Protecting and Promoting the Building Industry in North Idaho
What is an NIBCA membership?
The North Idaho Building Contractors Association strengthens the residential construction sector of the economy by advocating for greater housing affordability, flexibility, overall economic development, job creation, and a growing economy. Outcomes of NIBCA advocacy include expanded opportunities for businesses inside and outside the construction industries to succeed. The NIBCA engages in a wide variety of successful advocacy efforts that directly and indirectly benefit businesses in and out of the building industry.
Young Professional Program
The North Idaho Building Contractors Association (NIBCA) has joined forces with the Idaho Home Builders Association (IHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) to provide an exciting new recruitment program for young professionals in the construction industry. Aspiring leaders in the field can take advantage of a discounted rate from all three organizations, but it comes with a catch: participants have to commit to a five-year membership with NIBCA.

Joining this program is an excellent way to jumpstart your career in the construction industry and connect with peers who share your passion for building.
