Southwest Washington ICC Chapter
The Outstanding Educational Achievement Award is to honor ICC Chapters and the members that are leaders in educating building code administration and enforcement professionals in standards of professionalism. WABO was pleased to present this award to the Southwest Washington Chapter of ICC. Under the leadership of Lou Malattia, Dave Johnson and Bob Jones, this chapter has worked hard to increase their educational offerings to southwest Washington. They are currently planning their third annual fall seminar for October in Vancouver with several dedicated volunteers. They continue to increase attendance and provide quality education to their members.

City of Vancouver and Clark County
The WABO Jurisdictional Outreach Award went to both City of Vancouver
and Clark County for their innovative public outreach projects last
year. They jointly sponsored a "birdhouse building" booth during
Building Safety Week to encourage youngsters to become involved in the
permit process. These two jurisdictions also work closely with OBOA on
the "Think Permit" outreach program.
