Member Benefits

The Building Industry Association of Whatcom County is one of the largest business organizations in Whatcom County. One of the many benefits of a BIAWC membership is “members doing business with members”. To make this practice easier, we update and compile the BIAWC Membership Directory and Buyer’s Guide in print and digital form annually.

From our Charity Golf Tournament to our Contractor Breakfasts to our General Membership Lunch and Dinner events, the association offers many ways to promote your company, develop contacts, and generate sales. We work hard to ensure that BIAWC members are afforded many opportunities to get together with fellow members in a fun, relaxed setting. Visit the events page or calendar to see upcoming events, meetings & education offered.

3:1 Membership, ROII & Health Insurance
Membership in the local BIAWC also offers benefits at the state and national levels. Professional staff and a team of experts at all levels can help answer your questions on local issues, ROII (Return On Industrial Insurance), and Health Insurance. We can provide you with valuable tools to help you run your business successfully. It really is a 3 in 1 membership and the BIAWC, the BIAW, and the NAHB should be bookmarked for ease of reference and use.

Industry Advocacy
The BIAWC is proud to be a recognized leader in the local home building industry and a major voice in the world of governmental affairs. Your staff and leadership teamwork on your behalf to present a unified voice to address regulatory issues that affect our entire industry. None of us can afford to “do it alone” in an industry so vital to our local economy, so vulnerable to the state and national economies, and so frequently encumbered by the reach of government.  You can learn more about the BIAWC Governmental Affairs committee by visiting the Governmental Affairs page.

In addition, the BIAWC offers a variety of educational opportunities with members enjoying member rates.  Members also enjoy member rates at classes offered by other locals in the state and the BIAW. Classes include First Aid & CPR, Sales & Marketing,  Employment Law, Lien Law & Public Works to name a few. To learn more about the classes offered here visit the classes page.
