AIA Hawaii Seeking Nominees for Appointment to New Term on State Building Code Council

AIA Hawaii State Council is seeking suggested architect nominees from among our state-wide AIA membership for appointment as the AIA representative to the State Building Code Council for the new term starting this year (2012) and expiring on July 31, 2015. 

The AIA Hawaii State Council welcomes your suggested names of potential member candidates including your self-nomination. The AIA Hawaii State Council plans to develop a short list of interested candidates leading to a final vote and appointment by the 2012 AIA Hawaii Board of directors.

About the Building Code Council 

Act 82, SLH 2007  (link to PDF text).  This Act, enacted in 2007, created the State Building Code Council (BCC) which is administratively attached to the Department of Accounting and General Services. 
The purpose of the BCC is to establish a state building code which would eliminate the fragmented building requirements which currently exist between counties. The state building code would include the latest fire code as adopted by the State Fire Council, the latest edition of the International Building Code, the latest edition of the Uniform Plumbing Code, and Hawaii design standards to implement Act 5, Special Session Laws, 2005 as applicable to emergency shelters and essential government facilities.

For more information including links to the Building Code Council meeting agendas and minutes, visit the BCC home page (link to web).

Please join us in thanking
Bill Brizee of Architects Hawaii for his work --Bill served as AIA Hawaii’s representative for the first term on the BCC following the Adoption of Act 82 in 2007.

Your Suggestion(s) Needed by February 15, 2012

To respond to this call for nominees, email your suggestions to:
Amy Blagriff, EVP
AIA Honolulu on behalf of the AIA Hawaii State Council.

Deadline is  NOON Weds, February 15
