The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) is one of the largest trade associations in the United States, representing the interests of home builders, developers, contractors, and associated businesses.

Our industry has provided us with great success over the past couple years, with an enormous growth in the housing market, which directly affects all of our members. Now, it seems things have started to slow down, with a pending recession, interest rates rising, and costs of goods increasing from the gas pump to the grocery store. In times like this, being a part of a network such as the HBA can really benefit our members, from granting leadership opportunities to partnerships with members doing business with fellow members.

Being a member of the HBA can provide you with great benefits and opportunities for yourself and your company.

The HBA is a very important resource for contractors, builders, and associate members. One of the benefits the HBA can offer is knowledge about new products, best business practices, and national resources. Members can also receive discounts on life and dental insurance and workers’ compensation. The HBA provides networking opportunities with local, regional, and national tradespeople within our industry, as well as local and state government officials. The HBA also provides information on local, state, and national building codes, which directly impact our industry.

Our members are passionate about the construction industry. It is our industry; we own it, we thrive within it. It provides us with career opportunities and affordable housing for ourselves and our clients. Our local HBAs throughout the state are dedicated to promoting, protecting, and strengthening the building market and also to giving back to our communities.

Our History and Membership

Since it was founded in the early 1940s, NAHB has served as the voice of America’s housing industry. We work to ensure that housing is a national priority and that all Americans have access to safe, decent, and affordable housing, whether they choose to buy a home or rent.

NAHB helps its members build communities. Each year, NAHB’s members construct about 80% of the new homes built in the United States, both single-family and multifamily.

A Federation of more than 700 state and local associations, NAHB represents more than 140,000 members. 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.
