Upcoming CCO Meetings

53rd Biannual CCO Commissioners Meeting

  • Dates: October 21, 2022
  • Location: Phoenix, AZ
  • Time: 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

CCO will be hosting the Fall 2022 Examination Management Committee (EMC) meetings followed by the CCO 53rd Biannual Commissioners meeting in Phoenix, Arizona, from Monday, October 17, through Friday, October 21.

EMCs will be heavily focused on exam-development activities. If you would like to participate in any of these meetings, most Committees permit guest participation, provided a signed and Statement of Confidentiality agreement is completed in-person on the day of the meeting. Guests will be briefed on the examination development process and will participate in item writing.

Some EMC meetings, or portions thereof, may be closed to guests due to the content or topic being discussed. During those times, guests will be asked to excuse themselves so the EMC may meet in closed session. Please note that the Written & Practical Exam Management Committee—Mobile Cranes Meeting only permits guests who are members of another EMC or the Commission.

The Commission meeting is open, and guests are encouraged to come see the rigor in which CCO manages its programs.

In addition to the meetings, on October 20, 1 p.m.–5 p.m., the NCCCO Foundation is pleased to present the 7th Annual Industry Forum on Personnel Qualifications. Scott Ketcham, Director of OSHA’s Directorate of Construction, has been invited to provide the keynote address at the event for the fourth consecutive year. The Forum will build on the success of previous events and focus on the latest developments in regulations and best industry practices as they pertain to the qualifications of personnel working in, with, and around cranes and other types of lifting equipment.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Phoenix!
