Get Connected & Grow Your Business
Since 1945, PBA has been a widely respected voice for the residential construction industry. We are an organization run by members FOR members.
Our success is not possible without the active engagement of our members. If you are involved in the home building industry, we invite you to join our dynamic group of members across the state working on behalf of the industry and the consumer.
BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP
3-in-1 Membership - To become a member of our federation, you must join through the local home builders association serving your area. When you join your local, you automatically become a full member with the state (PBA) and the national (National Association of Home Builders - NAHB) of our federation. That's 3 memberships in one! Find your local now.
Advocacy/Legislative - From tax increases to changes in building codes, the results of many legislative decisions impact your livelihood. PBA's Government Affairs staff monitors legislative, legal and regulatory issues that affect the building industry. We develop clear, practical positions on issues that matter to the industry and our consumers. We make sure that our voice is heard, loud and clear, and we reach and influence decision-makers at all levels of government.
Networking - One of the most valuable benefits is networking. Business relationships are built on trust, credibility and professionalism. Builder and Associate members have the opportunity to network and learn from their peers at the local, state and national level, as well as participate in special-interest task forces, councils and committees together. Doing business with a member is consistently encouraged.
Training and Education - From changing codes to the ever-changing market, PA's building and remodeling environment is competitive. Members can stay ahead of the curve by participating in education and training opportunities offered at the local level, PBA and NAHB and through additional industry leaders and partners like PHRC (Pennsylvania Housing Research Center, PHFA (Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency) and more.
Sample Forms and Contracts - Our members have access to a model building contract for home builders, model independent contractor agreement clauses, plus contracts for home improvement contractors that meet the requirements of the state home improvement contractor registration law, and more.
