Virginia Chapter Move Back to Two-Day Event A Success


The Virginia Chapter's 80th Annual Meeting in Richmond, VA at the Hilton Garden Inn on June 26-28, 2016 was very well attended and the move back to a 2-day event was successful.

The meeting covered questions critical to performing electrical inspections answered by a panel of nationally ecognized experts. We met and discussed code issues with current and past Code Making Panel members.  We also found out how other jurisdictions around the State and beyond are addressing specific code requirements.
