Distinguished Code Council committee spots available for motivated professionals looking to improve landscape irrigation, storm shelter and high-wind construction standards
Applications are due by Wednesday, January 31
Washington, D.C. – The International Code Council is looking for volunteers to serve on several esteemed Standards Consensus Committees that will determine the future of landscape irrigation, storm shelter and high-wind construction standards. The Code Council develops a number of codes and standards, including mechanical, plumbing, structural, resilience, accessibility and green standards, and is accredited by the American National Standards Institute.
Committee members play a key role in the codes and standards development process and are integral to developing the model codes and standards that provide for safe buildings and resilient communities in the U.S. and many other countries. Volunteers have the chance to share their expertise, build their skills and knowledge, learn more about the consensus process and network with peers from throughout the global community who have similar interests.
The Standards Consensus Committees review applicable Code Council standards to determine whether the standard will be re-affirmed, revised or withdrawn. Terms last through completion of the updated standard. Volunteer applications are due by Wednesday, January 31, 2018, for the following committees.
