Benefits of Membership

The Johnston County Building Industry Association (JCBIA) is a construction trade association that has been anchored in Smithfield since 1978. The association is Johnston County’s foundation for construction needs, and most importantly a resource for business growth, industry news, money saving discounts, and so much more for its members!


3 in 1 Membership! When you join the JCBIA you automatically become a member of all three levels of the NAHB federation: Johnston County Building Industry Association (local), the North Carolina Home Builders Association (state) and the National Association of Home Builders (national).  That’s three memberships for the price of one!


What is in it for me?


Every day the JCBIA, NCHBA and NAHB fight to defeat excessive regulations that drive up the cost of housing. Through these relationships, your voice will be heard. If you are a builder or supplier to the industry, the representation you receive from these three groups is vital to your interests, your needs, and your survival in America’s largest growing industry.


The following are other benefits of the JCBIA membership:


Educational Programs—The JCBIA holds seminars quarterly at our General Membership meetings. Speakers recently discussed industry-related topics such as the 540 completion, future business/retail coming to our area, state and county regulations, contract law, material pricing and more. In addition, JCBIA holds an annual Economic Forum and provides continuing education classes for builders who need their 8 hours of CE each year to meet the requirements of the NC Licensing Board for General Contractors.


Discounts—JCBIA members are eligible for rebates through two programs: the NCHBA Member Rebate Program and the National Association of Home Builders Member Advantage Program.

The NCHBA Member Rebate Program offers money back on products you already use. No cost to join and the average rebate in 2022 was over $1500! Click NCHBA Member Rebate for more information.


The NAHB Member Advantage Program offers money-saving discounts that benefit you, your business, and your family. Access the savings offered by top companies such as GM, Nissan, Geico, Houzz Pro, Amazon Business, and more! Click NAHB Member Advantage for more information.


InsuranceBuilders Mutual Insurance Company is endorsed by the NCHBA to provide all commercial lines of insurance coverage to its members. Their WorkSafe Workers’ Comp is known as the industry standard and offers features such as job site evaluations to help prevent workplace accidents and injuries. BMIC experts help you create the safest working environment possible and offer ongoing education and training. Partnered with WorkSafe, their Builders Best policies round out all the coverage those in the residential building industry need. From general liability to inland marine and builders’ risk, Builders Best has you covered. Contact your agent for more information.


Committees and Events—Be a part of our team by joining one or more of our outstanding Committees! Your participation is crucial to our collective success. Together we can make a meaningful contribution to both our association and the surrounding community!


Whether you are interested in legislative issues, education, events, or community outreach, you will be joining others having similar interests. Together, working on association committees, members utilize the collective impact and strength of an organized group. Whether you’re a builder or associate, you will find the contacts you make to be invaluable to your business. Membership and committee work gives you the framework to become effectively involved in your industry on both a local, state, and national level.
