Chapter Picnic was April 18th and a good time was had by all
Legislative Day in Tallahassee was March 18th there were 25 members that attended, everyone represented BOAF well and contributed greatly to efforts to tell our story to the decision makers in Tallahassee. The State BOAF was represented well this year but it alway carries a greater impact the more people we have attending and we hope more can go next year.
On the righthand menu click archives. You will have to register in order to view the live webinar sessions. No registration is necessary to view the archived sessions. These are NOT approved for BCAIB CEUs but are very informative nonetheless.
We have books available from the International family of codes which is the base code for the Florida Building Code Effective 12/31/14. These were the books from the November ICC training class hosted by our chapter.

State BOAF site seminars provide future training opportunites. This training qualifies for CEU credits for Engineers and Contractors but unfortunately the approval is pending for Architects.
