December 15, 2020

CHICAGO – The International Code Council (ICC) Board announced the selection of Jonathan Flannery as a member of the 2021 Group A International Fire Code (IFC) Development Committee for the upcoming 2021-2022 Code Development Cycle with a valid term of January 1, 2021, through December 31, 2023.

The code development committee evaluates and makes recommendations regarding proposed changes to the codes. Their suggestions are then subject to public comment and council-wide votes. The ICC's governmental members — public safety officials who have no financial or business interest in the outcome — cast the final votes on proposed changes. The IFC is designed to meet the need for a modern, up-to-date fire code through model code regulations that safeguard the public health and safety in all communities, large and small.

“Jonathan’s appointment as a member of the 2021 Group A IFC Code Development Committee is the culmination of many years of hard work and commitment to public safety,” said ASHE’s Deputy Executive Director Chad Beebe. 

Jonathan Flannery, MHSA, CHFM, FASHE, FACHE is currently the senior associate director of advocacy at ASHE. Jonathan also has a Master’s degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in Health Services Administration.
