Approval of Minutes
Chad Coffelt moved that the minutes of the December 18, 2012, meeting be approved as presented; Scott Karr seconded; and the motion passed unanimously.
There had been no Board actions since the previous meeting.
Volunteers to Serve on Committees
The volunteer lineup for 2013 was:
Membership (Subcommittee of Operations Committee)-co-chairs: Mark Polk and Bill Trout, Sr.; members: Bill Ballard, Alan Napoli, and Frank Herrick
Operations Committee-chair: Alan Napoli; members: Melissa Brill, Bill Watson, Mark Polk, and Nick Workman
Education Committee-co-chairs: Eirene Oliphant and Scott Karr; members: Bill Watson, Brad Henson, and Frank Herrick
Community Awareness Committee-co-chairs: Melissa Brill & Chad Coffelt; members: Brad Henson, Scott Karr, Bill Trout, Sr., and Nick Workman
Bylaws Committee-chair: Alan Napoli; members, Eirene Oliphant and Chad Coffelt
It was noted that Membership and Bylaws were both subcommittees of the Operations Committee under the current configuration. Alan moved to separate Bylaws out as a full-fledged committee as it had been in the past; Scott seconded the motion; and it was passed. There was a similar discussion concerning reviving the Pin Committee (formerly a one-person, free-standing committee), but it was left as a subcommittee of the Community Awareness Committee.
2013 Educational Offerings
Scott stated that the first of members' top two choices had been presented, and it was time to present the second. Alan said that might need to be rethought as he understood KCMAPT would be providing the same class in Gladstone. Melissa suggested resurveying members.
Brad noted that Johnson County Contractor Licensing would be sponsoring training on the transition from the 2000 to the 2012 codes on March 4 and 8, 2013, from 7:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Melissa was to check what educational and other options would be offered in place of Chapter Rewards. Craig noted that those services might be reduced or eliminated due to ICC's financial issues as outlined by Richard Hauffe during the ABM.
2013 Meeting Schedule
Evening meeting hosts would be Grandview (April), Kearney (July), and Olathe (October).
The schedule would remain the same as the prior year's-meetings on the third Wednesday of each month, with lunch training sessions except for the noted evening meetings and the Annual Business Meeting in December.
Chad stated he would like to see more meetings north of the river. There was a Golden Corral with a meeting room that Scott would consider in scheduling future meetings.
2013 Code Development Hearings
Craig advised they would be held April 21 through 30, 2013, in Dallas, Texas. They would cover the group B codes (IFC, IECC, Administrative Code, and Wildland/Urban Interface).
Eirene might be attending. She noted that the following year, the Green Code would be up for modification, followed by Building, Mechanical, Plumbing, and Gas the following year.
Final actions would take place in October, 2013.
Chad said he might have a code change. The IRC said four or more dwellings or sleeping units under one roof must be changed to R3. Ken Hoffman said he understood it was referencing rental units in the code definition. Chad said all it said was "no kitchenette."
Scott asked about the 2012 codes and the party from Olathe attempting to seek changes. Brad thought that was no longer on track. He had a good handle on who was doing what with regard to the 2012 codes and their schedules because he had done the 2012 Code Adoption Process spreadsheet posted on the Metro Chapter's website. Ken stated that all of Johnson County would be on the 2012 codes by August, 2013, with Lenexa switching over last. Alan stated that Gladstone would go to the 2012 in February, 2013.
Picking up cost of meals
Eirene stated that another professional organization in which she participated covered the cost of meals with membership fees. She asked whether the Metro Chapter might consider doing likewise. Concerns raised included that it might drive the cost of membership too high, especially for those whose employers no longer picked up the tab; and that it might result in some nonmembers/unpaid past members attending and not having anyone to act as a bouncer. It was decided that the subject should be tabled and revisited in future.
Scholarships and student memberships
Bill asked about offering scholarships to cover the cost of membership and meals to get college students and high school seniors involved in the Chapter, introduce them to what inspectors did, and otherwise help educate them.
Scott stated the Metro Chapter had donated code books in the past.
Ken suggested partnering with a local vocational-technical school. He was concerned with the aging of the current Chapter members and leaders and would like to bring in some new, younger folks to take over.
It was noted the bylaws did not currently have a membership category for students but one could be added. Craig asked the Bylaws Committee to set one up.
Advertisement for student members and the scholarships could be done through trades publications, Pittsburg State University, Vatterott College, Warrensburg, University of Kansas, Kansas State University, Metropolitan Community College, Johnson County Community College, the Excelsior Springs Job Corps, and/or via announcement or e-mail to Metro Chapter members.
There was some discussion of there being plenty of money in the various accounts to support two or three scholarships, up to $500.00 each.
Alan suggested working with a specific school each year on student member scholarships.
A committee would need to be created to handle the research and draft a policy on student membership scholarships. It could be left to the Board's discretion how many to award, up to a set maximum. Winners could be formally announced at the Metro Chapter ABM. Brad would look into it.
Ken questioned why the Heart of America ABM attendees got so much free swag, including chapter logo jackets, which they then all wore for their photo at the ICC ABM; but the Metro Chapter did not. Alan explained that they were the official Kansas chapter, KCMAPT notwithstanding; so they got one photo. Missouri had multiple active chapters, but there was only one photo per state. So everyone would have different jackets in any case. Ken asked about taking separate photos for each Missouri chapter.
It was noted that chapter logo jackets would be nice but did not have to be paid for by the Metro Chapter. Craig stated there was someone in his office who could order shirts with the logo.
Eirene was to send the logo file to Chad to convert to a vector file for use in ordering the logo merchandise.
ICC Codes and Standards Committee
Craig stated that ICC was accepting applications to fill two vacancies on the committee.
Chapter Mug Giveaway
Drawing winners were Chad and Craig.
