Welcome Message from the BOAT President, Selso A. Mata, AIA, CBO
Hello and welcome to our Building Officials Association of Texas website. We have updated our content with a fresh clean look that reflects well on our chapter organization and our clear message to enhance the professionalism of our members.
Here you will find information about our purpose, our constitution, news, and events planned for the year. BOAT also recognizes the good work of our building departments with awards for code professionals, administrative support, code enforcement, and chapter recognition. Each year we give scholarships to deserving students helping promote our highest goals of education. To date, we have provided over $20,000.00 dollars in educational funding. Another key mission of our chapter is code education. Our Building Professionals Institutes are organized to provide the latest code educational seminars four times a year in different locations throughout our great State of Texas. BOAT also helps cities in need of immediate assistance in emergency weather occurrences or disaster relief. BOAT recently enhanced its efforts with a Disaster Response Team and a fully equipped trailer.
We continue to promote safe building construction, consistent use of ICC codes, and to remain a responsible resource advancing the building industry. Through our membership support, BOAT is committed to building a strong and safe Texas!
Registration for the 24th Annual Arlington Business Professional Institute (BPI) is now open! For more information on the four days of training and education, please follow this link to the BPI of our website.
