Greetings from Region I
Region I of the International Code Council (ICC), is excited for this year. Our executive board has renewed energy and desire to help Region I fulfill its mission. We have discussed at length the state of the Region I Chapter and discussed what we can do this year, especially as we build a foundation for the future.
Specifically, the Region I Executive Board has set these goals for 2020:
- Build an education resource calendar, to be on the Region I website, to allow Chapters to advertise the availability of their educational programs, to the region as a whole.
- Provide a process for the vetting of candidates for ICC national positions to allow Region I to support candidates at the ICC Annual Conference.
- Facilitate the validation of Governmental Voting representatives for ICC’s cdpACCESS for all of the member jurisdictions, in order to assure that Region I has a strong voice in ICC Code Development.
- As Region I, select a worthy candidate for one of the annual ICC awards, and submit for the ICC award from Region I.
