“For the last 18 months, they have been co-chairs of VBCOA’s first ad hoc committee for permit technicians. Their assignment was not an easy one, as they were asked to find and show how permit technicians fit into VBCOA and how VBCOA can help the Permit Technicians be part of our organization,” said Bridges. “Neither of them backed away from this challenge, but instead both embraced the opportunity to finally be recognized as the essential part of building department staff that they are.”

He continued, “Neither were deterred, instead that fueled their desire to succeed.  And succeed they have. They have not just sought out permit technicians and other front line staff, but have already put together training programs, taken on activities to represent VBCOA’s interests at DPOR, conducted regular meetings and now have a strong network of professionals throughout Virginia.”
