“The members of our all-volunteer Board of Directors devote their time, energy and expertise to the Code Council to ensure safe construction while lessening the burden on government,” said Dominic Sims, ICC Chief Executive Officer. “We thank them for their leadership and we thank their local jurisdictions for supporting their service.”
