Chapter Active Committees

Our committees are dedicated to the ongoing education and betterment of the International Code Council. We believe that by working together, we can provide better resources like product evaluation, accreditation, certification, codification and training. Each committee shall consist of not less than two (2) members in good standings unless otherwise authorized by the Board of Directors. Committees shall be given specific charges and specific functions to perform by the President or as directed by the Board of Directors. All proposals or recommendations of committees shall be presented to the Board of Directors for final action.

Code Interpretation Committee

The Objective of the Code Interpretation Committee is to recommend code revisions, interpretations and code amendments. The committee selects code issues based on a common interest or significance to the membership. Recommendations will be posted from time to time on the chapter web page, but only after the membership has had an opportunity to provide input. Recommendations are in no way binding; the building official is solely authorized to render interpretations in his/her jurisdiction.
