Dear CALBO members,
Get on board, and hang on for a great ride! It's a new year for CALBO!
First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for a very successful 2014 CALBO Annual Business Meeting. Many thanks to all involved, including the members, colleagues, consultants, vendors, speakers, staff, guests and volunteers. It was a tremendous effort, and we have received very positive feedback for a job well done.
CALBO and ICC recently partnered to develop new Handbooks designed to give design professionals and code administrators an understanding of the latest structural and non structural updates to the California Building and Residential Codes. The Significant Changes to the California Residential Code, 2013 Edition and the Significant Changes to the California Building Code, 2013 Edition, provide a discussion of these changes accompanied by a photograph, real-world application example or an illustration to assist and enhance understanding. Both books are immediately available to assist local jurisdictions in code adoption and training at http://shop.iccsafe.org/
