The RESNET Board of Directors has recently approved expanding RESNET’s membership and franchise to include all active Certified RESNET HERS Raters in good standing.

This action will result in the following:

  • Create a new RESNET membership category of RESNET HERS Raters Members and extend RESNET membership to all active certified RESNET HERS Raters in good standing, at no cost to the HERS Rater.
  • The current RESNET Board representation of HERS Rating Company representatives will be changed to Certified RESNET HERS Raters. All incumbent HERS Rating Company representatives on the RESNET Board will be shifted to the new HERS Rater Member category.
  • All Certified RESNET HERS Raters in good standing will now be eligible to run for election and vote for the Certified RESNET HERS Raters representatives on the RESNET Board.
  • All HERS Raters will receive communications and updates from RESNET regarding the RESNET Board election process.

The new membership category does not include a listing on the RESNET directory. This option, however, is still available for those companies who want to market their service in the RESNET directory with a basic listing. The annual cost of a basic listing will remain at $200. Additionally, HERS Raters and HERS Rating Companies listed on the RESNET website’s basic listing still have the option to be listed on the premium directory.

Companies with the basic listing also receive a discount for RESNET event registration and will continue to receive discounted published versions of the International Energy Conservation Code.

The Certified RESNET HERS Rater membership category expands the RESNET network, which is a positive step for the HERS Rating Community. “This RESNET Board action is a major event in the development of the organization,” said RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden. “It is a recognition of the key role that HERS Raters have in the industry and has made RESNET a more inclusive organization.”

This new membership category will be able to vote for their representatives in the 2022 RESNET Board election. For more information, visit
