Building Membership Council
The purpose of the Building Membership Council (BMC) shall be to enhance professionalism and advocate for concerns and issues that are of particular interest to building officials, to assist ICC in increasing the participation of such individuals in the ICC Code development process, and to advise ICC on programs and policies, legislative matters, code adoption issues and such other matters as the Council deems appropriate.
The Building Membership Council (BMC) is open to all ICC Members and will serve the needs of Building and others in code enforcement. You'll have an opportunity to discuss issues that you face as a community, and how ICC might best serve you. If you're looking to get more involved in the building community, network with peers, enhance your profession and career, and influence the direction of ICC to your benefit, enroll in the Building Membership Council today.
Simply fill out the enrollment form, and ICC will be in touch with more details. The Governing Committee serves to actively engage Members in discussions about priorities and opportunities for the direction of the Council.
