DPD relies heavily on the advice of professionals and citizens in developing workable construction codes. Seattle’s Construction Codes Advisory Board (CCAB) is a 13-member voluntary board, appointed by the Mayor and confirmed by the City Council. CCAB advises DPD on proposed technical code amendments and on Director’s Rules related to those codes (building, residential, energy, fuel gas, electrical and mechanical codes) by providing input based on the members’ professional experience and point of view. CCAB also hears applicant appeals of department decisions and provides the code official with advisory opinions.
DPD is recruiting to fill the Construction Codes Advisory Board electrical contractor position. We are seeking qualified persons to apply for the position. Please let any interested party know about this available position. The term runs through June 2011.
CCAB meetings are held on an as-needed basis on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays of the month from noon until 2:00 p.m. in the Seattle Municipal Tower. Regular attendance is important for continuity and decision-making quorums. Seattle-based applicants are encouraged to apply. Residency is preferred, though not required. Applicants need not have their professional office within the City limits but should do a significant portion of their business within the City.
Interested parties may submit a resume and a letter of interest, by July 30, addressed to Mayor Greg Nickels, c/o Vicki Baucom, Code Development Analyst at email@example.com. In keeping with Mayor Nickels’ Paper Cuts program, electronic submissions are strongly encouraged.
