SICBA Membership Attributes
A quote to a potential member from Jon D. Roberts, CGB, CGP, CAPS of Cascade Custom Homes & Design Inc.
“I guess I never told you about the amazing opportunities available from being a member of the Skagit/Island County Builders Association. Bad on me. This is a great opportunity that I don’t think you want to miss. Your membership gives you Local, State and National accountability and perks you can never dream of. As a subcontractor you will be in our GOLDMINE Directory for other General Contractors to view and use for referrals. Cascade Custom Homes personally saved over $18,000 in 2013 after a BOGUS L&I Claim in penalties, interest and attorney fees as we were represented by The State Builders Association lawyers!”
A Testimonial from Board of Director. Josh Baldwin of Quantum Construction!
“Thought I’d throw in my two cents – the networking is definitely a plus, and I know a large number of our members work almost exclusively with other SICBA members. But where Quantum gets a lot back is in things like the ROII, health insurance, and discounts on our cell phone bill. We actually save 13 times our dues in various savings! Definitely worth it to us. We’ve also have given somewhere in the neighborhood of $150,000 in work to sub’s we’ve found through SICBA over the last year and a half.” Josh Baldwin, Quantum Construction
From a Previous Member & Board of Director, Jon Westdal:
“I was looking at an ad for a business seminar with an accomplished speaker. One night’s presentation, travel, hotel, food, (wow!) adds up to some big bucks when you sit in an auditorium several hundred feet from a speaker, and just listen. Well I started thinking. I’m in an organization where 11 times a year, and one picnic, I get to have access to some of the best business people in the Skagit Valley while having dinner and conversation with them! I get one-on-one face time. By being involved in this organization, I get an additional 11 interactions at meetings. Again, I get one-on-one face time. When attending the hill day, I get to know more members and have access to our elected officials in a small setting where I get more one-on-one face time. By becoming even more involved, going to the next level, I have access to some of the best business people in the state! Yup, you guessed it. I get one-on-one face time! Now will I get sales from this? Probably. Will I get priceless information, advice, and mentoring? Without question. So what am I talking about? Skagit/Island Counties Builders Association! Come and join me. Get involved. It’s an invaluable tool.”
