What our Members are Saying About Usfacebook

...You can save more than it costs to join...


Florida Pest Control has had the pleasure to be associated with the National Association of Home Builder’s local chapter (NAHB) for almost five decades.  Over that extended period of time we have benefitted from many programs sponsored by the NAHB.  One such program was a vehicle purchase discount arrangement.  With 20 offices around the State and over 400 vehicles on the road, programs of this nature allow us to continue to provide effective and cost efficient pest control solutions.  Thanks to the NAHB for the many opportunities provided to Florida Pest Control as we continue to proudly serve – and grow - our customer base.

...Meet the right people at the right time...

Becoming a member of BANCF was a great decision for Sherwin-Williams.  Nowhere else could I get the opportunity to meet, network and interact with so many potential customers.  Membership has opened doors to face to face meetings and many relationships important to my business.

...Rewarding professional and personal opportunities...


I truly believe that BANCF is the best run organization I have ever belonged to and if I could only belong to one business organization it would be BANCF, hands down!  As an Associate member of BANCF for many years, I feel the biggest value of my membership and participation in BANCF is the opportunity to build lasting relationships. I have made so many friends over the years. The members of this association truly believe in “doing business with members” and I always look for opportunities to do business with a BANCF member first.  They offer so many opportunities to get involved and become a part of something bigger. The monthly membership meetings have over 250 people in attendance month after month. BANCF offers so many networking opportunities for the members. No matter what your interests are they have something for everyone. You can join a variety of committees, become an Ambassador, or just enjoy one of the fun events, like the horseshoe mixer, golf outings, silent auction mixer, or fishing tournaments.  BANCF consistently affords us the venue to share ideas, celebrate accomplishments, and collectively advocate for the betterment of all our businesses.

...Benefit your business in every way…

BBI has been a member of BANCF for over 17 years of the 60 years BANCF has been in existence.  By being a member of BANCF our company has enjoyed the collective benefits of the organization and the varied expertise of the membership.  We have maintained our membership and continue to support BANCF because it provides a variety of opportunities to network, market, advertise, stay informed and give back to the community.   I strongly suggest taking advantage of this opportunity and get involved with BANCF!

...The most effective and fun networking you will find…

Being an active member of BANCF has helped me excel in my career exponentially.  The membership meeting and after hours events are a lot of fun and create a fantastic environment for professional networking and building relationships.  We are fortunate to have such an outstanding local organization that represents the greater interests of our business community and keeps membership informed on local issues that could significantly impact our companies.  BANCF is the most powerful and enjoyable association that I have ever been a part of and I would highly recommend anyone to become a member.

...Make connections, make clients, make friends...

There’s an old saying that says, “Membership has its advantages” and in this association that stands clear and tall!  When you think of the contractor and all the different businesses that go into building a house or commercial building…  Then you think of all of the businesses that offer products or services after the house is built that enhances the lifestyle of the home owners and business owners -this makes us a very diverse group that compliments each other.  Personally, I have met many lifelong friends from being a member and have had the luxury of working with many friends/members.  I would encourage anyone that would like to be a part of this proactive, industry leading organization to come join us in fun, fellowship and working together to improve and enhance the American Dream.  I think you will find it professionally and personally rewarding.

...Marketing Opportuntites...

Membership has been truly beneficial to me and my business.  As a new restaurant owner it was important to utilize all marketing opportunities to get the Piesanos name out there.  Joining the Builders Association has been a rewarding experience and has accomplished this in many ways.  As one of their event sponsors I was able to showcase my business to many potential new customers.  Their marketing opportunities are unique as well as enjoyable to participate in.  Being a part of this association is truly worth it to me.

...A Return on Our Investment...

Joining the Builders Association of North Central Florida has been a blessing to our business. We made a return on our investment after being a member only for one month.  The contacts we have made have taken our business to another level and we highly recommend joining the Builders Association of North Central Florida.  Take advantage of the opportunity and get involved.

...Fight for Free Enterprise and Small Business...

Being a member of the Builders Association is one of the most powerful decisions a business owner can invest in.  It is one of the ONLY Associations that has the most prominent people serving on its Board that invest hundreds of volunteer hours trying to fight for free enterprise and small business at the local, state and national level.  The construction industry is the engine that drives the economy.  The active members who serve on the various committees invest their time to help protect and preserve not only business areas that effect the construction industry, but fight the fight of helping to prevent government from excessive taxation, impact fees, adjustment fees, school fees, road, fees, etc. to insure that our local area can grow and prosper and help to keep you in business. I feel it is the most important money you can spend each year to help keep our economy recovering and hopefully flourish again.

...Stay Informed and Make a Difference...

Being a part of this organization helps me stay informed and motivates me to make a difference on local government issues that are important to my business.  We must stay focused on issues that affect our industry and BANCF helps us do that.

...An Organization is Only as Strong as its Members...

I have always said that an organization is only as strong as its members.  Our members work together so well. “Do Business with a Member” is not an empty slogan. The building industry is one of the largest employers in our area. Just think of how many businesses are involved when a home or commercial building is constructed. You owe it to yourself to be a member of an organization that supports so many other businesses.  It’s true for me – I’ve been a member for over 25 years!

...Starting a New Business or Make your Business Better...

Membership in the BANCF is the first place to go when starting a new business or making the business you already have, better.  Knowledge is your best defense in our rapidly changing industry and BANCF is the place to get it.

...Not Just for Builders...

Not being in the building industry, when we were first urged by a friend to join the builders association, my business partner and I were skeptical.  However, BANCF has been a positive catalyst for growth for us and for our company. BANCF has provided us the opportunity to make high quality professional and personal connections, exposed and educated us on critical issues affecting not just the building industry, but also the community and we have a lot of fun in the process! I look forward each month to the luncheons where I always walk away with more connections and more knowledge. If you are committed to building a strong business and a strong community, I highly encourage you to join and then utilize your BANCF membership.
