Members of the International Code Council elected Clark County (Nevada) Director of Development Services Ron Lynn as President, Decatur (Alabama) Building Director Jimmy Brothers as Vice President and Chesterfield County (Virginia) Building Official Bill Dupler as Secretary/Treasurer. Adolf Zubia, Las Cruces (New Mexico) Fire Chief, will serve as Immediate Past President.
Ron Hoover, Director of the Marion (Iowa) Building Inspection Department and Alburnett Fire Chief, and Tina Rakes, Baldwin City (Kansas) Building Official, were elected to three-year terms as Directors. Guy Tomberlin, Fairfax County (Virginia) Code Specialist, was elected to a one-year term that was vacant due to Dupler’s election as an officer.
Re-elected to three-year Director terms were Gregori Anderson, Director of Building Safety and Regulatory Services for Chatham County (Georgia), and Ron Piester, Director of the New York State Department of State Division of Code Enforcement and Administration.
“Our future must include enhancing the cooperation between the fire and building disciplines,” Lynn said in his inaugural address. “I ask all of you now to come together, not just in the national arena but on a local level to mutually support each other’s activities no matter how large or small, whether it be code adoption, safety programs or public relations initiatives.”
“In addition to their professional careers, Code Council Directors are volunteers who devote their personal time and energy to ensure code officials around the world have a strong organization,” said Council CEO Richard P. Weiland. “Their passion for building safety and public service makes the world a safer place.”
The elections were held during the Council’s Annual Conference this month in Baltimore.
