OUR HISTORY

 

The WVCOA Board of Directors are trying to locate information on Building Officials, Inspectors and Plans Examiners from every city of county that adopted and enforces the State Building Code, from 1989 to the present.

                We are asking every jurisdiction to research their personnel records and forward the name and length of service, living or deceased, certifications if any, from 1989 or the time of State Building Code adoption. Please forward that info to:  Bob Cannon
Email:  rlcannnon@beckley.org
