When you’re walking the show floor at BCMC this week, make sure to stop by SBCA’s booth, staff would like to know what is happening in your business, your life and gain the benefit of your point of view, so we can serve well!

Digital QC

Hopefully you’ve read our latest article on the Digital QC program and all the value it will offer to component manufacturers (CMs).  Want to see how it will work? Staff will be giving live demonstrations!

Strategic Planning

The SBCA board is embarking on the creation of a five-year strategic plan.  Initiated at the August Open Quarterly Meeting (OQM) in Savannah, Georgia, this task will guide, redefine and focus on what our membership believes are the association’s 3, 5 and 10 year priorities. Our goal is to ensure we are providing needed support services that truly help each member be successful in the construction industry today and tomorrow. Do you have an opinion on key industry challenges that we should focus on? Board members will be in the booth throughout the show to discuss your ideas and answer your questions.

Marketing Tools

There are a lot of opportunities for CMs to grow their market share and product offerings in today housing market.  A recent SBC Industry News survey found that 83 percent of CMs plan on expanding in the near term. Are you looking for ways to attract new customers? SBCA has collaborated with its members to develop the Component Marketing Toolbox, and more recently it has partnered with Ask the Builder’s Tim Carter to create a series of videos highlighting the many benefits of framing with structural building components. Stop by the booth to see Tim share his views on why roof trusses, wall panels and floor trusses are the best way to frame!

Member Support

Finally, SBCA staff will be available to discuss any issue you are having and the services SBCA offers to its members to help them on everything from SBCA’s industry best practices to developing an effective and loyal workforce.
