The 2018 International Builders Show was again a memorable event for NCHBA members. The three-day show was held in January in Orlando, Florida.

As always, NCHBA welcomed our members to an exclusive reception, which was held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel. This year a crowd of 300-plus guests attended the invite-only reception. NCHBA wishes to thank the generous sponsors of our 2018 reception, including Builders Mutual Insurance and Lowe’s ProServices for being Gold Sponsors of the event; Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, Centricity, Dominion NC Power, Electrolux, 84 Lumber, Professional Warranty Service Corporation and SunTrust Mortgage for participating as Bronze Sponsors; and The Building Center for being a Patron Sponsor.

North Carolina members celebrated several notable achievements during IBS. Among them, Judy Dinelle of 84 Lumber was installed as the 2018 National Professional Women in Building Chair. Moreover, several members were nominated for the 2017 National Associate Awards, including Brandon Bryant – 2017 BEAM Award Nominee, Melissa Langdale – 2017 Associates One to Watch, and Steve Monroe – 2017 Associate of the Year.
