I

t’s hard to believe this year is half over. We are having a good year with respect to many of our GBA activities. We have tried to spice up some of the traditional events and it seems to have been successful. I’d like to take a minute to look ahead to the rest of the year. Membership growth is a basic goal for us this year. While we are not losing members, we are only holding steady. I would ask everyone that reads this to talk to two people that you know that could be potential members and ask them to join. Not sure if they are a member, check our website or call the GBA office. If asking potential members to join is not in your comfort zone, simply share the company and contact information…and we will be happy to follow up on your behalf.

Purchasing and insurance rebates, along with member discounts are among the actual cash incentives that come with membership investment. These incentives can often offset your annual membership fee. Savings generated from the work our Association does within the Legislature can add up to hundreds of dollars. Our latest success in the General Assembly has allowed our industry to be mostly exempt from the sales tax on labor issue. This is significant for builders, remodelers, trade contractors and suppliers who offer turn-key services. More information will follow at a later time as it is still pending the Governor’s signature…but we have provided a basis overview of the changes in the bill on the next page.

Another area of focus this year has been to continue to seek opportunities to co-sponsor events with other associations. We have many Builders and Associates that work in areas served by other HBAs. For the past eight years, we have partnered with the Winston-Salem HBA to offer our Parade of Homes the same weekends and co-market to the community. Recently we held a successful Triad HBAs After Hours at Builders FirstSource…and are currently planning a regional event to support NC Build Pac. On August 25, we will have a Wine and Beer Tasting event at Amanzi Marble & Granite’s new showroom in Kernersville. Two wineries and four breweries have already signed on to what will be a fun and enjoyable evening. Last year, more than 100 attended and we hope to double that number this year!

Remodelers Council Jamie Bowlin, JLB Remodeling, Inc.

Planning is underway for our annual community service project. This fall, we will be constructing a new house for Community Housing Solutions between September - November. There will be opportunities for all members to get involved. Please let us know if you are interested in participating.

In other news, we are meeting with the Community Foundation and GTCC discussing Workforce Development initiatives and opportunities. There are several groups with independent efforts working toward this goal. We are trying to combine these initiatives into a single, focused effort. More details as this progresses. There are many things coming up this summer and early fall that might interest or be of benefit to you. I encourage you to mark your calendars with dates of upcoming events and plan to attend as many as you can. Utilize the GBA website for additional details and to make your reservations.

4 GREENSBORO BUILDERS ASSOCIATION - BUILDER UPDATE

88186.36.3.004.NewMembers.indd 1

7/8/16 6:39 PM


NCHBA Legislative Update It was another successful session for the NCHBA - one that will provide millions of dollars in tax savings and ease several regulatory burdens for home builders across the state. No single piece of legislation will have a bigger impact on our members than HB 1030 (2016 Appropriations Act), which is currently awaiting the Governor’s signature. The finance portion of this legislation contains a number of important tax law changes and, of particular importance to us, are those dealing with modifications to the taxation of repair, maintenance and installation (RMI) services which became effective on March 1 of this year. The March tax changes created issues for builders who utilize the services of trade contractors who met the definition of “retailer” under that law…along with Associate members who offer turnkey services to builders in both new construction and remodeling activities. In an effort to find a solution, the goal was to eliminate any sales tax on installation service labor for both new construction and remodeling activity as well as limit the sales tax on labor for remodeling repairs.

After much hard work, NCHBA is pleased to report that the modifications in the budget act accomplish this goal. All activity pursuant to a “real property contract” (which is between a real property contactor and another person to perform construction, reconstruction, or remodeling with respect to a capital improvement) is exempt. Associate members who operate as a “retailer-contractor” are also exempt when the entity acts as a real property contractor. This was a major legislative win for NCHBA and our industry which will literally saves millions of dollars to our members, prospective homeowners and those who are having their existing homes remodeled. This is just another example of your state membership dues and your Build PAC contributions at work.

Build Strong...Build PAC One way to help us continue to support NCHBA…besides making a personal Build PAC contribution…is to purchase tickets to attend our regional Build PAC Wine & Beer Tasting event to be held on Thursday, August 25 in conjunction with the Home Builders Association of Winston-Salem. It’s going to be a FUN evening of networking…great food…beer & wine tasting from area craft beer breweries and vineyards. RSVP Today!
