Nantucket Builders Association (NBA)
NBA represents over 300 Island-based Licensed Tradesmen, as well as others involved in the local building services and supplier community. Our membership is a balanced representation of a typical design-build experience, such as: general contractors, architects, realtors, surveyors, excavators, carpenters, plumbers, HVAC specialists, electricians, insulators, fuel suppliers, insulators, as well as Town building officials and community leaders. The organization is overseen by a board of twelve directors.
We meet monthly as an organization to carry out the NBA's core objectives, such as providing an opportunity for industry education and networking with our colleagues. For nearly twenty years we have provided a Construction Supervisor Training program to help local contractors gain and retain their licenses.
In 2012, the NBA was approved by the BBRS of the MA Department of Public Safety to provide courses leading to Continuing Education Credits. Every year, we host 6-8 Continuing Education workshops, which span the core requirements of the Construction Supervisor License.
Since 2001, the NBA has provided scholarship support for Nantucket High School graduates who express a desire for college or vocational school education or formal training to further their understanding and skills in the building industry. Scholarships have been applied to tuition & start-up tools. NBA also provides financial & technical support for Cyrus Pierce Middle School (CPS) & Nantucket High School(NHS) Wood Working & Construction Technology Programming.
