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.
Membership Doesn’t Cost, It Pays
Your KCHBA membership provides you access to over 150 cost-saving discounts. Benefits opportunities include:
- KCHBArebates.com for builders/remodelers. Over 70 percent of members who participated last year received more in rebates than they paid in annual dues to their HBA.
- NAHB’s Member Savings programs, which offers discounts at many national companies for your everyday business needs, including vehicles.
