In March, Hinesville Director of Inspections Steve Welborn was elected to serve as director for Georgia to the International Code Council for Region 8. A month later, Welborn was selected to serve as the Coastal Georgia Inspectors Association’s representative to the Building Officials Association of Georgia.
The ICC is a membership association dedicated to building safety and fire prevention. It develops the codes and standards used to construct residential and commercial buildings, including homes and schools.
As director for Georgia, Welborn will be responsible for ensuring that his colleagues in the building safety and construction industry throughout the state are informed of any code issues such as hearings, amendments or changes made during code advisory task force committee meetings.   
The Coastal Georgia Inspectors Association’s Building Officials Association of Georgia exists to review building regulatory issues in the state and the nation.
The International Code Council and the Building Officials Association of Georgia partnered to develop a greater understanding of code harmonization, acceptance of accreditation and recognition of the commonality of each organization’s endeavors.
“It is an honor to serve on these boards,” Welborn said. “It is my goal to be a working member who serves the organizations well and is able to give something back to a community and city that supports me.”   
Since his appointments to the boards, Welborn was chosen to serve as chairman of the education committee for the Building Officials Association of Georgia and is a member of the codes interpretation committee.
