Don’t forget that the grace period for using the 2015 codes, including the 2014 NEC ends on March 2nd, and on March 3rd all new applications submitted to our respective code enforcement offices must be designed to meet the requirements of the 2018 editions of the I codes, the National Standard Plumbing Code, and the 2017 NEC.


Our next meeting will be held on

March 4th, 2020.

See you at the Cornerstone restaurant at 48 Broadway Hillsdale NJ 07642

Our guest speaker for this meeting will be Val DeNoia from Weyerhaeuser who I’m sure will speak on truss joist products and the interaction with the IBC and the IRC, and any new important information we should hear about.

 Bring your code questions and comments, and also any topics you’d like to discuss at our regular meetings

 


  February’s Meeting – February 5th, 2020,

 was held at a new venue, the Crow’s Nest Restaurant,

309 Vincent Avenue, (Rt. 17) Hackensack NJ

We’re hoping our members think it’s a good location for future meetings, but let us know your thoughts. We would also like to hold meetings in Passaic County as well and are thinking of going back to Amore in West Paterson. Any thoughts as to that location? Our email addresses appear on our Officers and Directors page.

Well, we had our swearing in ceremony for our upcoming year’s Executive Board followed by our annual Christmas party. We hope all attendees had an enjoyable evening, and we’d like to hear from you to let us know if you did. It was a new venture for the Association where we had a catered affair in a rented hall, with live and DJ music. How did we do?


Congratulations to all newly sworn in Officers and Directors 


Contact President Tabback if you’re interested in serving on a committee. Committees can be found on the Committees page.

The slate of Officers and Directors for 2020 was read at the September Meeting. The slate was read again at the regular October meeting where nominations were called for from the floor.  Seeing none, the nominations were closed. At the November meeting, the Secretary cast one ballot for the slate as presented, and the Officers and Directors will be sworn in at the December meeting/installation dinner. Come show your support. 

The 2020 slate is as follows: Mike Tabback – President

                                                  Ernie Sisco – Vice President

                                                  Anthony Merlino – Secretary

                                                  Jim Zaconie – Director 

                                                  Bob Cellini – Director

                                                                      Directors terms are for three years.

The October 2nd meeting was a beefsteak affair at Fire Company 2 in Wayne NJ. There was a short presentation regarding Superior Walls and problems with the product when not properly installed, and when standard footing and foundation systems are originally proposed for new construction, but substituted without prior notice to building departments. Another issue is the footings and walls are being installed without footing inspections. Preempt problems by discussing this with contractors before permits are issued. let them know plans are required before a change like this takes place, and let them know that footing inspections for Superior Walls are required just the same as conventional footings and foundations.


Our annual golf outing was held on September 25th at the Farmstead Country Club and deemed to be another huge success. Proceeds are used for our Scholarship fund which helps our children while attending college. Many thanks to Ernie Sisco and his committee for their hard work in making the outing the success it always turns out to be.


Our regular meeting on June 5, 2019 was held at Francesco’s Restaurant in Woodland Park. Dave Eisenhardt, a representative from Blue Linx spoke about their engineered products and the relation to our building codes.

The BPMIA-Felix Esposito Hospitality Room was open in Bally’s Casino in Atlantic City on  May 1st and 2nd, 2019 during the NJ Building Safety Conference. I’d call it a success.
