 As a reminder, 2017 NMCOA Membership renewals are due.  We have had response from about 75% of the membership so far.  For those who have not submitted their 2017 dues and renewal form, please do so.


Those jurisdictions participating in MADCAD through NMCOA have received emails regarding renewal of the MADCAD subscription for 2017.  It is very important that the jurisdictions involved respond promptly as the current subscription expires March 6, 2017.  In order for NMCOA to keep this subscription we need the participation of all jurisdictions that participated last year, as the total NMCOA cost of that subscription is spread out among all participants.  We still need to hear from a few to meet our minimum quota for the funds necessary for renewal.  The MADCAD program provides quick and easy access to most of the REQUIRED referenced standards found in the codes.  If your jurisdiction did not participate in our subscription last year, but would like to now, please contact Martin Van Berlo, NMCOA Education Chairman at 231-439-8988 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

MADCAD Renewal forms have been sent out to those jurisdictions that participated last year.  If your jurisdiction wishes to participate and needs information, please contact Martin Van Berlo, NMCOA Education Chairman for more information or visit the MADCAD page by clicking the link below.
