The NYS Fire Marshals and Inspectors Association would like to thank Rob Drexler for his service with the International Code Council.
This past October Rob Drexler finished serving as a Director for the International Code Council (ICC). Rob started his service to the ICC in 2011 being elected as a Director at Large. Director Drexler ran again in 2013 and completed the three year term this past October.
While serving on the Board of Directors Rob served on the following committees:
Resolutions (Chair 2011-12)
Bylaws Committee (Chair 2012-13)
Awards Committee (Chair 2014-15)
CEO Evaluation Committee
Board Steering Committee on Remote Participation
Building Officials Membership Council Liaison (2012-16)
Fire Service Membership Council Liaison (2011-12)
Rob put a lot of time and effort into his service to the ICC. Speaking with Rob it was not just the service to the ICC that served as his motivation, it was knowing he was part of a team that was making a difference by improving building safety throughout the country that drove him to the top of his game.
Rob’s highlight of his five years was testifying before the United States Congressional Veterans Administration Sub Committee on Health. While there he testified for a bill to provide safe housing for homeless veterans. Rob stated the importance that housing subsidized by the Department of Veterans Affairs is protected from the perils of fires, floods, other natural disasters, and code compliant.
