Wanted: Volunteers to Serve on ICC Code Development Committees
The International Code Council (ICC) is accepting applications for seats on its code development committees for the 2004/2005 cycle.
The deadline for applications is Friday, Aug. 20.
Each cycle, NAHB submits a full slate of nominees to represent the association and the home building industry on these committees. Builder participation on ICC’s code development committees is critical to ensuring that residential building codes remain practical and cost-effective. Builder volunteers play a vital role in helping to ensure that housing remains decent, safe and affordable.
Fire Safety Committee Volunteers Especially Important
Applications are currently being completed for those who have volunteered to date, but volunteers are still needed to represent the home builders on the International Building Code (IBC) Fire Safety Committee. This committee is especially important because it determines code requirements for emergency access and other items that impact broad areas of new construction.
To volunteer or recommend another builder, send the builder’s name and contact information to Joe Knarich at email@example.com, or call him at 800-368-5242 x8366. Builders' contact information is requested by close of business Friday, Aug. 13.
