Your Voice Matters

There are many timely local, state and national policy issues that directly impact our member companies and professionals.  These include federal tax overhauls, state mandated building and energy codes, and local workforce and economic development issues.  These issues aren’t just impacting builders and contractors, they affect our industry professionals working in the field and those that work with us.  Product manufacturers, service providers, program administrators, local utilities and other companies are also affected by industry policies and regulations.

NCBPA is the most active organization in the state to voice concerns and take proactive action in support of energy efficient, green and high performance construction – focusing on impacts to the companies and professionals in our industry.  Our association takes a proactive stance on many of these issues, proposing legislative and regulatory changes that improve our business climate and level the playing field for our industry.  However, the association is only as strong as its members: the more members who participate, the more likely it is that our voices will be heard.

The most important ingredient of a successful association is an active membership that is willing to have its voice heard by the public and by our elected officials. The accomplishments that can be realized through strong, grassroots efforts of our members are limitless.  NCBPA is the industry organizer of these efforts, but we need your voice to make a real impact.
