Virginia Plumbing and Mechanical Inspectors Association is a association of code professionals dedicated to promotion of uniform enforcement and development of the codes throughout the Commonwealth to assure health, safety, and welfare of its citizens and anyone who may live, work, or visit the state of Virginia. The pursuit of this endeavor is achieved through close, open, and equal working relationships with design professionals, builders, contractors, material manufacturers and others involved in the construction industry.
The Jack A. Proctor Virginia Building Code Academy delivers administrative and technical code training programs for mandated certification requirements for over 3500 statewide professional certifications in various code enforcement disciplines including code official, inspection and plan review. Most of the programs required for certification are multi-day and are offered throughout the calendar year in various locations across the state. In addition to the mandated training, the academy periodically offers a number of specialized training events on topics that are pertinent or relative to current issues in the code enforcement industry.

The 2018 Richmond Planning Committee is already hard at work preparing for the 2018 ICC Annual Conference and Hearings scheduled to take place here in Virginia, October 21-31, 2018. There are a number of events and hospitality services Virginia will need to plan or be part of. In doing so, the 2018 Richmond Planning Committee has established sub-committees whose charge will be to concentrate on specific events or related details.

It is the intent of the planning committee to have the sub-committees be comprised of volunteers from each of the 4 ICC Chapter Member Organizations here in Virginia; VFPA, VPMIA, WICED and VBCOA, or in other words, each sub-committee will have at least one volunteer from each Chapter.

This is where the VPMIA members can contribute to the success of this conference. We are currently seeking interested volunteers who are willing to sit on these subcommittees. The work and the roles of each subcommittee will vary and there is sure to be one where your talent or interests would be the most helpful.

Please look over the initial list of subcommittees (below) and respond to James Anjam if you are willing to sit on one of the committees. This list may grow as the 2018 planning committee moves through the planning process. Again, it is the 2018 Richmond Planning Committee’s hope to have each organization represented on all subcommittees.

This is a very important event for Virginia and all Chapters and we want to be actively involved in its planning as well as providing a positive contribution to the conference’s success. It is necessary for those interested to respond as soon as possible as the subcommittees will need to set a meeting schedule (in person and/or through electronic or teleconference means) and begin accomplishing its specific to-do list.

On behalf of the VPMIA Board of Directors, we look forward to your participation in the planning of this exciting and important event.  

Please contact James Anjam at with any questions you may have.
