First, on behalf of the officers of COAA, I would like to thank the members for electing us to lead the Code Officials Association of Alabama in the coming year. The Board has already had our first meeting, and is looking forward to the challenges ahead.
I would like to thank the many volunteers that serve on different committees. Without the gift of your time and talent, it would be impossible for this organization to function. Please consider volunteering or serving if asked. After all, it is “OUR” organization, and many hands make for a lighter load for all of us. I also need to thank the vendors who support our conference and provide additional training for our members not just at our conference, but throughout the year. It would be very difficult for our members to maintain their ICC certifications without your support.
In the coming months, I will try to visit as many Chapters and State Boards as possible. My goal is to find ideas to make COAA more effective and helpful for our members.
I look forward to working with you, and hope that you will be willing to work with us in the coming year.
Thank you and God Bless
