The State of Wisconsin is divided into four regions; each region has its own association and leadership. The philosophies and objectives of these four regions are the same and we share information and often train in each other’s area. A few times each year representatives from each region meet to discuss code changes, state issues, exchange information and reinforce our unity and continuity.
In addition to the four regions there is the League of Wisconsin Municipalities. It is a nonprofit and nonpartisan association of cities and villages working to advance municipal government. Established in 1898, the League acts as information clearing house, lobbying organization and legal resource for Wisconsin municipalities.
Within the League of Wisconsin Municipalities is the Building Inspector Institute. The Institute is administered by inspectors representing the states four Building Inspectors Associations. The League sponsors a conference, once a year, for the four regions. It is a great opportunity for training with other inspectors from the four corners of the state. Also in addition to the training, during the conference, the institute holds its Building Inspector Institute annual meeting. It is always interesting to have discussions with and hear about the problems and issues other, far away, inspectors have and to discover that they have the same problems and issues as you.
The following inspector associations would welcome you to explore their web sites, so please feel free to enjoy.
