The committee has commented on PATH's outreach efforts to industry groups and helped develop practical and strategic ideas for PATH's private-sector work, especially PATH Technology Roadmaps. The Committee also fosters networks between industrial associations and firms that bring resources to PATH and encourage the awareness of housing innovation.
