NCMHA Membership Benefits
The following are just a handful of the advantages you gain by being a member of NCMHA.
Each summer, NCMHA members gather at a luxurious location to attend the NCMHA Annual Meeting. The Meeting serves as a family-friendly forum for members to network with other business associates, as well as allowing members to meet and hear national and local industry leaders. The Annual Meeting also serves as NCMHA's venue where members elect their division representatives.
Educational and Training Programs
NCMHA not only provides education through its own resources, but also works with other professional organizations including planners, brokers and housing advocates to provide current, up-to-date information on issues affecting the industry.
Professional Development & Education
NCMHA periodically develops programs and provides information to help our members grow in their profession.
NCMHA takes an active role in both state and local government activities by developing relationships with US Congress, State representatives, County Commissioners, City Council members, Planning Commissioners as well as representatives in over 19 regulatory agencies. NCMHA also actively lobbies to have legislation that will positively affect the industry passed both statewide as well as nationally.
NCMHA strives to build individual relationships between its members and local officials by providing the necessary resources to make members become proactive in governmental matters.
This annual publication is provided for NCMHA members' exclusive use. The directory provides a wealth of information including contact information, organized by city as well as an alphabetical listing by type of service that the members provide to the industry. The directory also includes a copy of the association's Bylaws as well as local and state Government contact information.
Association gatherings are held at the state level throughout the year. Committee meetings are also held on this day. NCMHA has several active committees for every member to get involved in. Annual Meeting, Bylaws, Regulatory Affairs and MaHPAC all meet on a regular basis and have subcommittees, which focus on specific issues.
NCMHA's newsmagazine, North Carolina Manufactured & Modular Housing News, is mailed to the entire membership. Articles address industry-relevant topics as diverse as legislative issues, educational opportunities, marketing strategies, economic perspectives, NCMHA committee updates, and more. The Association's Executive Director and President are regular contributors, and members are welcome to submit informational articles for publication. The magazine also includes a calendar of events and photo recap of NCMHA events. Advertising opportunities are available.
The NCMHA website is the most direct link to all association activities. At any time, the public can access the consumer information section on the many reasons to own a factory-built home.
Public Relations Program
NCMHA continually strives to portray our industry in a positive manner. Both the NCMHA staff and Regulatory Affairs Committee work to update the local media and public officials on activities and developments in the manufactured and modular housing industry. These efforts also serve to improve public opinion of the industry, which continues to grow, change and react to political and economic conditions across the state. NCMHA representatives are available to convey the Association's views on current issues, whether to various media or other interested groups.
NCMHA membership gives you access to many quality resources that will help you in your business. Some examples include a sample lease written in both English and Spanish; Model Arbitration Agreement; Model Sales contract as well as other distinctive marketing and collateral printed materials and videos.
