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).

A Word from the President


message from the president


My term as President for this wonderful Chapter will soon come to an end. I would like to take this moment to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation to our Board of Directors and all of the chapter members. I've had the honor and privilege of working alongside many wonderful leaders and meeting many wonderful chapter members. I know I have learned from all of them as much as they have from me. Everyone has made my experience on the board especially these past two years as President, a wonderful and memorable experience. I look forward to seeing the chapter grow and get even better with its new incoming President and Board of Directors. I wish the new President and Board of Directors and all the chapter members all the best. Thank you for your continued support.
