As a member of the HBAF, you will have access to hundreds of other member companies. We encourage and promote members doing business with other members by holding meetings and events throughout the year that foster these relationships. Visit the Calendar of Events (insert link) to see all the upcoming events, activities, and committees meetings.
In addition to the ongoing Member Mixers, each major event of the HBAF has a planning committee: Spring & Fall Golf Tournaments, Casino Night, Carolina Home Show and Idea House. Visit the Get Involved (link) page for more details.
The HBAF also has standing committees related to the important work of the Association and its members. They include the list that follows.
Membership Committee – Members are the heart of our association and in order to reach out to all the companies in Fayetteville that would benefit from an HBAF membership, the HBAF has a group of volunteers that focus on just that. For those that are interested in networking, this is the committee for you! That cold call becomes much warmer when you’re able to speak peer-to-peer about the Home Builders Association of Fayetteville.
Government Affairs – Each month the Government Affairs Committee meets on topics important to our members. Typical meetings may include guest speakers, training information on building codes,discussion of governmental challenges members are facing and during the election season this committee discuss BuildPac distribution to candidates seeking election.
Members of the HBAF have the buying power that comes from Association leverage and power in numbers.
Insurance – Nobody knows the builder like Builders Mutual
We know that working efficiently means working more productively – and more profitably. Part of that efficiency is keeping all your “tools” in one box. The same goes for your insurance. Why piece together construction coverage from other carriers when Builders Mutual already has it all? From commercial to residential insurance, from workers’ compensation to general liability, it’s all here. Headquartered in North Carolina since 1984 and available throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, Builders Mutual sets the standard for construction insurance.

Joining the Home Builders Association of Fayetteville includes many benefits. One benefit you can’t get anywhere else, and no other trade association is going to provide to you, is the knowledgeable and constant advocacy for you and your industry. We have over 50 years of experience working with Fayetteville’s elected officials, the HBAF is a well-qualified representative of the local construction industry. Additionally, by joining the HBAF you automatically become a member of the NC Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. At each level, staff are monitoring regulations and working on your behalf (often on issues the average business owner isn’t even aware are developing).
MONEY BACK PROGRAM
Who wants to leave money on the table? Wouldn’t you rather get it back to spend as you wish?
NCHBA’s Member Rebate Program-No one likes to leave money on the table. So, what would you think if you could get a rebate for your loyalty to many of the nation’s leading housing industry product suppliers? Well, now you can! NCHBA’s Member Rebate Program increases your bottom line. For the minimal effort of informing us about the home construction products you use and when you close on a home or project, you’ll be putting money back in your pocket. Both Builder and Remodeler companies, no matter how large or small, qualify for the program, and you are not required to use products from every Manufacturer. Please note: Program is only available to current NCHBA Members.
Benefit of participating
The biggest perk? Money. And all for just remaining loyal to many of the country’s leading Manufacturers you already use in all of your homes. Rebate checks are mailed quarterly.
No change needed in your business practices
Besides the money, the next-best part of the program is that it doesn’t change the way you do business. You are not required to submit receipts and you do not have to change how you purchase products. We do the paperwork, collect the money and mail you the quarterly rebate checks directly! www.hbarebates.com/nchba.html
