TREBIC’s November 17th Political Leaders Luncheon was held at Grandover Resort. The featured speaker with Anna Beavon Gravely the Executive Director of the North Carolina Free Enterprise Foundation.
Thanks to COVID it had been a hot minute since TREBIC’s last Stop Work Order Event, so it was fantastic to see our members to gather at Southend Brewing on July 28 and Paddled South Brewing on August 16th to show their appreciation for the staff at the City of Greensboro, Guilford County and High Point. The only thing on the program was the opportunity for members to spend time in a social setting with the city and county employees they depend on to get their projects done. By all accounts it was a success and we look forward to hosting these regularly.
Representatives of TREBIC have been in Raleigh throughout the month of June helping coordinate legislative visits for the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce/Business High Point (June 1), the Greensboro Builders Association (June 8), and the Piedmont Triad Apartment Association (June 15).
This year is a short session for the Legislature so the atmosphere was definitely energetic, with legislators focused on getting their business done – particularly the budget – with an eye on adjourning by the July 4 holiday.
Not surprisingly the agendas for all three trips were relatively light, and the most notable news to date has been that the North Carolina Home Builders Association’s (NCHBA) regulatory reform bill was passed by both the House and Senate and as of this writing sits on the Governor’s desk.
TREBIC’s 2019 Membership Kickoff was held Thursday September 6th at Starmount Country Club. Thank you to one and all who attended and committed to support TREBIC and it’s mission in 2019.
