To Protect & Promote
BCHBA strives to protect the American Dream of housing opportunities for all, while working to achieve professional success for our members. Together we build the Big Country: educate & train future tradesmen, create jobs, sustain careers and strengthen our economy.
What is the HBA?
The Big Country Home Builders Association is a non-profit, voluntary trade organization representing all segments of the residential building industry. We are not a regulatory agency. The Association is governed by a Board of Directors elected by members, and the Board directs the policies and operations of the Association in accordance with its bylaws.
The Association’s policies and bylaws do not include any formal or informal process to settle disputes or complaints against industry members. However, those experiencing difficulties with home construction projects are welcome to share their experience with the Board in order to help guide future training and education efforts.
Serving our Industry
The BCHBA helps its members build communities. Each year, our members construct about 80% of the new homes built in the Big Country, both single-family and multifamily.
A federation of more than 300 local builders, developers and industry businesses, the BCHBA represents more than 4,000 local industry employees. About one-third are home builders and remodelers. The rest work in closely related specialties such as sales and marketing, housing finance, and manufacturing and supplying building materials.
Since our founding in the 1950’s, BCHBA has served as the voice of America’s housing industry. We work to ensure that housing is a priority and that all Big Country residents have access to safe, decent and affordable housing, whether they choose to buy a home or rent.
Achieving that goal is increasingly difficult in today’s contentious and unsettled political and financial environment, one in which the concept of homeownership as a priority is very much under attack. We champion laws and regulations designed to reverse this dangerous course that will drive down the value of the nation’s housing stock, drive up the cost of rental housing, and threaten the economic recovery.
Meeting our members’ business needs and ensuring that you have the tools and resources necessary to succeed is an equally important task, so BCHBA is diligently working to provide educational opportunities, personal & workforce development.
