This Week at MHISC

– August 20, 2021 –

We’ve been closely involved with the building code writing process for SC’s new version of the IRC. That includes attending all the Study Committee meetings where they are considering amendments to the code.   Today we sent a copy of the pending building code and proposed amendments to every member manufacturer so they can catch any problems with the new code before it is finalized.  

We’re writing and editing the articles for Update magazine, the association’s best known publication.    (We just completed a MODern Times newsletter and took it to the mail house this week. We believe it is the nation’s only magazine dedicated to developments in the modular industry in a specific state. )

Matt Koch, our very sharp new Local Government Affairs Director has absorbed a tremendous amount of expertise about the factory-built home industry.  He’ll now be hitting the road, visiting with local officials and members around the state.

We have a great staff at MHISC.  In addition to Matt:  Andrea Westmoreland, Deputy Executive Director; Shell Suber, Director of Government Affairs; and Clayton Evans, our Communication Coordinator.  Gail Fallaw is our helpful part-time Administrative Assistant who works three mornings a week.
