Additionally, the State and National associations also publish monthly and quarterly magazines and newsletters for members. Collectively, we are a resource of information from libraries of builder books to industry-focused webcasts and conferences.

To highlight exceptional work of members throughout the Triangle and state, we host annual award shows such as the MAME and STAR Awards and the Parade of Homes. Each event is surrounded by targeted marketing and advertising efforts to our members, the public and news media.
A Voice At The Table
Our membership represents approximately 90 percent of all housing starts in Wilson County. On the local, state and national levels, our Association along with the North Carolina Home Builders Association (NC HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION OF WILSON) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), is the voice of the residential construction industry. We are very active politically to insure that we have elected leaders who understand housings role in our economy and our role of providing shelter for all families. On the local level, our government affairs staff works closely with the municipal leaders to provide input into decisions that affect our industry.
To support homeownership we first must support our community. We are committed to several charity and community service events that include scholarships for High School Seniors in Wilson County, Wilson Community College Scholarships.
