HBAI represents more than 1,950 members across the state and works closely with our 10 local associations. It is members’ legal, legislative and regulatory resource for all housing issues.
Advocacy – The most important reason to belong is to be a part of our advocacy efforts – we are working on behalf of you and housing affordability, saving you thousands of dollars. We provide year-round lobbying, working to stay ahead of legislative, code and regulatory issues impacting our industry. This is at the state and national level.
Workforce Development – Bringing new workers into our industry is a major focus for our federation – not everyone needs to go to college and load up on debt when there are so many opportunities to earn while you learn in the trades. We offer scholarships and many training opportunities to advance the cause.
Group Health Insurance – We put together a multiple employer welfare arrangement (MEWA) group health care plan that is only available to our members. The rates and plans will be different from anything offered currently on the market.
Online Rebates with No Receipts – Want to start getting money for products you already use? Our participating members averaged $1,495.13 in rebates during 2020. It’s so easy, no receipts and quarterly submissions online, so minimal time on your part. Plus, there are more than 50 participating manufacturers.
Business Coaching – Small Business Growth Partners exists for the sole purpose of helping small business owners strategically and systematically create a unique, consistent and highly profitable small business and a personal life void of stress, worry and pain. We offer help with marketing, sales, systems, employees, financials and time management.
Travel Discounts – Save up to 75 percent off hotels, rental cars, cruises, activities and more all year long. No blackout dates, earn rewards, 110 percent price-match guarantee and wholesale rates on more than 400,000 hotels.
And So Much More – We have a long list of other benefits such as access to legal forms; gas discounts; property and casualty insurance; and the benefits list continues to grow.
The HBAI Policy & Steering Committee meets monthly and its Board of Directors meets three times per year to conduct association business.
