Special Events

SBCA Pre-show Seminar: Covering Your Costs for Maximum Profitability
Tuesday, Oct. 7 • 11 am-12:30 pm
Speakers: Rick Parrino (Plum Building Systems) and Keith Hershey (SBCA)

It’s not just plates, lumber and labor! When you build up costing for a job, how do you cover all of your expenses? Are you covering the costs of your miscellaneous materials? How do you handle it when something changes and you need to make adjustments? In this interactive CM-only workshop, the group will work backwards from a mock P&L and other budgeting spreadsheets to learn strategies to account for all labor categories and cost centers, as well as improve your costing process to surpass industry averages.

Cost: $50 SBCA Member, $100 Non-Member (working lunch included with registration)

BCMC Build LogoBCMC Build Construction
Sat.-Mon., Oct. 4-6 • 6:30 am - 6 pm

BCMC Build has become a fitting way to kick off a week centered on building community and making connections. This charitable project relies on the generosity and collaboration of component manufacturers, suppliers, framers and builders to fully frame and sheath a home for a deserving family in only three days. BCMC Build will partner with Operation FINALLY HOME again this year to construct a mortgage-free home for a wounded veteran in the city where the build was born four years ago. If you haven’t participated in BCMC Build in the past, this is a great year to start! Consider donating your time, materials or financial resources. 

Welcome Celebration: 
SBCA Annual Meeting & BCMC Build Ceremony
Wednesday, Oct. 8 • 5:30 pm (with reception to follow)

Celebrate the official start of BCMC by gathering with fellow members to hear the latest from the Structural Building Components Association, applaud the industry’s award winners and recognize the completion of the BCMC Build. Attendees will meet the recipient of the 2014 BCMC Build house and watch a video of project highlights. Plus, last year’s recipient, Cody Nusbaum, will be in Charlotte to share how his new home has transformed his life. Then kick back, grab a bite to eat and catch up with friends old and new during the welcome reception.
