    I am starting a topic to provide a place to concentrate on Association naming suggestions.

    Add your new suggestions to the end of this message. I added a few as an example. If anyone finds suggestions from another post that I missed, feel free to cut and paste. So far, I have the following suggestions in red from previous posts:

    International Association of Professional Code Enforcement Officials

    International Association of Professional Home Inspectors (not a good fit)

    International Association of Professional Building Code Officials

    International Association of Professional Building Inspectors

    International Association of Professional Officials and Code Bureaucrats and Businessmen

    I'm A Poster On the Code Bulletin Board

    Codes and Standards Association

    Independent Code and Standards Users Group

    Independent Code Officials

    Independent Code Officials Association

    Been thinking about this. I cut my teeth in BOCA land. But I do really like International Conference of Building Officials (ICBO) as a association title.

    In retrospect perhaps rjj is right. I do still like ICBO but perhaps "international" has a bad conotation?

    International Associations are welcoming for other countries such as Canada, Dubai, UK and other code progressive countries. Look at the IAEI for electrical inspectors which has a very strong Canadian membership. Don't limit yourself.

    How about... the 'Building Code Message Board'? It's already noticeably more successful than the new ICC BB!

    If anyone is suggesting names, please make sure that there is at the very least a .org website available for the name you would prefer

    Since some of us are not yet code officials or building officials I like the "Codes and Standards Association"

    Or Codes and Standards Organization.

    Or International Codes and Standards Organization.

    Still a true fan -- even if I have to use a sippy cup this year :(

    BCMBA Sounds good to me - Bldg. Code Message Board Association -

    Don't have any other agenda except for maintiaing an open forum for Building Code, Contract issues, and general info discussions.
