Committee volunteers needed
The AEBO Executive Board will be establishing four Section Committees: Education, Membership, By-laws, and Nominating. If you are interested in volunteering for a particular committee please contact Courtney O'Neill.
Education: A committee responsible for developing Education Session submissions for the NFPA® Conference & Expo. The committee would meet during the NFPA Conference & Expo and participate on conference calls throughout the year as necessary to come up with ideas for the educational material for the following year.
Membership: A committee responsible for promoting the Section Membership. The committee will develop policies, and strategies for enhancing the membership.
By-laws: A committee responsible for reviewing the by-laws, keeping them current and recommending changes as required.
Nominating: A committee responsible for receiving nominations from the general body and recommending a slate of candidates to run for election to the AEBO Executive Board.
Free standards seminars
The AEBO Standards Seminar is intended for architects, engineers, and building officials who have not participated in NFPA meetings or on technical committees or for those who just want to brush up on the code- and standard-develoment process. The seminar reviews NFPA's and AEBO's organization and structure and introduces a number of NFPA documents commonly used with the model building codes in building construction. It also covers procedures used to develop NFPA codes and standards, walks through the 113-week development schedule, and illustrates how to submit code change proposals and comment on proposed changes at committee meetings. The seminar wraps up with a question-and-answer session.
Any interested group can request the seminar, and organizations such as the American Institute of Architects, local building officials' organizations, and engineering societies will find it invaluable. All you have to do is provide the location and the attendees, and NFPA will provide the materials and a presenter to run the program. If you are interested in hosting a Standards Seminar, please contact Section Executive Secretary Courtney O'Neill for details.

This section is active and sees an important role for itself in the ongoing development of NFPA 5000, Building Construction and Safety Code®, as the members constitute major stakeholders in the design, permitting, and construction inspection and control process.
