3M, Dr. Klink retired from the corporation in mid-2019, which ended his term on the Technical Committee. He immediately applied to become a CRRC General Interest Member to continue his active participation in the organization. A year later, Dr. Klink was elected to the CRRC Board of Directors, and early the following year, he was appointed as the chair of the CRRC Education Committee, a role he continues to serve in. As the committee chair, Dr. Klink has gone above and beyond to serve the organization by actively participating in most committee projects and by supporting staff. Dr. Klink is also an authorized CRRC Educator and has collaborated with staff over the years on research projects, papers, and presentations.
Dr. Klink contributes to meeting discussions with insight, thoughtfulness, and care, and is well-liked and respected by other members. The CRRC is greatly appreciative of Dr. Klink’s many years of dedication and contributions to the organization.
As part of this distinguished award, the CRRC has made a donation in Dr. Klink’s name to the Science Museum of Minnesota. The Science Museum was founded in 1907 and is “dedicated to collaborating with our community to create a world where everyone has the power to use science to make lives better” (https://new.smm.org/).
The CRRC Board of Directors created the Marty Hastings Award in honor of longtime Board member, Treasurer, and Technical Committee member who passed away in 2011. Mr. Hastings contributed greatly to the CRRC and is fondly remembered for his upbeat attitude, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. To commemorate Mr. Hastings’ contributions to the organization, the CRRC created this annual award presented to a volunteer who has made outstanding contributions to the CRRC. Nominations for the award are solicited from the CRRC Membership, and the recipient is selected by a Board-level committee. The award includes a $500 donation made in the recipient’s name to a charitable organization of their choice. Visit coolroofs.org to learn about past award recipients.
