Legislative and Codes Advisory Council

The ASID Legislative Advisory Council (LAC) develops and guides the ASID legislative and codes agenda. The LAC determines ASID positions on state and federal legislation, develops and implements ASID legislative strategy with HST, and works with individual chapters. The LCAC annually allocates legislative financial aid and staff and volunteer resources to coalitions and chapters.

The Codes Council develops and guides the Society's participation in codes development and adoption processes, including national, regional, and state-level building codes, as well as, other codes and standards affecting the built environment, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Additionally, the council develops and reviews specific code language, as well as strategies for participation in the development of codes, by specific code-writing organizations (International Codes Council, National Fire Protection Association).

The ASID headquarters staff liaison is Alexis deArmas. To reach a member of the Legislative Advisory Council or Codes Council (LCAC), please submit your inquiry to gpa@asid.org.
