Sherry Harbaugh, FCSI, CCS, RA, SCIP

Technical Resources Consultants Inc (TRC)

After nearly 30 years in the construction industry predominantly as an independent consultant, my current focus revolves around educating, empowering construction teams to be confident about communicating with specifications and learning about construction materials. 

I am passionate about educating the next generation of our industry in the aspects of specifications. I enjoy working with teams, researching products, and encouraging trust within the industry. I believe product knowledge comes from asking questions, listening to others, and digging into information.

I am a Fellow of the Construction Specifications Institute (FCSI), participating at local Chapter, Region, and Institute levels for the last 30 years. The majority of my contributions have been centered on educating groups and individuals for the CSI certification exams, working with product manufacturers to create interactive opportunities, and providing leadership on committees.

In May of 2023, TRC launched an education arm - Specs Education Online. This e-Learning tool aims to educate the next generation of construction teams by providing quick answers to basic specification questions and assist the self learner to understand specifications as a career path.
