Code Council Annual Conference Heads to Minneapolis

Residential fire sprinklers and improved energy efficiency are just a few of the code change proposals expected to draw lively debate during the International Code Council's Final Action Hearings at the Code Council's 2008 Annual Conference. Held Sept. 14-23, at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, the annual conference offers visitors the opportunity to broaden your code knowledge and contribute to the future of building safety and fire prevention.

"Participation in the code development process leads to safer construction, saved lives, and reduced property losses," said Rick Weiland, Code Council CEO. "We look forward to welcoming a strong turn-out of First Preventers - code officials - along with local government officials, architects, engineers, contractors, and other construction industry professionals."

The conference's Final Action Hearings on Sept. 17-23 will result in the 2009 International Codes, giving all attendees the opportunity to voice their opinions about proposed code changes. Nearly 30 education sessions will be offered. Topics include hazard response, disaster mitigation, green building, and more. Certification testing will be available Sept. 19-22 for residential and commercial building, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, and fire inspectors, and more.

The expo will feature more than 100 exhibitors displaying construction industry-related products and services designed to improve the built environment. A special section of the expo will be dedicated to plumbing, mechanical, and fuel gas products.
