Calls Regulatory Members to Provide Input
Within many sectors of the building industry, there is growing concern that an insufficient number of new participants are entering the buildings workforce. In particular, code officials and others that serve the building regulatory segment of the industry are concerned.
The National Institute of Building Sciences, on behalf of the International Code Council (ICC), is conducting a nationwide survey of participants in the building regulatory process to understand the current state of the industry, the pathways for entering such careers and the long-term health of the profession.
Fostering the development of the next generation of code officials is essential to promoting the future health, safety and welfare of the nation’s communities. Understanding the current building regulatory workforce, as well as what may have motivated them to choose this profession, will help ICC and others within the building industry to develop strategies to attract a new cadre of young professionals.
The survey consists of 25 multiple-choice questions, and should take only a few minutes to complete. Responses will be reported only in the aggregate and not traceable to individuals. The compiled data will help inform the development of outreach and training activities and other efforts to expand the number of participants entering the building regulatory workforce.
The largest demographic survey of code officials to date, building regulatory professionals at all levels (federal, regional, state or local) are asked to answer the questions. Participating in the survey will help to advance the future of the building regulatory profession.
The survey closes May 9. Take the survey now.
