NCLBGC Search 

The NC Licensing Board for General Contractors released this app in August 2018 and it is a really simple and great tool for verifying a contractor's credentials. 

Use it to show that potential client that your information is up-to-date or to check that flyer you got in the mail before you call. 

NAHB Advocacy

This app is loaded with information from National Association of Home Builders. You can get updates on the latest Building News, look at what our Government Affairs Department considers the top issues, check on ICC Codes and Standards, find contact information for NAHB Staff and even send a note to your legislators in Washington, DC, through BuilderLink.

Past Presidents Dinner

Phil Warrick, NCHBA President, installed Carteret County HBA's officers and board at the Past Presidents Dinner on January 9, 2019, at Off The Hook in Morehead City. He spoke on advocacy at the state and national level and asked for input on possible legislation that would require General Contractors to acquire continuing education credits in order to maintain their license. If you have any thoughts on this subject, please email your remarks to the office at

The group enjoyed a wonderful buffet dinner of beef filets and fried shrimp and while attendance at the event was light, there were several Past Presidents among the attendees.

Brett Harstine of BTH Builder had his name drawn in the "Must be Present to Win Drawing". He was not present and did not win the $120. There will be $130 up for grabs at the next meeting in March.


The CCHBA Office will be closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Day.


Fishing Raffle is off to a great start

 Ticket sales for the 2019 Fishing Trip opened at the Past Presidents Dinner last week and four tickets have already been sold. 

Past President, Jeff Buchanan, made the first purchase and challenges the membership to sell out the tickets this year. 

As of this afternoon, there are only 46 tickets available at $100 each.

Volunteers needed at CCHBA

We could use some help at the office. Please text Teri at 252-342-8155 or call the office at 252-726-1475 if you would be willing to help with any of the below items.

  • Fishing Raffle Poster Installations - do you have a window or a bulletin board where we can hang our poster? Are you available to spend a little time taking posters to businesses?
  • Event Photographer - are you good with a camera? We'd really, really love to have you at our events to take some photos. Please
  • Public Relations - share our posts, talk about what we do as a trade association, and let us know of opportunities to be seen in the community.
  • Cornhole Committee - are you available to help with our tournament? We need the names of board makers and tournament runners. We need folks to make sales calls and create posts on social media (even if you just share our posts with your friends). And we will definitely need help on the day of the event. While we would love to have you join the committee officially, we'll take all the help we can get!
