Answer the call: Apply for the Professional Development Council
The International Code Council is issuing a call for new members of the Professional Development Council. If you are interested in having a say in the governance of the ICC National Certification exams and/or the ICC Education program, now is the time to apply. The application closing date is June 20, 2019.
The Professional Development Council is comprised of two committees: the Certification Committee and the Education Committee. The Certification Committee and Education Committee are each made up of six members, with Code Council Board of Directors liaisons and the Professional Development Council chair. The Certification Committee and Education Committee will meet separately and/or jointly as meeting items warrant. The Certification Committee and Education Committee members are appointed by the Code Council Board of Directors for three-year terms. Currently, there will be four positions open on the Professional Development Council (two for the Certification Committee and two for the Education Committee).
Individuals appointed to the Certification Committee shall be responsible for advising Code Council staff and the Board of Directors on all matters related to the certification program, as well as direction and oversight of Examination Development Committees. The Certification Committee has sole authority over the rules and procedures of the Code Council certification program, including such topics as the appeals process, examination security policies, disciplinary action and others.
Individuals appointed to the Education Committee shall be responsible for advising Code Council staff and the Board of Directors on strategic matters related to Code Council education program activities. Serving on the Education Committee will help strengthen the credibility and quality of the Code Council education program.
Committee members will be required to meet via web/telephone conference and/or in person up to several times per year as needed. In-person meetings are held at least once a year for a one- to two-day period, with travel expenses reimbursed by the Code Council. Committee members must be able and willing to travel for scheduled meetings. Orientation and initial training will be provided by Code Council staff liaisons and ongoing assistance will be provided as needed.
