President's Message

Welcome to the Idaho Association of Building Officials (IDABO). IDABO was first created as an organization in 1958, and currently is a chapter of the International Code Council. IDABO is a statewide organization consisting of representation from (5) regional local chapters and (1) statewide permit technician chapter.

The strength of our organization comes from our membership. We notably appreciate those that become involved to serve, whether as an officer or to serve on a committee to help our organization further its goals. We want to thank those that take the time to serve whether in the past, present or future.

IDABO’s mission includes serving the citizens of Idaho, promoting public health, safety and welfare by ensuring safe, accessible and efficient buildings. Involvement in updating codes and standards on a regular basis in Idaho and participation in code development nationally are essential. Education to members, citizens and elected officials is a priority. We strive to support uniformity and consistency in administering adopted codes.

IDABO is committed to providing quality training opportunities for continued education and learning not only for our members, but also to any involved in the built environment who desire to attend.

We appreciate the continued support from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance along with the resource of an Idaho Energy Circuit Rider. The Idaho Energy Circuit Rider is a free dedicated person that anyone can request statewide, in order to learn more or obtain assistance on energy code.

Please feel free to navigate our website to learn more about our organization.
