The board voted this week to approve renaming the membership grade for AHJ's to "Enforcement Official" for the purpose of removing the "in uniform" requirement and making clear that the no-cost membership grade is available to all public officials who help keep our communities safe. The membership grade description has been edited to now read as follows:
Enforcement Officer - a public official that is the Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ) or other code enforcement or safety officer. These include the Fire Department, the Police and Sheriff departments, and municipal code officials.
As one of our board members is already a member of this grade, the table was updated to reflect that an Enforcement Officer can hold a chapter position with board approval.
