Assigning Voting Representation

Primary contacts for Governmental Members may assign voting representation to themselves and employees or public officials during the code cycle.  This opportunity provides your staff with the ability to have their voice heard on proposed code changes and edits to the International Code Series. The allotted number of voting representatives is based on the population size of your jurisdiction. Visit the ICC By-laws for details.
