Call for Committees

Volunteers are one of the most important assets of the International Code Council. Their work on the ICC Board of Directors, committees and councils is directly related to the success of ICC. It takes the time and expertise of many individuals working through the numerous ICC committees to shape the Code Council into the world-class membership organization that exists today.

These “Call for Committees” provide another opportunity to serve.

See Standards Development Interest Categories resource for additional information.

Code Hearing Moderators

The Code Council is seeking code development experts interested in serving as unbiased moderators of the code development hearings. 

Code Council moderators serve a critical role in the execution of the International Codes® (I-Codes) hearings. The committee action hearings (CAHs) and public comment hearings (PCH) are a part of the industry-leading code development procedures that set the standard for an open and transparent process, allowing any interested parties to participate.  

This facilitates a broad spectrum of ideas, expertise and input enabling the I-Codes to be the best model codes available to support the built environment, impacting nearly 2 billion people globally. 

  • Moderators are appointed by the Code Council President (President of the Board of Directors) and act as presiding officers for the public code hearings in accordance with CP-28. 
  • Moderators are respected members of the code development community and have subject matter expertise in the Code Council’s code development procedures and the I-Codes.   
  • The moderators facilitate decorum during the code hearings and facilitate the successful progression of the proceedings in accordance with CP-28 and Robert’s Rules of Order. 
  • Moderators serve as a critical extension of the Technical Service Team in the successful execution of the code development hearings. 
  • Moderators cannot serve on code development committees during the same code cycle. 
  • Moderators have significant experience serving/participating in code development hearings. 
  • Moderators must demonstrate an unbiased approach in hearings. 

The Code Council’s Technical Services Team will select potential moderators from the applicants. The selectees will be placed in the moderator training program to be developed as moderators supporting future code hearings. 

Individuals who have successfully served previously as Code Council code development hearing moderators do not need to reapply. 

Individuals interested can apply on the Committee Application site. 

Low-Carbon Alternative Cements Consensus Committee (IS-LCCC)

As an ANSI accredited standards developing organization, the Code Council is developing a new performance standard for the assessment of low-carbon alternative cements used in concrete. The cement industry is responsible for about 8% of the CO2 emissions for the globe.  With the increased attention to the effects of global CO2 production, there is a need for low-carbon alternative cement that has the proper physical properties in accordance with model building codes and the referenced standards within.  A standard will provide requirements for those physical properties that could be referenced in the International Building Code (IBC).

Once appointed, this committee will convene to develop the new ICC 1155 -202X entitled, Standard for Low-Carbon Alternative Cements used in Concrete.  This performance standard would assess low-carbon alternative cement properties and its effects on concrete mechanical and durability properties based upon the ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria for Low-Carbon Alternative Cements for use in Concrete (AC529).

For more information on the ANSI Accredited ICC procedures for developing standards please visit the Code Council’s Standards Development webpage here.

At this time, the Code Council is receiving applications for members to serve on this committee. In accordance with ICC’s Consensus Procedures, the committee will be a balanced committee of 12 – 15 members of the following Interest Categories: Manufacturer, Builder, Standards Promulgator / Testing Laboratory, User, Utility, Consumer, Public Segment, Government Regulator and Insurance. Accordingly, stakeholders including, but not limited to, code officials, design professionals and installers should apply. A full description of the Interest Categories is included in the application linked below. Any stakeholder is welcome to apply and ICC membership is not required. Appointments will made by the ICC Board of Directors. The acronym below is to be used to identify the application.
