79th Annual Meeting a Great Success!


The Virginia Chapter 79th Annual Meeting in Williamsburg Virginia June 28th and 29th was well attended by 72 people from across the Commonwealth. Our panel of nationally recognized instructors did a fantastic job in answering a list of very relevant code questions that will be important to the inspection and contracting community as Virginia moves forward with code adoption.

The Virginia Chapter was proud to have our Southern Section President Bert Wiens swear in our new President Mr. Tommy Mackey of Chesterfield County as well as rest of our new Board of Directors.

Special Congratulations to Mr. Paul Sood of The city of Alexandria who received the Wayne A. Lilly Longtime Service Award in recognition of his many years of outstanding service to IAEI at the Chapter, Section and National level.
