The Southeast Michigan Building Officials & Inspectors Association provides high quality continuing education training for the re-registration of building officials, building inspectors, and plan examiners as required under Michigan Public Act 407 of 2016.

Our History

The organization was established in 1963 to administer building codes and to obtain technical information from authoritative sources on matters concerning the construction industry. This information is shared with the organization's membership to promote fellowship and unity of building officials and inspectors and to obtain broader viewpoints and understanding of our mutual problems by promoting investigation and discussion to obtain appropriate solutions to construction-related issues.

As time went on and communities began to grow and increase their populations, architects and contractors began to show an interest in the organization and have since become a permanent fixture within the membership.

In 1975 the organization became the 14th Chapter of the Building Officials and Code Administrators International. Currently the organization is a member of the International Code Council (ICC).  With the passage of Public Act 54 in 1986 the Association shifted gears to provide the required continuing education to its members.

In 2001, the organization was incorporated as a Michigan corporation known as SEMBOIA, Inc. and received tax exempt status as a 501(a) non-profit from the IRS.

The SEMBOIA organization has continued to grow throughout the years and, for over five decades since its inception, has operated exclusively to improve business conditions among code officials and provide continuing education for re-registration of southeastern Michigan building officials, inspectors, and plan reviewers in accordance with Public Act 407 and Public Act 230, as amended.
