Dear Los Angeles Basin Chapter Members and Stake Holders,
It's that time of year again, the LA Basin Chapter is seeking a dynamic individual to serve on the Chapter Board. This individual would ideally be experienced in building department administration, operations, code development, application of codes & standards, as well as display enthusiasm to commit to the Chapter membership. Commitment to the Chapter will endow the new Board member direction of one of the largest ICC Chapters in the nation. The term for this position may be for a five-year period, including the possibility of the Presidency of the Chapter. Thus, the candidate's tenure will include at least one code development cycle, an enthralling process, where discussions and outcomes will be critically important. By serving on the Board of Directors, the individual will virtually impact each one of the member jurisdictions in Los Angeles County, all 89 jurisdictions.
The LA Basin Chapter is one of the most respected Chapters in the nation, thanks to its membership, the Committee chairs and members, and the Board. The Chapter also has the proud tradition of being one the most technically proficient Chapters. In serving as a Board Director, preservation of this tradition, as well as providing responsible, ethical guidance is essential.
Interested candidates should provide A Statement of Interest, Current Resume, and Letter of Commitment from the jurisdiction signed by the building official (or if the candidate is the building official, then by the candidate’s supervising director). The required information must be emailed to the Nominations Chair by Friday, October 30, 2020.
Shahen Akelyan, Nominations Chair
Former President, Los Angeles Basin Chapter
Qualifications and Duties of Board Directors may be found in the Chapter’s By Laws at the following link https://icclabc.org/bylaws
Interviews will take place mid-November.
I thank you for your interest and look forward to a new, energetic Board Director!
