This year's ICC Annual Conference and Building Safety & Design Expo in Columbus, Ohio, will bring together building safety professionals for plenty of opportunities to advance careers and network with peers. This year, ICC has added some new features and made changes to the way to experience the Annual Conference.
One example is a restructuring of how ICC's Awards are presented. This year, fewer awards will be presented during several events throughout the conference. Previously, almost all of the awards were presented at a single awards luncheon, which resulted in a very long program that often exceeded the time frame and spilled over into the afternoon session. ICC has repurposed the awards luncheon into a Members Luncheon, featuring Archie Griffin, Ohio State legend and the only two-time winner of the prestigious Heisman Trophy, as the keynote speaker. The extra time saved for after the Members Lunch will allow you to participate in a Meet and Greet with Griffin.
All awards will be announced during the Annual Business Meeting on Sept. 11. Here is the restructured schedule of ICC awards presentations: The International Code Council/Institute for Market Transformation Standard Bearers Awards, and the National Leadership in Sustainability and Energy Efficiency Awards will be held on Sunday, Sept. 10 during the Sustainability Membership Council Meeting; this year's Chapter Presidents' Meeting will feature award presentations for the ICC Chapter of the Year Award, ICC Chapter Merit Awards and the ICC Region Spotlight Award; and the Government Relations Forum will feature award presentations for the ICC Affiliate Award and ICC Meritorious Service Award.
The event will also celebrate outgoing ICC Board President Dwayne Garriss, and incoming President Jay Elbettar.
