I am writing to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation for your commitment and past membership with the Pennsylvania Association of Building Code Officials (PABCO). As the PABCO President, it is with great pride and honor that I recognize the invaluable contributions countless individuals have made to PABCO, the building safety profession, and the Municipalities you serve as a code official.

Your hard work, passion, and commitment have been instrumental in advancing our overall mission of promoting building safety and increasing health, safety, and welfare in Pennsylvania for nearly 20 years.

Over the past many months, PABCO leadership has debated the best manner to advance our mission of educating Pennsylvania’s state legislature, the general public, and fellow code officials about building safety issues impacting our Commonwealth.

At its March 2024 meeting, PABCO’s Board of Directors unanimously agreed to dissolve our association (effective April 30, 2024) and combine our members’ voices with a similarly focused nonprofit organization for code officials: the Pennsylvania Building Officials Conference (PENNBOC).

While this action is not an official merger of the two organizations, PABCO has negotiated with PENNBOC for them to provide free 2024 membership in their organization to every PABCO member from the last four years who is not already a current member of PENNBOC.

PABCO has also reached an agreement with PENNBOC for them to expand their legislative monitoring & educational outreach efforts with the aid and input of former PABCO members.

Before April 30th, please provide the names & contact details for the individuals/employees at your organization who should be considered for free PENNBOC membership by completing THIS FORM.

Likewise, if you would like to be considered for the Legislative Affairs Committee, please complete THIS FORM.

A stronger, unified voice for code officials will be more beneficial in the long run.  I am confident that with individuals like you leading the way, we will continue to thrive and make significant strides in promoting building safety and code compliance across the Commonwealth.

On behalf of the PABCO Board of Directors, I hope you will join us in this new undertaking for our profession.
