Welcome to the Idaho Association of Building Officials (IDABO). I will start by thanking the Past Presidents for their leadership, for our organization. For those you that are new to IDABO a little history. IDABO was first organized as a State organization 1958 and is currently a Chapter of the International Code Council. IDABO is made up of five (5) local chapters (see the map on the Home Page) that give local representation to the State Chapter.

With IDABO’s mission to serve the citizens of Idaho and promote public health and welfare by facilitating safe and accessible buildings and by educating citizens and elected officials on Idaho codes and standards. IDABO will continue to improve relationships through ‘bridge building’ efforts with other groups and associations. IDABO will continue to provide training though our annual Educational Institute which will be held in North Idaho January of 2015. We are working with our local chapters continue what we call uniformity training so that the different jurisdictions can discuss how they treat different elements of inspection of construction.

We very excited about the continued support from the Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance for the Idaho Energy Circuit Rider. This program has provided local jurisdictions technical resources and is acting as a clearinghouse for energy code questions again for uniformity for Idaho.
