ICC Announces Creation of Corporate Membership Council and Call for Governing Committee Members
The International Code Council Board of Directors has announced the creation of the new ICC Corporate Membership Council, establishing a forum for the corporate and regulatory communities to foster stronger interaction and identify and examine issues of mutual interest related to the built environment. Other key objectives of the new Corporate Council include broadening the understanding of emerging construction trends and technologies and increasing the use of replicable buildings, commissioning and other approaches to streamline the building safety compliance process.The Corporate Council joins five other discipline-specific Membership Councils organized by ICC—Building Official, Fire Service, PMG Official, Sustainability and Global—that provide opportunities for Code Council Members to have greater impact in how the organization serves to enhance their work performances, careers and professions. “ICC’s success is driven by the unity and diversity of its Members and is reflected in our Membership Councils,” said Code Council Board of Directors Vice President, Ron Piester. “The new Corporate Membership Council creates a bridge between the corporate and regulatory communities to help achieve building safety compliance more efficiently, and allows us to better serve our Members, businesses and communities to promote a shared vision for a safe and sustainable world.” The ICC Board will appoint a nine-member Governing Committee for the Corporate Council that will advocate for its concerns and interests, provide feedback to ICC on issues that impact corporate development and construction, and serve as a voice for the Code Council’s activities and programs that relate to the corporate community. The Corporate Council is open to any ICC individual or corporate member or any member in good standing of a closely aligned organization. Governing Committee appointments and other important details will be announced soon.At this time, ICC is accepting applications for the Governing Committee.
