Join Us Next Month at the Annual AHBA Build and Remodel Expo

Come see us the first weekend of February at Asheville Home Builders Association's annual
Build and Remodel Expo at the WNC Ag Center. The expo also includes a free class at noon Sunday on "The Bountiful Benefits of Building Green," taught by our executive director, Sam Ruark-Eastes.

Our members can attend the expo free by helping to work our resource booth at the event. In exchange for working a shift with us, you'll receive admission to the show, as well as the opportunity to use the time at our booth to connect with interested community members and network with like-minded businesses.

If you are interested in volunteering at our booth, email your availability to Community Engagement Director Cari Barcas at
Thanks for your support and hope to see you there!
