The HBA is the heart and soul of our local home building industry and when people in the Kansas City want to buy, build, finance, remodel or maintain a home, they look to the Home Builders Association of Greater Kansas City as their go-to resource for professionals. Raise your reputation with increased credibility through membership in the HBA.
You Have a Voice
Local, state and national government relations and lobbying keep housing affordable and limit regulation. In a typical year, actions save more than $10,000 on each new home. It’s not just who you know, it’s who others know that can make a difference in your business.
Stand Out from the Competition
Members immediately get access to our resources, networking opportunities, discounts, educational programs, marketing events and community service projects. Partnering with the HBA is one of the most effective marketing strategies your company can use. No other organization can help you promote your brand, build relationships, develop business leads and increase sales better than we can!
Plus, Kansas City is home to the second largest new-home tour in the country. Members who participate in the HBA’s Spring and Fall Parade of Homes and awards contests receive the benefit of a comprehensive and professional advertising and promotion campaign twice a year.
When a company joins the HBA, they also become a member of the National Association of Home Builders and the HBA of Missouri or Kansas Builders Industry Association. You have the backing of not only your 800 local members, but more than 30,000 state and national professional members fighting for our industry.
Membership Doesn’t Cost, It Pays
Your 3-in-1 membership also provides you access to over 150 cost-saving discounts. Benefits range from our local health insurance program from Cornerstone Companies called “Outfront Health” to NAHB’s Member Advantage program, which offers discounts at many national companies for your everyday business needs.
Meet New People
With about 175 gatherings per year — ranging from specialized councils to tournaments and general membership meetings — the HBA provides many opportunities to create new and profitable relationships in the building industry.
Be First to Know When Changes are Coming
The HBA keeps members updated on changes in the industry in many ways including the monthly Building Business News magazine, the weekly e-newsletter This Week at the HBA, social media pages on Facebook and Twitter, and access to the latest national information from the National Association of Home Builders.
Earn Continuing Education Credits
Each year, the association offers numerous continuing education programs on topics ranging from economic forecasts to aging-in-place. Members receive discounted registration and can distinguish themselves by earning professional designations.
