National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is a trade association that helps promote the policies that make housing a national priority. Since 1942, NAHB has been serving its members, the housing industry, and the public at large. The North Central West Virginia chapter is dedicated to the needs and education of our members and the betterment of the residential building industry.
Last year's show, which was held at the Ruby Community Center at Mylan Park, was once again our best show ever, with 140 exhibitors occupying 208 spaces. Attendance was again phenomenal (it has ranged from 8500- 11,000 the last 3 years) and we are hoping to make this year's show even better.
The North Central West Virginia Home Builders Association "Home Show 2020" is scheduled to be held on March 13-15, 2020. The hours for the show will be from 12 pm - 7 pm on Friday, 10 am - 7 pm on Saturday and 10 am - 4 pm on Sunday.
