This PennBOC meeting was held on the last day of the 2009 conference.


Domenic Sims began the conversation on residential sprinkler systems proposals currently in debate in the PA Legislature.  The review of the fee schedule by the legislature is in subcommittee. 


John Eby asked Domenic Sims to develop programs to meet the needs of the membership and to remain affordable to ICC Chapters.  Mr. Sims responded that chapter membership ideas are under discussion.  Ideas expressed involved joining with other like groups for Conferences.  Further questions to Mr. Sims included testing preparation and paper and pencil tests.  Mr. Sims responded with the challenges of how many times a particular test is offered in one year and the scheduled test dates corresponding with test preparation.

Shawn discussed two additional points: Irv Spoonhour was suspending efforts to offer code updates.  PCCA is moving ahead with this training.  A decision needs to be made on conference dates before the January meeting.  Gil has contacted the Pittsburgh Convention and Vistors Bureau and urged coordination between members for same.  Conference and Membership committees to meet before the January BOD meeting.  The annual conference time of the year is to remain the same, the third week in October.
