Have you heard of the Greater Houston Builders Association? The GHBA is a trade association whose members are involved in the development, homebuilding, and remodeling industry across seven counties. The Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) was chartered in 1941 and for over seventy years has developed a network of government, community, and public relationships designed to enhance the business climate for its members, while at the same time providing quality obtainable housing for the community. The GHBA is the largest home builders association (HBA) in Texas and the fourth largest in the U.S. Currently the industry employs 60,000 people and generates upwards of $3 billion to the local economy. The GHBA is an integral part of the Houston building and remodeling community.
Education & Training
By educating and training professionals, the GHBA helps to create and maintain the highest standards of performance among home building and remodeling professionals. Continuing education for remodelers and home builders results in career enhancement and a polished professional image, but it also increases levels of expertise in a professional career that results in superior work for clients. Education and training are also wonderful opportunities for building a professional network.
The GHBA is dedicated to giving back to the community it serves. Whether it’s through the HomeAid Houston project, dedicated to building dignified housing where homeless families and individuals can rebuild their lives, the Benefit Homes Project, or the GHBA Scholarship Program, the GHBA knows that selfless service is essential to building a strong community.
Politics may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think about home building and remodeling, but the GHBA understands that protection of affordable housing and consumer choices are integral to a strong homebuilding industry. You can learn more about how GHBA advocates on behalf of homeowners and homebuilders on the political advocacy section of their website, which includes information on everything from government affairs and election information to OSHA updates and information on your elected representatives.
