Message from the Steering Committee

Welcome to the Major Jurisdiction Committee (MJC) website. Here you will find information on some of the best practices utilized in the United States and nations abroad concerning department administration, code enforcement and role of the code official. In addition to best practices, information is constantly gathered on such diverse topics as staffing, salaries, building condemnations, community redevelopment, and emerging trends. MJC is the premiere contact portal for federal, state, and major jurisdictions and is a representative example of the synergetic power that code officials working together can generate for the benefit of all our communities.

We encourage all those eligible to join MJC and for everyone to participate in our initiatives and contribute their best practices, experiences and opinions. The Committee meets twice a year prior to the ICC Committee Action Hearings and during the ICC Annual Conference. The Steering Committee hosts quarterly conference calls that are open to the public.

We look forward to working with all of you throughout the year, and remember MJC is here to make it easier and more effective for you to run your organization.

All members of the Major Jurisdiction Committee are invited to attend and participate in the meetings.


The Major Jurisdiction Committee is open to any of the following:

  • representatives of state enforcement agencies
  • members representing the capital cities of each state
  • members from the two largest jurisdictions from each state (in addition to capital cities)
  • the capital city of a country
  • member representatives from communities with a population of 500,000 or more.
