The International Code Council Board of Directors recently announced the appointment of 48 members to its Residential Energy Code Consensus Committee; Robin Yochum, energy program manager for the Nevada Governor’s Office of Energy, was selected as vice chair.

“I am proud to represent Nevada and the West in the development of residential energy codes internationally,” Yochum said in a June 21 press release. “As the newly appointed vice chair of the IECC Residential Energy Code Consensus Committee, I look forward to representing my colleagues in western states with a focus on building energy codes that reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve air quality for all residents.”

The ICC is the leading global source of model codes and standards and building safety solutions that include product evaluation, accreditation, technology, training and certification.

Yochum has been involved in Nevada’s adoption of the International Energy Conservation Code (IECC) since the beginning of her tenure at GOE in 2016.

“Robin’s thorough and consistent work in the IECC is a great benefit to Nevadans and all western states, and we are pleased to continue to support her involvement on behalf of Nevada,” GOE Director David Bobzien said in a statement.

Among other endeavors, Yochum, who has over 20 years of experience in residential and commercial construction, represents Nevada on the U.S. Climate Alliance Building and Appliance working groups, and the National Association of State Energy Officials (NASEO) Buildings Committee as one of the Co-Chairs.

She also is a Nevada Certified Contracts Manager, as well as a LEED Green Associate and is GPRO Certified for green building and sustainable practices.
