Affiliate Member Application - $50
Do you have members active in the Brown County Home Builders Association at multiple locations? Have you thought about becoming an Affiliate Member of the BCHBA? As an Affiliate Member of the BCHBA, you have the opportunity to have a separate listing in the BCHBA Membership Directory, as well as the website. Take advantage of the great benefits we have to Offer.
The following must be completed before you are eligible to become a Builder Member:
1. Successfully complete and file with the Wisconsin Department of Safety & Professional Services (DSPS) a Business Credential Application and have been granted a Dwelling Contractor Certification (DCC)
2. Complete and file a Wisconsin DSPS Credential Application and be granted a Dwelling Contractor Qualifier Certification (DCQ). According to the Wisconsin DSPS, a builder must renew the DCQ which is contingent upon the builder obtaining a minimum of 12 hours of acceptable continuing education three months prior to the expiration date of the credential. Credentials expire two years from the date of issue. If at any time the DCQ and/or DCC become invalid, the Builder's membership will be transferred to an Associate membership until the DCQ and/or DCC requirements are validated by the Wisconsin DSPS and verified by the BCHBA
If you currently do not meet the requirements above, you may join the BCHBA as an Associate member and indicate on your application your desire to work toward a Builder membership.
If you currently hold a Builder Membership with another Home Builders Association (HBA), your membership dues and the waiting period on Showcase/Tour participation will still apply.
BCHBA Courses: The BCHBA offers courses that will help you achieve educational credits required by the Wisconsin DSPS. Many are conveniently scheduled before or after monthly Membership Meetings to allow you to attend both meetings in one day at one location. Please see your Membership Directory or visit BCHBA.org for a calendar of educational events. Additional opportunities are also scheduled spontaneously throughout the year - watch your Breaking Ground Newsletter for details.
