Allen Inlow, former chief executive officer of the PHCC-NA, was named senior director of codes and standards for the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials. Inlow will organize a new Washington, D.C.-area office for the California-based association and be in charge of providing services to the eastern and southern United States, Canada and throughout the Caribbean.

"Although service to all inspectors and users of IAPMO codes and standards is our primary objective in opening the office," said President Gilbert Kissling in prepared remarks, "obviously the world headquarters of IAPMO will use it as a major resource in working with the agencies of the federal government and our organizational partners throughout the industry."

Inlow resigned from the PHCC-NA last March. Plans for the new office were still in the works at press time.
