DHCD is reaching the end of the regulatory process that will result in the 2012 Virginia Uniform Statewide Building Codes (USBC). Tentatively we anticipate an effective date mid 2014. As a reminder, there is a one year grace period after the effective date that allows customers to choose either the new codes or the prior edition. Check the website periodically for updates.
The Virginia Plumbing and Mechanical Inspectors Association (VPMIA) was the recipient of the 2011 Chapter of the Year Award during Wednesday’s Awards Luncheon at the 2011 ICC Annual Conference in Phoenix. Chapter Merit Awards were presented to the Code Administrators Association of Kentucky (CAAK) and the Northwest Building Officials and Code Administrators (NBOCA) in Illinois.
To earn the Chapter of the Year honor, a Chapter must demonstrate a high degree of professionalism in promoting the vision, mission and goals of the Code Council. The Chapter distinguishes itself through the development and implementation of programs designed to increase the professionalism of its members and code officials everywhere, and participate in local, state, regional or national activities to increase the public awareness of safety in the built environment.
“Since its inception in 1962, VPMIA has been very active in code development and other professional activities,” Awards Committee Chairman Gregori Anderson said. “The Chapter holds instructional meetings where attendees can earn CEUs, and participates in Virginia’s state code academy, providing instructors and curriculum development, and teaching more than 30 classes.”
“The Chapter of the Year Award is only accomplished through the hard work of your members,” said VPMIA President Bane Compton. “I hope by winning this award it will inspire the future member of our organization to make the same accomplishment.”
