The Coastal Georgia Inspectors Association (CGIA) received the 2023 Chapter of the Year award from the Building Officials Association of Georgia (BOAG) at the recent annual conference held, May 14-18 on St. Simons Island.
The award recognizes the efforts of CGIA member inspectors, code enforcement professionals, engineers, and others within the building community for outstanding service and accomplishments.
The nomination for this award is due to the rapid growth along coastal Georgia, which increases the need to keep up to date on training, certifications, and requires additional cooperation between city and county code and building inspection departments. The mission of CGIA is to also promote the objectives of the International Code Council and the BOAG and provide a more uniform interpretation and enforcement of construction codes throughout our coastal region.
Bryan County Code Enforcement Officer Tiffany Maxwell and 2022 president for CGIA accepted the award on behalf of the chapter.
“We’re so excited to be recognized for this award," Maxwell said. " It shows that building departments in counties and cities across Georgia holds CGIA up as a model chapter. We will work our hardest to continue our work and maybe win again next year.”
Maxwell has also served on the Board of Directors for BOAG, as Chapter Director for CGIA, is currently serving as Secretary, and has worked in Code Enforcement for Bryan County since 2019.
CGIA is one of 11 local chapters covering the state of Georgia, which are all a part of BOAG.
