WHO WE ARE
Since 1957, the Huntsville Madison County Builders Association has been the area’s professional association for the building industry serving over 1,000 members. This organization is comprised of builders, developers, trade contractors, suppliers, lending institutions, title companies, engineers, attorneys, and various other types of businesses that have a relationship with the building industry.
WHAT WE DO
The Association’s services and activities foster the professionalism of its members and provide a forum for education and information exchange for the benefit of the industry. HMCBA monitors and exerts influence upon issues and regulations affecting the housing industry, particularly those related to availability and affordability.
Membership in the HMCBA represents an opportunity to increase the awareness and profitability of your business through networking, sponsorships and educational programs, while investing in the future of the building industry.
Membership affords you the opportunity to increase business and connect with other professionals in your industry.
The HMCBA is working every day, along with NAHB and HBAA, watching over the interest of your profession.
The HMCBA offers many opportunities to participate in educational programs on a local, regional, and national level.
Members are entitled to remarkable discounts on products and services used daily. By taking advantage of these benefits, companies put dollars back in their pockets.
All HMCBA members have access to member-only information, including HMCBA’s quarterly publication, The Cornerstone, the annual Membership Directory, and the monthly eNewsletter & eCalendar. These resources provide members with breaking news and current information.
3 IN 1 MEMBERSHIP
Every member of the HMCBA is also a member of the Home Builders Association of Alabama (HBAA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). Both organizations continually monitor legislative and regulatory issues that affect the home building industry. Your membership with the HMCBA brings benefits from not one, but all three organizations.
HMCBA MEMBER BENEFITS
Powerful Advocacy. Every day NAHB, HBAA, and HMCBA fight to defeat excessive regulations that are driving up the cost of housing, helping you put money and time back in your pocket. On a local level, we keep you informed promptly and provide opportunities for you to make a difference. We are your regulatory watchdog and political advocate.
Critical News and Information. Knowledge is your best defense in this rapidly changing industry and association membership is the most authoritative source of housing information. Your membership ensures that you’ll be in-the-know.
Insurance Programs. One of the most important benefits, the Alabama Home Builders Self Insurers Fund, offers an alternative to traditional workers compensation insurance. Since 2008, anyone with employees working on a new residential construction site must be covered by workers comp insurance. Without it, an injured worker’s lawsuit could put you out of business. In 2017, HMCBA members received $2,165,621 back in dividends and the Association itself received $1,790.67 in dividends.
Invaluable Networking. With an alliance of more than 1,000 local members, association membership is a one-stop networking shop. Monthly general membership meetings, membership directories, golf tournaments and other special events are just a few of the many ways for members to meet and build relationships with fellow professionals, potential customers and suppliers. Members are always encouraged to do business with other members first.
Education. From Educational seminars and workshops to council meetings and programs, the Association offers its members many opportunities to stay current on topics related to the industry.
Marketing Opportunities. HMCBA offers both consumer and member-to-member advertising, giving you the ability to increase your company’s visibility and credibility. Promote your company to public by exhibiting in the annual Building, Home and Remodeling Show or Fall Home and Garden Show, advertising on www.hmcba.org, or participating in the Parade of Homes. Reach fellow members through The Cornerstone (quarterly HMCBA magazine,) monthly E-Newsletter, monthly E-Calendar, or annual Membership Directory.
Member Referral Service. Consumers call the HMCBA office and view the Online Membership Directory daily looking for builders, remodelers, subcontractors and service providers.
Industry Knowledge. Attend local, state, and national trade shows, seminars, conventions and expos to get a first-hand look at all the latest products and services. Seminars keep you up to date, in compliance and in front of the competition.
Member-only Discounts. You can easily cover the cost of your membership by taking advantage of discount programs offered by your local, state, and national associations on products and services that you use everyday, including Lowe’s, Dell, General Motors, Office Depot, and more!
