IAEI Section Meetings
Here’s the IAEI resource for you: www.iaei.org/page/section-meetings
The topic of the section meetings across the country is probably going to be focused on the 2023 version of the NEC. The Western Section meeting will have a review Code Panel by Code Panel to review all of the key changes for this important resource. The meeting will be kicked off by the correlating committee chair, Mr. Larry Ayer, and David Williams one of the IAEI representatives on the committee.
The section meetings are great opportunities to engage. You should find the section meeting in your part of the world and plan to be there.
IAEI Western Section is collecting questions for the meeting. If you have a code question please use the following link and get it in the que. We take these questions and get to the our panel of experts for them to be answered during the Western Section meeting. If you know of a common question you get, please share it. This is how we learn.
