Who are we?
Established in 1965, the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association
(WCFHBA) is a not-for-profit trade association affiliated with the North Carolina Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. As the second-largest HBA in North Carolina, the WCFHBA represents more than 1200+ members throughout the Cape Fear region. As a member of this association, you are viewed as our extended family. A family of suppliers, finance, tradesmen, builders, real estate professionals, and many others who work together to keep our region strong. Nearly every home built in the Wilmington region is built or touched in some manner by a member of this association.
Beyond networking, what other types of benefits do I receive by being a member?
As a member, your benefits are vast and tangible. They range from business-building resources to money-saving discounts to an effective grassroots network that helps shape the views of our elected officials and lawmakers. Our 3-in-1 membership provides every member a strong foundation to be noticed, connected, and heard across many different spectrums. We position ourselves to be included in the decision-making process on legislation, regulation, and other issues that affect your bottom line.
Whether it be related to a natural disaster, pandemic, or daily operations, the HBA stays in constant contact with the regulatory agencies, policymakers, elected officials, and State & National HBA leadership to keep you up-to-date.
Members have access to our exclusive rebate programs and can save hundreds to thousands of dollars on anything from services, to truck rebates to discounts on affordable workers compensation insurance through our partner Builders Mutual.
How does my company get in front of consumers and other members?
We host over fifteen different events throughout the year with our largest event being our Annual Parade of Homes™. The Parade showcases the craftsmanship, diversity, and quality of the region’s premier homes. Consumers have the opportunity to explore homes; get to know builders, view home descriptions; view photos and floor plans; take 3D virtual tours, and see the latest in construction, designs, and furnishings.
We work to provide connections for our members and each year we publish the Cape Fear Buyers Guide. This guide displays our members and their primary business category to our entire membership and over 18,000 copies are distributed in the Cape Fear Region.
How does being a member further my education and the future of the Home Builders Association?
As our industry has grown and evolved, it is no secret that education and professional development are key components to our members’ success. Staying abreast of the latest code changes, supplier changes, and technological advancements in construction is paramount. The Association serves as a key Education Provider and can deliver all the required courses needed to fulfill the 8 hours of Continuing Education that General Contractors are now required to take.
The future of our industry is rooted in cultivating new leadership through our workforce development initiatives. The Paul Gregory Foundation was created many years ago to serve as the philanthropic arm of the Wilmington-Cape Fear Home Builders Association to help advance our industry by exposing young adults to the construction industry, help local charities, provide scholarships to deserving students, and participate in community outreach programs. The HBA sees the direct link of investing in our future and to date has awarded well over $40,000 in Scholarship Funding to deserving students/applicants that have enrolled in the construction/vocational programs in the Wilmington Region.
