Learn and participate in building performance

Increasing the number of consumers, builders, contractors and other end users that participate in building performance is NCBPA’s top priority.  Our association provides a variety of educational resources for consumers and contractors alike.  Continue reading below and contact us directly with your questions.

Become an industry leader

Membership with NCBPA doesn’t stop at being on the receiving end of emails and communications about what’s going on in the industry.  All member companies and professionals are encouraged to play an active role in guiding the association’s work to improve the industry.

Join the Board of Directors

Several positions are open every 6 months to join the Board of Directors, NCBPA’s volunteer leadership group that sets the tone and strategy for the association’s work.  Click here for more information about becoming a Board Member.

Participate on a Committee

Our Committees offer industry professionals – both experienced and new in their careers – volunteer opportunities to contribute their voice and expertise to key industry growth opportunities and, when needed, in resolving market barriers.  Click here for more information on our Trade Councils.

Become a Policy Advocate

NCBPA staff is a fixture at the North Carolina General Assembly, but legislators and regulators really want and need to hear from local companies about issues that harm their businesses.  Member professionals have many opportunities to contribute their voice and expertise to matters on building and energy code, regulation and much more at the local, state and national levels.  Click here for more information on our policy and legislative work.

Educate Your Peers

Interested in teaching others about the value of building performance?  Have a product or service that you’d like to communicate to industry professionals?  Volunteer your time presenting on technical or business topics via online webinars, in-person workshops and conferences held throughout the year and across the state. Join NCBPA to gain access to our network of more than 10,000 NC-based industry professionals seeking valuable insight and information to make their own businesses better.  Presentation, teaching and consulting opportunities are available through our events and many others that we support.  Contact us to get involved in these and other education opportunities.

Buildings, Building Owners & Operators

Workers, customers, owners and operators are all impacted by the performance of the building they work, eat, worshop or spend time in. Studies show that high performance buildings result in more productive workers, more satisfied customers, greater market value and less maintenance.  All these benefits come with high performance design, construction and maintenance, which also reduces environmental impacts from buildings. NCBPA provides these resources to support commercial and industrial consumer education:
