Thank you to those who have turned in their 2019 membership applications and dues. As of February 4, 2019 we have about 40% of the membership renewed. Please be sure to submit your 2019 membership application with the payment.

 MADCAD renewals are trickling in. As of February 4, 2019, 14 of the 54 jurisdictions that subscribed in 2018 have renewed.  If your jurisdiction is a MADCAD subscriber the NMCOA Board asks for your cooperation in getting the 2019 renewal form and subscription payment in as soon as possible. If your jurisdiction is not a subscriber but you would like more information, please visit the MADCAD page on the NMCOA website. 

 Feel free to contact any of the NMCOA Board members with questions or comments. 



2019 Membership applications have started to trickle in.  Thanks to those who have already submitted.


The 2019 MADCAD renewal information will be sent out by January 18, 2019. 

Cost for NMCOA participation is $350.00 for the 2019 Subscription year. 

More information will be available by our January meeting. 

Due to the number of users and amount of MADCAD use by our subscribers,

changes have been made to allow multiple users as the same time. 

This amounted to a small increase cost to each subscribing jurisdiction.    

If your jurisdiction has participated in MADCAD in the past, your jurisdiction’s participation is needed again.   If your jurisdiction has not participated in this online accessible library of references, consider joining the group.

 NMCOA – Building Safety Month Proclamation 2019 – More to come

More information will be posted posted as it becomes available


 The Northern Michigan Code Officials Association Board of Directors has signed a Proclamation recognizing the month of May 2018 as Building Safety Month.


Building Safety Month is celebrated nationwide by many local code enforcement jurisdictions, State and local government officials, code official organizations and more.  The purpose of this is to raise awareness of the importance of building codes and their enforcement to provide safe and structurally sound buildings and structures for our communities to live in, work in and play in.  Additionally, Building Safety Month helps raise awareness of the important role of code officials and inspectors  within our communities.   We, as code officials and inspectors, are the “unknown guardians of public safety”.


NMCOA has made their proclamation to recognize the NMCOA membership for their contributions


to the citizens of their communities.
