The Mechanical and Plumbing Technical Committees of IAPMO are seeking members to fill the under-represented positions in the categories of labor, insurance, and consumer. Each committee is responsible for the Uniform Mechanical Code and Uniform Plumbing Code, charged with the ultimate task of creating the documents that protect the property, structural integrity, and most importantly, the safety of millions of people throughout the world.
"Being in a room where interesting people--your peers--are advancing an argument on a plumbing or mechanical issue is thrilling; you may be present at a turning point in code awareness, understanding or possibly a change that will be proposed to the code itself," said Roger Rotundo, chairperson of the Mechanical Technical Committee.
The seriousness of the task demands that applicants to these committees possess the highest level of integrity, a dedication to the safety of the public, extensive code knowledge, and a commitment to the mission of the committee. Applicants should also be aware that, while the work of the committee will require very little travel from its members, it may involve intense study and a workload that is generally distributed electronically.
All those members of the plumbing and mechanical community who are interested in exploring this challenge are invited to apply for a position on either committee. An application can be downloaded from www.iapmo.org. If you have any questions, please contact Jay Peters, IAPMO Standards Council Secretary, 5001 E. Philadelphia Street, Ontario, CA 91761, call (909) 472-4100 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
