NEW
From The Desk of 2015 President Ron Takiguchi

Dear Members of the Los Angeles Basin Chapter of ICC and Fellow Stakeholders,

2015 will indeed be an eventful and exciting year!  
Despite this being a year where we are in mid-code cycle, a mid-cycle year will allow us to further study code interpretations and requirements of the 2013 California Building Standards Code. The LA Basin Chapter, through the great work that our Chapter Committees provide will do exactly what this mid-code cycle alows - more interpretations and application of code items which will be available to Chapter members.

Reflecting a bit on the beginning of this year and our Annual Business Meeting and Banquet that was held at the Museum of Flying in Santa Monica, CA on January 17, 2015.  If you were present at this gala event, I sincerely hope you enjoyed the evening.  If you were not able to attend, I would like to share highlights my Presidential address and my administrative goals for 2015:

Goal #1:  Provide the membership with informative and applicable monthly meeting information, quality educational seminars, and tasking the Chapter Committees in providing useful tools for the membership.

Goal #2:  Continue the collaboration between the LA Basin Chapter and the California Building Officials (CALBO), the regional ICC Chapters, and fire officials in order to strengthen the message of building and fire officials, and to create a unified approach to the code proposals for the Group A Technical Code Hearings at the 2015 ICC ABM.

Goal #3:  Ensure that the LA Basin Chapter, together with CALBO, the Southern and Northern Chapters of FPO's and the Orange-Empire Chapter, as co-hosts to the 
2015 ICC ABM Host Committee fulfills its commitment to the success of the ABM as California will literally be on the world's stage amongst building, code and fire officials.

Three Simple Goals - Much To Achieve . . .


And speaking of the 2015 ICC Annual Business Meeting in Long Beach, CA.  Mark The Date!  The ABM is scheduled from September 27 to 29, 2015.  However!  Now is the time to make doubly-sure that your building and fire departments registers staff as Governmental Member Voting Representatives who will be attending the ABM for the candidate voting!  The deadline to register staff is March 20, 2015 and can be completed on the ICC Voter Validation webpage

Indeed!  An exciting year and a very eventful 2015 to come! I hope to see many of you at our meetings and events this year!

Sincerely,

Ron Takiguchi
President
Los Angeles Basin Chapter of ICC
