The National Association of Home Builders, a federation of more than 235,000 builders, remodelers and industry associates, strives to enhance the climate of the housing and building industry through public policy analysis, industry-wide media relations, and representing the industry’s issues on Capitol Hill. The North Carolina Home Builders Association is a dynamic group of builders and associate member-firms across the state who pool information and efforts to provide the collective clout and muscle the home building industry needs.

Meetings/Networking – The Association hosts many events allowing members to meet and do business with other members in both formal and casual atmospheres, including the Parade of Homes™, HomeEXPO, general membership meetings, educational courses, golf tournaments and council meetings. The “Do Business with a Member” program encourages business relationships between builders and associates for the mutual benefit of both their companies and the industry.

Opportunities abound to sponsor a major event, including the Parade of Homes™ and HomeEXPO or general membership meeting.
