The North Carolina Licensing Board for General Contractors

The State Licensing Board for General Contractors is established with nine members. These members are appointed by the Governor and serve staggered five-year terms.

The board consists of five general contractors, one registered engineer specializing in structural engineering, and three public members. Among the general contractor members, one focuses primarily on highway construction, another on public utilities construction, and one on building construction.

The remaining two members primarily specialize in residential construction, with one of them holding an unlimited general contractor’s license. The public members have no affiliations with the construction industry and represent the interests of the general public.

Board members serve until their respective terms expire or until their successors are appointed and qualified. If a vacancy occurs during a term, the Governor appoints a replacement for the remainder of the unexpired term.

The Governor has the authority to remove any board member for misconduct, incompetency, or neglect of duty. Furthermore, no board member can serve more than two complete consecutive terms.
