NEBB Appoints Amber Ryman as First Female President


Gaithersburg, MD - The NEBB Board of Directors recently named Ms. Amber Ryman, NEBB CP, as its 2020-2021 NEBB President.  Ms. Ryman will serve as the organization’s first female president, succeeding 2019-2020 NEBB President Mr. Jeffery Schools, effective immediately.

Ms. Ryman is the Testing, Adjusting and Balancing (TAB) Superintendent at ACCO Engineered Systems, Inc. in San Leandro, CA and holds NEBB Certifications in Testing, Adjusting and Balancing, Building System Commissioning, Retro-Commissioning of Existing Buildings, and Sound and Vibration Measurement, as well as an Associate in Science degree from Foothill College. Her previous positions involved equipment start-up, controls and balancing work within ACCO’s System Operations Department. She began her career in the TAB industry in 1998 after being indentured into the United Association of Pipe Fitters Union Local 467 in San Mateo, CA as an HVACR Technician.

Having served as a NEBB Board Member since 2013, Ms. Ryman is not only NEBB’s first female president, but was also the first woman voted onto NEBB’s Executive/Finance Committee in October 2017. Her past work for NEBB also includes tireless efforts for NEBB’s Standards Council, Conference Planning Committee, and Title 24 Committee.

"It is an honor to serve as 2020-2021 NEBB President. The value of the relationships I’ve built within NEBB is truly priceless. I look forward to giving back to the incredibly qualified individuals that have helped me get where I am today, while also passing that same value onto many others as we continue to grow our association. As the first female president of NEBB, I hope I can help represent the many well qualified women that are a part of NEBB, as well as encourage more women to join this essential industry that we work in," Ms. Ryman stated.

"Having worked with Amber since 2015, I have had the chance to witness firsthand how passionate she is about the work she does. This year, I am excited to work with her in another capacity. I know she will apply her many decades of professional experience to this new role and lead NEBB forward with great ideas and methodical execution. NEBB has a great year ahead!" added NEBB Executive Vice President Tiffany Suite.
