You will soon begin seeing features in our publications such as the BSJ Online and Code Council eNews that will report on these visits to your departments and Chapter meetings. Already, Training & Certification staff are planning similar visits to local building departments in the Birmingham area. I’m sure their discussions will include the work of the CBO Examination Development Committee and its efforts to strengthen the Code Council’s National Certification Program that has a long, rich history which to date has issued more than 350,000 credentials to a wide variety of Members and industry professionals. Hopefully you have visited one of our offices recently, or even had the opportunity to talk with as many staff members as possible during the Annual Conference in Kansas City. Chances are some of our millennials were seen immersed in their i-Phones , or our other staff from Generations X, Y, and Z and beyond were displaying their adaptability skills as they embrace and utilize technology. Either way, we look forward to much success for the “In Your Neighborhood” initiative and further uniting all facets of our organization.
