    NCBI Sends out Press Releases Identifying Latest Graduates 

    Raleigh, N.C.Bruce Rogers of Crystal Coast Construction of Emerald Isle in Emerald Isle, NC, has completed the course work necessary to meet the requirements for the Accredited Builder (AB) and Mark Merrell of COD Home Services in Emerald Isle, NC, has completed the course work necessary to meet the requirements for the Accredited Builder (AB) and Accredited Remodeler (AR) designations. 

    Both are members of the Carteret County Home Builders Association.

    Accredited Builder graduates complete an intensive series of 72 hours of course work, during which they learn about the newest trends and technology in the building industry.  Accredited Remodeler graduates also complete 72 hours of coursework, with specific credit hours focused on remodeling course work. 

    In addition, NCBI participants have the opportunity to collaborate with fellow builders on solutions to many everyday problems encountered in the industry.  To keep their designation current, graduates must complete an additional eight hours each year.   

    The North Carolina Builder Institute, the educational arm of the North Carolina Home Builders Association, administers the continuing education program.  An Accredited Builder designation is recognized statewide and identifies top professionals in the building industry.

    The North Carolina Home Builders Association is a state trade association representing 60 local associations and more than 13,000 member firms involved in the residential construction industry.  A not-for-profit organization, the NCHBA provides its members with networking and educational opportunities and represents them in matters of government relations and advocacy.

    Carteret County Home Builders Association: 

    Why We Fight

    by Joe Tarascio

    Creative Carpentry & Woodworking

    CCHBA Past President

    Although our efforts in the political arena are sometimes perceived as “special interest” activities, quite a bit of regulation revolves around the special interests of other groups.

    Quite often, regulation exceeds what is truly necessary or cost effective in providing safe or affordable housing for our citizens. Our Association is a key participant in keeping balance in regulatory processes.

    The intense lobbying of the insurance industry and product manufacturers often play a large part in what becomes our building codes. Unfortunately, public perception is that these rules protect them, until they attempt to build a home. The continuing increase in the cost of housing is not based solely on inflation but often reflects added requirements that have disproportionate effectiveness when measured against their cost.

    The real misconception is that the challenges made to these codes by our industry have only to do with our bottom line. Of course, this ignores that the cost of regulation is ultimately passed on to the consumer. In many instances, our Association is what maintains the balance between effective regulation in building and expensive requirements with small returns to our citizens and our environment. 

    Anyone who thinks that government & regulators are the only solution to housing issues need only to look around to see the value our HBAs have in this process.  

    WE WILL BE ATTENDING THE CHAMBER'S BUSINESS EXPO AND WE WOULD LIKE TO SHOWCASE OUR MEMBERS WITH A CONSUMER HANDOUT WITH SERVICE ARTICLES (Similar to the above from Patrick)

    WHILE THE ATTACHED IS NOT A TEMPLATE, IT SHOULD HELP YOU TO CREATE AN ARTICLE ON A SUBJECT IN WHICH YOU ARE AN EXPERT. 

    WE ALSO WELCOME ANY PROMOTIONAL ITEMS YOU WOULD LIKE US TO HAVE AT OUR BOOTH. CALL THE OFFICE AND WE WILL ARRANGE COLLECTION OF YOUR ITEMS.

    by Patrick Mann, AMB  CGP  CAPS Patrick Mann, 3rd from Left

    Action Services / CCHBA Director

    Members of our local HBA represent the best of related trades of the local home building industry.  We divide ourselves into two levels of membership. Builders and re-modelers are “Builder Members”, and our important partners in industry are “Associate Members.” 

    Associates are Realtors, Bankers, Insurance agents, Designers, Engineers, Inspectors, Landscapers, Masons, Framers, Pest Control, Insulation, Plumbers, Electricians, Drywall installers, Trim carpenters, Painters, Crane operators, Building supply partners, Flooring companies, Cabinet makers, Window treatment, Water treatment, Well drillers, and many more tradesmen who help in furnishing and improving housing in Carteret County.

    You can see from this list that our industry is diverse.  Our membership includes involvement in The North Carolina Home Builders, and National Home Builders Associations.  We strive to continually educate and improve the professionalism of our members.  Many of our members have professional designations reflecting continual education, such as Accredited Master Builder, Certified Green Professional, Certified Aging in Place Specialist, Accredited Builder, and others. We protect our industry by working with the North Carolina Code Council and Department of Insurance through proactive involvement in Codes and Regulations.  Through these efforts we insure the building of safe, sound, affordable homes, additions, and renovations.

    We are also volunteering to make our presence felt in the community. We have built homes for Habitat for Humanity, dugouts at local ballfields, shelters at our schools and parks. Our members were instrumental in building Shevans park’s playground and fencing.  We built the band reviewing stand at East Carteret High School.  We have volunteered to work with FEMA to inspect homes damaged by floods in Eastern North Carolina.

    HOW Companies Payments to be Disbursed

    reprinted from NAHBNow

    Filed in Construction IndustryLegal on March 10, 2016 • 0 Comments

    Twenty-two years after it went into receivership, builders who made capital contributions to the HOW companies may be eligible to get some of their money back.

    Home Ownership Warranty Insurance Company (HOWIC) was a risk-retention group under the Home Warranty Corporation (HWC). As the parent company, HWC owned all the shares of stock in its operating subsidiaries: HOWIC and the Home Owners Warranty Corporation (HOW), which managed the insurance operations. The three companies are collectively referred to as the HOW Companies.

    In 1994, the HOW Companies were placed into receivership. The receiver has now moved forward with plans to liquidate the company and is preparing to distribute payments to former HOW builders with previously approved claims for capital contributions (in legal terms known as eligible Builders).

    As part of the liquidation process, the receiver set a deadline of Jan. 12, 2009 by which all claims against the HOW Companies needed to be filed. Any eligible builder seeking return of capital contributions made to the HOW Companies was required to file a claim by that deadline, and many NAHB members did so.

    After the receiver returns capital contributions to eligible builders, the receiver, as a final step, will distribute residual assets to builders who were insured under unexpired HOWIC insurance policies as of Oct. 14, 1994 (in legal terms known as builder distributees). However, builder distributees do not need to submit claims for their share of the residual assets of the companies.

    As a service to the NAHB membership, NAHB staff is looking at ways to ensure that the receiver has the up-to-date contact information for all eligible builders and builder distributees, and has posted the relevant contact information on file with receivership staff.

    If you are an eligible builder or builder distributee, please read the directions and additional information on the NAHB Web page.

    For a list of local builders and local builder distributees, Members can sign in to CCHBA Member Documents.

    The National Association of Home Builders has lots of slogans and taglines but one of the oldest and in my opinion, the best, is "Do Business with a Member".

    It's simple, to the point and it makes a whole lot of sense.

    After all, you joined the Home Builders Association for a reason. You wanted to align yourself with people who cared about your industry, your business, your livelihood - you wanted to be with people who would help your business to grow and profit. 

    Doesn't it make sense that those same people would be great people to work with? Doesn't it make sense that those same people whom you work with, would make great members?

    So, we are asking our Builders to take some time to fill out the Builder Scorecard. It could earn you the Gold Star Builder designation, save you money on our events, possibly earn you free dues and allow your sub-contractors to grow their own businesses.

    And for our Associates*, we are offering you the opportunity to earn "Three for Free" also - bring in 3 new Builder/Associate members in the calendar year and have your own dues paid for the year. 

    We are making this super easy for everyone this year. Provide the office with the names and addresses of potential new members and we'll send out an invitation in your name.



    *BMIC Insurance agents are not eligible for this promotion, sorry.

    During the North Carolina Home Builders Association (NCHBA) meetings in Pinehurst, the NCHBA Board of Directors voted unanimously to support the Connect NC Bond Referendum.   The bond provides $2 billion of target, long-term investments in 76 counties.  Currently, interest rates are historically low, and the Connect NC bonds will not jeopardize North Carolina's strong credit ratings.  For more information, click http://connect.nc.gov/.

    NCHBA encourages your support for this important bond referendum by voting "Yes" when you vote in the March 15 primary.

    A quick update on what's happening at the CCHBA office and in the home building industry.

     

     

     

    CCHBA Punch List

     

     

    Date: March 10, 2016

     

    A Letter from the President:

    Members and Associates,

    January has streaked by in a flash and now we are already through February.

    If you did not attend the General Membership Meeting for February, you missed a very informative presentation by our own Immediate Past President, Bruce Rogers.

    He, as well as Past President Patrick Mann, gleaned some very important information at the NCHBA quarterly meeting recently held in Pinehurst. Information that is critical for contractors and sub-contractors about the introduction of rule changes regarding sales tax liabilities on labor. Not learning the criteria for the handling of these new rules could be very costly.

    Please be sure to visit our web site to learn more, and be sure you get the correct interpretation of the information. That information is available at the NC Dept. of Revenue web site. Do not ignore this as you could incur a very large sales tax liability on labor from your construction projects. You can be exempted on projects started prior to March 1st by having subs sign a particular document – Form E-589-J.

    There is yet another reason to feel like you missed something by not attending the February meeting. We had another presenter, Bob Pyer, from the NC Works Career Center – Division of Workforce Solutions. Mr. Pyer had an informative and valuable presentation for us all.

    He detailed a free-to-all service from the state of NC. This new and very easy to use service allows you to list job openings using a selective and comprehensive program. Finding qualified personnel has never been easier and you have the ability to list ALL of the requirements you have for a position. Please visit the website at ncworks.gov or call Mr. Pyer at 252-726-7151. You can also contact Mr. Pyer directly for assistance or questions at bob.pyer@nccommerce.com. You will not be disappointed.

    Teri, our EO, is dedicated to finding informative and useful presenters for our GM meetings. Take the time to attend and we are sure you will not be disappointed. I personally have found these presentations great, and I say that as a member, not because of my position.

    I wish to express again the desire to make the HBA a force in Carteret County. This effort requires your support. We all have a large workforce available in this county and many hands make little work. I know there are needs in the community not being met by volunteers. I recently spoke with Habitat for one. They would love to have some participation by our people.

    We have a great guest planned for March. Plan on being there. Our meetings are short and to the point.

    Sincerely,

    R A (Bob) Kulin

    Editor's Note: President Kulin attended the first of 3 Public Hearings on Storm Water Rules Changes in New Bern on Monday, March 7. Ask him to tell you about it! Also, check out the video of NCHBA Lobbyist, Steven Webb, during the public comments section of the meeting.
