 February 2020 Meeting Update 

The next NMCOA meeting is February 21, 2020, beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the Headwaters Meeting Room of Jay’s Sporting Goods in Gaylord. The programs to be presented are not as shown on the 2020 Proposed Education Agenda. Due to scheduling issues with those instructors, the following programs will be presented:  

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM

Instructor for both is Ken LaBelle

 As a reminder, the 2020 Dues/Membership form and 2020 Proposed Education Agenda can be found at the NMCOA website. A completed form is required. Payments received without completed forms will be considered nothing more than a donation from you and/or your jurisdiction to NMCOA, and your member information for 2020 will not be updated.

 I have reached out to MADCAD for price quotes for the online referenced standards library for 2020. The renewal form has been posted and can be found under the MADCAD link at the top of this page. Renewal information has been sent out to the 2019 participating jurisdictions. As in the past, the subscription form posted on the NMCOA website is an interactive pdf form. This means that you can enter all of the requested information on the form on your computer prior to printing. Forms completed this way are generally very clear and legible, which helps in processing the information into the NMCOA records. If you choose to hand write the information on the form, please write clearly and legibly. Thank you.   If your jurisdiction has not participated in the NMCOA MADCAD subscription in the past, we welcome you to consider joining the NMCOA user group. Please email for more information.

  As in years past, post cards serving as reminders for 2020 Membership Information on the website were distributed to those present at the December 2019 meeting. For those not attending, your post card has been sent by mail. The membership application for 2020 is posted to the website under the membership tab. Those interested in attending but are not NMCOA members should click on the “membership” tab above. 


 The Northern Michigan Code Officials Association Board of Directors has signed a Proclamation 

recognizing the month of May 2019 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”.  Below is the 2019 NMCOA Proclamation. Also provided is a sample proclamation that can be used by your jurisdiction. The Sample Document is provided as a Word Document that can be edited and used as you wish. Suggest that your jurisdiction approve a proclamation to recognize the importance of the code official and the work they do to.

 NMCOA has made their proclamation to recognize the NMCOA membership for their contributions to the citizens of their communities.


NMCOA is currently beginning to phase in a new email address. The new NMCOA email address is  Feel free to send future correspondence to this address. In the past, we have used Martie’s work email as a communication tool for NMCOA correspondence. We wish to end the use of that email for NMCOA correspondence in the not too distant future. Your assistance in that effort is appreciated.
