ICC Govt Relations March 2019 edition of the Monthly Update

Exciting news in our area, I would like to introduce our newest ICC staff member dedicated to PMG (Plumbing, Mechanical, Fuel Gas & Swimming Pool & Spa Code issues) resources, Gary Gauthier. I look forward to you all getting to know Gary! Please see the note in the report: ICC Government Relations assigns new PMG Technical Resources Team to states across the nation In order to serve our Members better, ICC has added a few positions to the Government Relations Department. These Technical Resources Team Members will assist your Government Relations Regional Managers in the field. The team members and their assigned states can be seen in this map. They are responsible for developing, coordinating and implementing programs to ensure the successful completion of the ICC Government Relations’ goals and objectives as they apply to the Plumbing, Mechanical and Fuel Gas (PMG) I-Codes and related services and programs of the International Code Council. This includes training and education, providing the subject matter expertise to Government Relations Managers as well as representing ICC at the PMG Chapter meetings, state plumbing and mechanical boards, task forces, committees and councils where PMG subject knowledge is required. Also, New ICC Board decision: Voter validation extended from one to three years for GMVRs! The validation cycle for Governmental Member Voting Representatives (GMVR) has been extended from one to three years. This means that all currently validated GMVRs now remain active for the course of this three-year code development cycle. • Any credentials validated and approved since January 1, 2018, are active through December 31, 2020, as long as the Governmental Member account is kept fully paid and current. • The Primary Contact may edit the voting roster during indicated times throughout the cycle. If no changes occur to an approved voter’s status, the credentials do not need to be revalidated until the next code development cycle. • New or revised applications for voting representatives must be submitted 30 days prior to a voting event (committee action hearings, public comment hearings, or Annual Business Meeting) in order to be eligible to vote at that event. To participate in the Committee Action Hearings in Albuquerque and the online voting afterward, new or revised applications for GMVRs must be submitted by March 29.
