From The Desk of The President....
Dear ICC Los Angeles Basin Chapter Members and Stakeholders
I am honored and humbled to be the chapter president for 2014 after 28 years in the building industry and many years on the ICC- LA Basin chapter’s board.
ThIs year, the chapter will continue to provide training, strive for consistency among local jurisdictions, and provide legislative and code updates on all important functions related to our industry.
The board of directors for the ICC- LA Basin chapter is committed to working with local agencies; their building as well as their planning staff. ICC, the Ventura, Orange County, and San Diego area chapters, CALBO, the Fire protection Organization, and state agencies to insure that all important information and updates are circulated among our members thus insuring the highest level of knowledge.
I thank the industry consultants who have relentlessly assisted the local jurisdictions during the past several years as construction activities took a giant leap in the positive direction. We could not have done it without you.
I urge you all to participate in our monthly meetings and join our committees as we value every input which remains pivotal for our continued success.
The chapter and its board acknowledge every individual in code enforcement on every level, and acknowledge all those that realize that codes are there to protect lives and are for the welfare of the community at large.
Our special thanks go to those fire fighters and their proud families; as they have chosen to put their own lives in jeopardy so we can stay safe.
I am looking forward to having a year full of success for this elite chapter, and I invite you to email me as well as the board if we can shed some light on improving what we all do daily. The better we are, the safer our community and our families are.
