The Central Arizona Chapter of the International Code Council
How Amazing is this?
Congratulations to the Central Chapter for being named ICC Chapter of the Year, September 20th, 2021, at the ICC Annual Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The award was presented by Code Council Board Director Shirley Ellis to Central Chapter President Larry Taylor. From the ICC news release: “The Chapter of the Year Award is the Code Council’s highest award bestowed upon a chapter and recognizes the extraordinary performance by an International Code Council chapter in promoting the goals and mission of the Code Council. “On behalf of the International Code Council, it is a sincere pleasure to support the hardworking and proactive building safety professionals of the ICC Central Arizona Chapter,” said Kelly Sadler, senior regional manager for Arizona in the government relations division of the International Code Council. “The 2021 Chapter of the Year Award is well deserved for these extraordinary Central Arizona Members who have consistently convened and collaborated during an unprecedented time in our society to promote the safety goals, mission and values of ICC.”
The 2021 AZBO Fall Education Institute
The Institute is back. The AZBO Fall Education Institute was held October 11 through 13 in person at the Double Tree Hilton in Mesa. 16 classes were offered over the three-day Institute. 331 students participated. It was so good to be able to meet friends, colleagues, and new students in person in Mesa. So many smiles, so many impactful conversations. Thank you to the Execsec, Shannon Headington, the Education Committee led by Pat Headington, and all the helpers and volunteers for putting on the best 2021 Fall Education Institute we’ve ever had. This was a great opportunity for Learning, Networking and Advancement!
The Holiday season has arrived
The Holiday season is upon us. I can tell because I have more Black Friday adds than permit applications in my in-box. Please take the time to remember people less fortunate than yourselves and help a friend in need. REMEMBER that it is your hard work and dedication that makes the built environment safe for the Holidays. Thanks for all you do for all of us.
Be Safe Out There
