The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) wrapped up its 86th annual Education and Business Conference at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas Thursday. IAPMO President Bruce Pfeiffer offered closing remarks and CEO GP Russ Chaney presented the annual report. Pfeiffer said 2015 was a year filled with exciting changes.

“The ‘Live by the Code’ campaign was launched by our marketing department and has quickly become the new catchphrase of our association,” he said. “The goal of this promotion is to emphasize that IAPMO, a business based on the development of codes and standards, has evolved into an organization with an equal focus on the global conservation, preservation, and sustainability of our natural resources.”

Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard

Chaney said a draft document of the 2017 Water Efficiency and Sanitation Standard (WE-Stand) was published on IAPMO’s website and a call for formal proposals made.

The standard, which will use as its basis the water and sanitation provisions within IAPMO’s 2015 Green Plumbing and Mechanical Code Supplement (GPMCS), draws upon IAPMO’s core competency and industry expertise in plumbing systems for the purpose of providing comprehensive requirements to optimize water use practices attributed to the built environment while maintaining protection of the public health, safety and welfare.

Board members elected

Resolutions honoring individuals contributing to the conference’s success were announced and elections for the association’s board of directors were held.

Rex Crawford, chief plumbing inspector for the City of Lincoln, Nebraska, was elected director in the Northern District.

The following board members were re-elected to another term: Bruce Pfeiffer, president; DJ Nunez, vice president; Marty Cooper, director in the Central District; David Gans, director in the Southern District; Kenneth Borski, director in the Southern District; Ed Gormley, director-at-large, contractor.

The individuals were formally installed at the conference-ending installation of officers’ dinner Thursday evening.
