NEVADA COUNTY UP from the ground By Barbara Bashall, Executive Director, NCCA NCCA, the Nevada County Builders’ Exchange Inc., dba the Nevada County Contractors’ Association. Was formed in 1958 by a few contractors who wanted to help out a fellow contractor and improve the professionalism within the industry. We incorporated in 1960 and established ourselves as a nonprofit trade association serving the construction industry in Nevada County. In the years since, it has grown to a strong membership based association becoming a multi-faceted organization with many services for its members and providing information to consumers to help them with their construction projects. The Association is governed by a ten-member board of directors and staffed by an executive director and administrative staff. We believe those in the construction industry need a strong, industry wide organization that will provide them with the services they need and act as an effective basis for group action in dealing with matters of industry-wide concern. The Association provides a voice for the industry in dealing with government agencies and other community groups. It also acts to promote the enforcement and conformity of building codes and encourages high standards among those in the construction industry and related fields. The Association also serves the community at large by promoting a healthy economy and encouraging economic growth. DESTINATION Nevada County 125
