The Board is currently trying to determine a direction for the very near future and then beyond that. We are somewhat limited by the following, including the use of the facility as the building owner controls the use of the facility; the need for presenters who can present remotely if we cannot meet in person, and the ability for the membership to participate remotely if we cannot meet in person. There is a lot to figure out before we can provide a direction. We are doing the best we can and will provide the membership with some direction soon. Your patience is appreciated.

The Board wishes all a safe and healthy summer and hope to return to our normal meeting schedule in the fall. As always, feel free to contact the board with any questions, comments or concerns. 


As NMCOA transitions email addresses to the NMCOA Gmail account, some of you may be receiving this email message twice, one from, and another from Please be patient as we continue this transition process over the next couple months. Once completed, all nmcoa email correspondence will be from

Thanks to those who have submitted their 2020 NMCOA Dues and Membership forms. To date, I have received 85% of those who were members in 2019. For those who have not submitted, please do so as soon as possible. At the end of March, those not paid will be removed from the membership list and sign in sheets. 

The MADCAD subscription is being renewed for 2020. To date, NMCOA had 48 jurisdictions complete the 2020 MADCAD renewal form and payment. NMCOA has had 2 2019 subscribers drop out of the 2020 MADCAD subscription and 2 previous subscribers who NMCOA has not heard from. This shortage has affected the total funds collected this year to pay the subscription for 2020. Fortunately NMCOA has a small reserve of funds from the past couple years where expense was slightly less than the subscription fees received. As such, NMCOA is covering the shortfall for 2020 using those reserve funds. If your jurisdiction is interested in joining the NMCOA – MADCAD subscription, check the NMCOA website for more details, or contact Martie Van Berlo, NMCOA Education Chairman, for more details.  

The Board looks forward to seeing you at our next meeting. As always, comments, questions and concerns can all be directed to any of the NMCOA Board members. 

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


recognizing the month of May 2020 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 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.
