Shawn Merriman, CBCO
It is a great honour to serve on the board of the OBOA. Looking at all of my colleagues who have served and or continue to serve reminds me of the esteemed group I have joined. Looking back over almost 10 years, it is amazing how much has changed. When I first became a building inspector, I was given some advice which has proven to be consistent during this time. The first was, join the OBOA because the amount of assistance, help, training and networking you will receive, to quote a commercial is “priceless”. Second, a good building official is one whom can obtain compliance without having to utilize the judicial system.
