The North Texas Chapter is a non-profit organization serving the Code Official and the building industry.  We share information and network on a variety of building code issues promoting the safety of our built environment.  Today, our organization is represented by several municipal jurisdictions and private industry. 

The Chapter’s objective is to develop, recommend, and promote uniform regulations and legislation pertaining to building code construction, to encourage uniformity in zoning practice and code interpretation, and to promote the professionalism of the Code Official.  

We fully support the activities of the International Code Council and our regional organizations including the Building Professionals Institute, the Building Officials Association of Texas (BOAT), and The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG).

message from the president


We’re here for you.  Our goal in 2021 is to serve the needs of our members.  This is YOUR chapter, and we’re here for you.  Is there some training, or information we can provide – any comments, input, just us know at

Training.  With the 2021 codes coming out, we will continue to provide you the training and education you need.  With the help of our partner organizations, like BOAT, COG, and ICC, we’ll also keep you abreast of the COG amendments, actions going on at the state level, current events concerning building departments, and any other topics that might arise that you may need to know about.

Become a Member.  Monthly meetings are typically held on the third Friday of the month.  It’s easy to join us and get involved.  Did you know that if you attend our monthly meetings, you get 0.1 CEU of Preferred Provider credit?  Also, see what’s happening in other organizations, cities, ICC, and our Chapter.  Check out the Members tab for all the benefits available.

Networking.  This is a great place to get involved, meet other people, talk shop (code) or about what’s going on in the community.  Through networking in our association, you have a broad group of resources to draw upon.  You can use your networking opportunities to get to know each another a little better.
