The president and CEO of South Carolina-based Village Park Homes, Richard Schwartz previously spent many years working in the NC home-building industry. In addition to his experience developing communities, Richard Schwartz has recently obtained his contractor’s license after successfully completing the commercial general building contractor examination offered by the National Association of State Contractors Licensing Agencies (NASCLA).
NASCLA’s membership program is divided into five distinct types: state, associate, affiliate, business, and international. Although each membership type includes its own set of benefits that cater to the member’s specific needs, all NASCLA members receive a series of universal benefits.
General membership benefits range from continuing education and committee service opportunities to marketing and sponsorship opportunities to maximize industry exposure. Members also receive reduced registration fees for NASCLA conferences and training seminars. Firms, individuals, trade associations, and regulatory agencies involved with the construction industry can become members of NASCLA.
