As you likely have noticed, MABOI.com got a remodel with the recent MABFO Mega-Conference. With the new website came some new updated tools in the background. MABOI is working to ensure those tools are working correctly. Until completed, you may see posts in e-mailed newsletters, the site, and the Facebook items at weird times or multiple times a day. We apologize for any inconvenience as we labor to improve our delivery methods to membership. Thanks.
For those of you that had the opportunity, thank you for attending the Missouri Association of Building and Fire Officials (MABFO) 2015 Education Conference (the “mega-conference”). MABOI was one of the multiple organizations providing the event, and we were pleased with the success. We hope you went home with great contacts and some new knowledge.
Special thanks to Dominic Sims, CEO of International Code Council (ICC), and Alex “Cash” Olszowy III, Vice President of the ICC Board of Directors for the keynote speeches at the conference.
We hope to see you October 16–18, 2016 in Kansas City, Missouri.

The MABOI Board of Directors voted during the June 2015 to approve a proposed revision of the ByLaws of the organization. The next step is a vote by membership, which will be held during lunch at the September 17, 2015 election.
The following outlines the major proposed changes:
- Expanding the method of providing notice
- Expansion of the duties of the Auditing Committee
- Creating a Technology Committee
- Modernizing some language and abilities
- Clarification of confusing or contradictory language
- Changing some dates to better reflect current strategies
A complete copy of the by-laws showing changes can be found at the following link:
As many of you know, MABOI will not host an annual conference at the lake this fall. Instead, MABOI will co-host the “mega conference” held July 27-29, 2015 at Tan-tar-a. The “Mega Conference” will be co-hosted by 8 different organizations (including MABOI) across the state of Missouri.
For those of you interested in reserving your room, the room code is “FMAM.”
