FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT
Greetings fellow Colorado Chapter members;
I would like to start off by congratulating Mr. Greg Wheeler, current President of the International Code Council. We are indeed very lucky to have someone from our State representing the ICC – and the Colorado Chapters!
As we reflect on the past year and celebrate our accomplishments, it is now time to look to the future, to strive for excellence, and continue to uphold the values and hard work by the many who have served before us. It is no secret why the Chapter has earned the highly regarded reputation it has throughout the country.
As we start the new year, we recognize that there are already challenges upon us. We must continue to nurture the Mentorship and Building Futures Programs; to find innovative ways to bring new blood into the organization all the while enhancing relationships with our current members and encouraging them to step up and serve.
Your Board continues to strive to improve the use of technology and to make the website more user friendly. Some of these efforts are already in the works.
Collectively we must be ever vigilant with regards to legislative issues that affect our industry and colleagues. As a Chapter, and with the support of other organizations, we have a strong voice and an ever-growing influence – of which has been demonstrated in the not too distant past.
We must continue to support and help bolster our fellow professional organizations such as REGION XI, CAPMO, CAPT, and FMAC; building better relationships across the line. As a call out to all Building Officials and Supervisors, please consider becoming members and encourage your staff to attend the meetings. I have attended several of these meetings over the years and have found the fellowship and educational experience to be highly valuable and well worth the time spent.
This year we are looking forward with much anticipation to a new location for the Ed-Institute. The Colorado Chapter’s Education Committee will be hosting its 35th Annual Educational Institute at the Embassy Suites in Loveland Colorado, March 2 through March 6. There will be a host of new and revised classes to choose from, register as soon as possible as many classes fill up quickly. An added plus, parking is plentiful and free!
Please take a moment and check out the Chapters website for several recent postings. Through the hard work of our “Program Committee” the Colorado Chapter’s 2020 Master Calendar is now available for viewing and planning. The networking among members, as well as the friendships developed, are what makes this time so beneficial to everyone that attends.
Let us pledge to make the upcoming year one of growth in membership and further opportunities for the training of our members. I look forward to this exciting, challenging time, and ask you join in. I can tell you firsthand, I have received far more from the Chapter than I will ever be able to return!
Please help me welcome your 2020 Colorado Chapter of the International Code Council Board of Directors.
