MAKING MOTIONS AT THE IAPMO ASSOCIATION TECHNICAL MEETING

During our Annual Education and Business Conference, we will be conducting the Association Technical Meeting and this is essentially an opportunity to advocate your position in accordance with any of the following technical committee reports and motions.

The session will be conducted as follows:

  1. The Moderator will review the rules at the start of the session.
  2. The Moderator will remind everyone that all discussions will be based on actions taken by the Plumbing and Mechanical Technical Committees as published in the Report on Comments and Report on Proposals. Each participant should come prepared with a copy of the UPC and UMC Report on Comments and Report on Proposals.
  3. Beginning with the respective code (UPC or UMC), the Moderator will call for motions starting with Chapter 1 and continue in numerical order of chapters and conclude with the Appendices. A motion may be made to any item located in the ROP or ROC. At the conclusion of the session we will call for any remaining motions related to the respective code.
  4. Any person who submitted a proposal or comment may make a motion (or a specifically designated representative in advance). Additionally, anyone can make a motion if there was a modification in the ROC. Motions that are in order consist of suggested revisions to proposals, comments or return the Technical Committee Report for further study or statement for the record. A person making the motion must fill out a card with correct information prior to the start of the meeting.
  5. For those of you who are planning to make a motion during the session please state your name and affiliation, clearly state the motion (proposal or comment number with the page number in the ROP or ROC) and wait for a second. Once the second has been recognized by the chair, proceed with discussion. For discussion purposes please keep the information simple and to the point, refer to statements and ballots in the ROP or ROC. Audio and visual presentations are prohibited. Any handouts please present to IAPMO staff for approval.
