Membership Application Process

Dues remittance represents annual membership investment in the Greensboro Builders Association. With payment, members acknowledge that a portion of their dues investment covers membership in the North Carolina Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders. Members agree to abide by the Constitution, Bylaws and Code of Ethics of all three organizations.
Dues payments to GBA are not deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
