The Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry anticipates it will adopt the 2012 International Code Council construction model codes and Minnesota-specific amendments in January 2015. AIA Minnesota is working with the State Construction Codes and Licensing Division to schedule continuing education classes that are specifically intended for architects.

A 3-hour seminar on the new International Residential Code and Minnesota amendments has been scheduled for September 26 both as a face-to-face presentation in St. Paul as well as webinar in Duluth. The site in Rochester has been canceled due to low registration numbers. The course will review Minnesota Rules, chapter 1309 and provide background information and explanations focusing on amendments for the 2012 IRC. Plan to attend!
