There are 5 key pillars that help to frame the value of membership within our association. These pillars are the perfect tool to recruit new members and maintain relationships with current members.

Advocacy –

The Home Builders Association of Berks County represents the home building industry on the local level in Berks County. With over 200 members, we are the voice of the community when it comes to addressing issues within the building industry.

Expertise –


The Pennsylvania Builders Association represents the home building industry at the state level, and often works with individual locals at the municipal level. PBA has staff that is knowledgeable on statewide issues concerning your industry & government affairs. The battles won have resulted in members saving thousands of dollars per home.

The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) represents our industry at the federal level.

Why It Matters: Building codes can have a profound impact on the comfort and safety of residents as well as the cost of construction and the cost of operating the home. NAHB can help members work toward cost-effective and safe codes. There is staff liaison available to assist you. NAHB also offers members FREE legal research, sample contracts and more!

Savings –

Save money and earn your membership dollars back by taking advantage of various discount programs! The annual PA One Call fee of $125.00 is waived. Fax or email us your invoice, and we’ll take care of the rest. Take advantage of the Member Rebate Program, get discounted rates on Worker’s Compensation, take advantage of the $500 / $1,000 GM Discount offer, Verizon discounts and more!

Networking –

Get involved, get to know fellow members on both the local and the state level. HBA Members are welcome at all state meetings & events. Attending events is a great way to network. Sponsorship opportunities are available and will allow you to promote your business too other HBA members. Participate or volunteer in local events. On a local level, the HBA of Berks gives everyone an opportunity to participate in the Annual Home Show, Lobsterfest, Parade of Homes, Builders & Remodelers Awards ceremony and free or low cost networking events.

Knowledge –

Free or low cost seminars offered by the HBA of Berks County. On occasion, we will partner up with local likeminded organizations and hold joint seminars.

Get Certified! NAHB has a variety of Certification programs for both Builders & Remodelers, at discounted prices. You can access these courses conveniently online from your office or from home.

When in need, members have access to professionals on all three levels, who are knowledgeable industry experts!

Some battles being fought on behalf of the building industry are much bigger than others. At some point, the battles being fought in other states, may end up being the same battles we will have to fight here in Berks County in the near future. If it affect’s one, it may affect us all.
