Formed in 2003, BASE is a 501c6 non-profit advocacy organization that acts as a responsible “voice” and advocate for business and industry in southeastern North Carolina. Our focus is regional and we work on behalf of business and industry in New Hanover, Brunswick, Pender and Onslow counties.
BASE works cooperatively with all other regional business and economic development organizations to further the best interests of business and industry. We do not compete with these organizations – we complement their efforts as the full-time ADVOCATE for business.
BASE is the ONLY business organization that is 100% committed to advocacy. Other membership organizations have advocacy as part of their mission, but this is our one and only mission. BASE is solely committed to advocating on behalf of the business community and our advocacy partners.
Because advocacy is our singular mission, we are laser focused on achieving the best results for our community. We are not distracted with other priorities and obligations, so we operate very effectively and efficiently to achieve our goals. Our members’ investment provides one of the best ROIs of any business organization in the Cape Fear region.
As President and CEO of BASE, Tyler Newman attends numerous meetings with a wide range of legislators, regulators, industry organizations and others to consistently represent the best interests of business and industry throughout southeastern NC. BASE has formal advocacy partnerships with the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce and numerous Home Builders and REALTORS Associations to ensure the voice of business and industry is well represented in southeastern North Carolina.
Our mission is to support public policy that attracts a mix of business and industry and enhances economic opportunities in southeastern North Carolina. We provide value to our members by tracking all local, state and federal issues that impact our economy and quality of life. We work with stakeholders to mitigate negative issues and promote policies that support the best interests of the regional business community.
We ask for your support and membership and welcome all business and industry interested in the continued growth and success of our region.
What is NCPAC?
A key component of the REALTOR® Party is the REALTOR® Political Action Committee (NCPAC). The sole purpose of NCPAC is a simple goal: To help elect real estate-friendly candidates to public office.
NCPAC backs candidates who understand and support the interests of North Carolina REALTORS®, regardless of a candidate's party affiliation. RPAC backs candidates in primary, general, run-off and deficit elections.
RPAC is effective because it allows REALTORS® to work with all parties to enact legislation that protects the real estate industry, current and future homeowners, the real estate-based economy and property rights.
Why Should I Invest?
Not only is RPAC the most bipartisan political action committee in the nation--it is the most successful.
Consider RPAC's record from the 2016 election cycle.
