Raising the Profile
How do successful code officials garner support? How did they gain respect for the value they provide their community? It does not happen overnight and it takes courage, commitment and initiative. These pages can help code officials take action to raise their profile by providing ideas, articles, slideshows and more. Explore the categories Community Awareness, Local Leadership and Professional Expertise to find materials that may be beneficial to you. We encourage you to use the materials to help you, and we also request that you contribute to the effort by identifying other materials that may be of use to other code officials. Lastly, these materials cannot do what they are intended to do if you do not take the initiative to act on your own behalf to educate those in your community about the vital role you play in public safety and in the economic success of your jurisdiction.
