Getting Involved - Revisited

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
     I held off sending this until I was sure, but during the last SEAOSC 
     Orange County meeting Susan Dowty of ICBO (who gave a great talk on 
     the status and details of the upcoming IBC 2000 code) suggested that 
     anyone interested in commenting on the Draft IBC 2000 send a fax to 
     ICBO and they would send a complimentary copy.  Yesterday I received 
     my copy.  It also includes an official form for submitting changes and 
     they have also listed the responsible contacts for each section 
     including phone, fax, AND E-Mail addresses.  To get your free 
     complimentary copy you need to send a fax (no phone orders) to ICBO 
     1-562-692-3853 attention Liz Letz.  I assume, but I am not sure, that 
     this only applies to those on the West Coast who fall under the IBCO 
     (UBC) jurisdiction.  I would like to think that BOCA and SBCCI are 
     also offering free copies in their respective areas.  Anyone in the 
     South or East U.S. know??
     This seems like a great opportunity for those of us who are travel 
     and/or money challenged to GET INVOLVED and to become familiar with 
     the Building Code that all of us in the States will be using in just a 
     few years.
