On October 14, 2018, David Lather, NMCOA Past President (1995 – 1996) and longtime member of NMCOA passed away. 

Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. 

Dave was employed by Grand Traverse County, serving as Building Official for a number of years.

NMCOA – Building Safety Month Proclamation


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.
