ICC Conference - Kansas City               

 /Portals/12/2016/2016 AFC/General Information cdpaAccess.pdf

To further enhance the code development process, the ICC has created a new easy, user-friendly program that gives you a strong voice in the contents of the next edition of the I-Codes. Called cdpACCESS, COCM members who qualify, but are unable to attend the October hearings in Kansas City, will be able to cast the final vote on proposed code changes to the 2018 I-Codes from their computer. Online voting is expected to be open from November 7 through 21.  You don’t have to vote all at once. You can spread your voting over the 14 days. You don’t have to vote on every proposed change. You can change any vote right up until the voting closes.  But, in order to vote, you must be a validated governmental member voting representative by Monday, September 19, 2016. 

Governmental units which were members of ICC by March 18, 2016 are eligible to have 4, 8 or 12 voters depending on their population. Voters must be verified by the member’s primary representative every year via an online questionnaire so don’t assume you’re already eligible. Michigan has over 1,400 potentially eligible voters. As of the beginning of August only 64 were verified voters.  If you don’t know if your governmental unit is a member, who your primary contact is, or if you run into any other problems, ICC member Services staffers are available to help at or at 888-ICC-SAFE (888-422-7233) x33804.

 This is our opportunity to have a real influence on the contents of the codes. Let’s make sure we take it.
