This year at BCMC, the Structural Building Components Association (SBCA) will make an extra focus on recognizing supplier members who support the component manufacturing industry.

Become an SBCA Member by September 15 to make sure you don’t miss out on the extra recognition supplier members will receive:

  1. Supplier member names will be highlighted on the floor plan attendees pick up at registration.
  2. Members will be recognized in the inaugural BCMC mobile app, which will help attendees plan their participation in the show.
  3. A prominent sign will list supplier members, thanking these companies for their support of the industry.
  4. Plus, if you’re already registered as an exhibitor, your booth fees will be adjusted to the lower member pricing.

The National Framers Council (NFC) needs you too! Join NFC by September 15 and make the NFC membership list, showing your support for this important endeavor on behalf of our industry.

There is so much more involved in becoming a part of the trade association that supports you and your customers. Your low yearly dues cost:

  • Helps to strengthen the industry by increasing credibility and critical mass. We need YOU accomplish this.

  • Supports comprehensive code compliance support and tools for members.
  • Showcases SBCA/NFC membership on the BCMC website and on the list at BCMC distributed to all attendees.
