Our Members Drive Us!

Do you have some ideas for education classes or events?   Are you interested in the latest rules and regulations for our industry?  Love getting to know others at a mixer or honoring members for their achievements?  Then join a committee that interests you.

Committees are a simple way to volunteer your time, make a difference in the association, and get to know other members.  Look over the committees and decide which committee would be best suited to your time and talents.  

We rely on member volunteers to lead our different events, functions, and goals.  Being on a committee allows you to give back to your association and get to know each other better, all while spreading awareness for your own business!  Members do business with members!  We strongly encourage you to get involved in a committee to make the most of your NCBIA membership.

Watch out for our What’s Happening Wednesday eNews distributed the second Wednesday of each month for upcoming scheduled meetings, and events or email for more information.
