The West Virginia Chapter of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors welcomes you to our website. We also host a chapter Facebook page which we invite you to follow.
The Chapter would like to invite you to attend our meetings and join the IAEI.
2020 Educational Seminars
With the recent events surrounding COVID-19, we tried to move our Spring meetings to June. Given the uncertain progression of this virus, we have decided to cancel our Spring meetings.
Because we will be cancelling the meeting, and so that we don’t hold registration checks till Fall, we will be returning registration forms and checks that are already received. Our
Fall meetings are tentatively scheduled for October 27th in Fairmont and October 29th in Nitro.
Given the fact that many face-to-face trainings are being cancelled, online trainings are becoming available. Please follow our Facebook page (West Virginia Chapter IAEI), this Chapter website at www.iaei.org/westvirginia, or watch for emails. We will post those opportunities as they become available.
For all the heroes large and small, thank you for all you are doing in these uncertain times. Stay safe and healthy.
Jack E. Jamison, Jr.
Secretary, WV Chapter IAEI

West Virginia Building Codes
On March 14, 2016 the State of West Virginia legislature voted to adopt the new building code rules package with an effective date of July 1, 2016. The new rules package includes the following 2015 ICC Family of codes which includes the IBC, IRC with the deletion of chapter 11 (Energy Code), IPC, IMC, IFGC, IPMC, 2009 IECC (Residential), 2007 ANSI/ASHRE standard 90.1 (Commercial), 2015 IEBC, 2015 ISPSC, and the 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) without amendments. This action demonstrates the state Fire Marshal's office as well as the legislature's dedication to electrical and building safety for all citizens of the state. Source: NEMA Code Alert
