Andy Jones, CBCO
I would like to thank everyone for their encouragement and support in my appointment as the President-elect of the OBOA Board of Directors. I would also like to thank the Town of Gravenhurst, Mayor, Council, Management and Staff for giving me the opportunity to take part at this level.
I have been an OBOA member since 1991 when I started with the City of Barrie Building Department in the Simcoe County Chapter. In 2008 I moved to the Town of Bracebridge and the Muskoka /Parry Sound Chapter. I became a chapter chair in 2010, giving me the opportunity to meet a number of great people. I became the Chief Building Official in the Town of Gravenhurst in 2014.
It has been exciting to see the OBOA develop into the organization that it has become. We have gained respect from the industry as well as advancing the building officials' profession. The Board of Directors has worked very hard to ensure this happens. I am honored to be a part of such a fast-paced and forward-thinking board, and I look forward to working with the Board of Directors, the members, and the OBOA staff.
