NMCOA UPDATE

 
 
 
NMCOA President Mike Keileszewski has decided to use an agenda format for future NMCOA Board meetings. Those who have an item they would like discussed at the NMCOA Board meetings will be given the opportunity to submit items to be included for discussion. If you have an item for the agenda, feel free to submit it by email to nmcoa75@gmail.com, no later than 5 days prior to the meeting.
 
 

The next virtual meeting for NMCOA is scheduled for April 23, 2021. NMCOA has two webinars scheduled for that day. The first will begin with the usual brief business meeting at 9:00 a.m.  The programs to be held virtually include:

Those wishing to participate will need to register for each webinar individually. A separate email for each webinar registration will be sent sometime next week.  Be sure to provide proper spelling in your entries as well as your State issued Inspector Registration/License number during registration. Corrections and the insertion of incorrect or missing information will not be by NMCOA. Additionally, if you fail to participate for the full webinar time, your name will be removed from the attendee list that will be posted on the website. 

As discussed at last month’s presentation, NMCOA has fallen short on the number of participating jurisdictions in the NMCOA MADCAD subscription for 2021. The Board will be looking at options for this program and how NMCOA can continue to provide this valuable resource of code referenced standards to its members as a reasonable cost. 

The referenced standards, as noted in the codes, are actually considered part of the code. You can find this reference in Section R102.4 of the 2015 MRC, and Section 101.4 of the 2015 MBC. Similar references can be found in the electrical rules, the mechanical and the plumbing codes. This means that the code books only contain part of the requirements of the code. Without access to the referenced standards, how does an inspector perform their duties as code officials?  

The cost to have the referenced standards as a physical library are far more costly than many jurisdictions can afford. The MADCAD online library is a low cost way of accessing many of the standards referenced in the codes. That is the reason that NMCOA has worked with MADCAD to provide a subscription based access to its members since 2016. If your jurisdiction is not currently subscribed to MADCAD and you would like further information, please email your request to nmcoa75@gmail.com .  NMCOA will be happy to get your jurisdiction enrolled into the subscription program. 

The Board looks forward to your participation in the virtual webinars, with an eventual return to in person meetings. Feel free to contact the NMCOA Board of Directors with any questions, comments or concerns.
