Why BIA?

Every builder, developer, or related business needs to be united with an association that looks out for it members' interests.

The basics of a healthy construction industry are good communication between elected and appointed government officials and industry representatives.

The building industry is highly regulated and requires a single voice in representing issues that affect your ability to conduct business such as excessive fees, no-growth initiatives, defining infrastructure responsibilities or seeking to bring cost-effectiveness into focus on building standards. Every builder or related business needs a voice to represent them in city halls, board of supervisor chambers, state legislatures, and congress.

Through strength in numbers we can have sufficient influence with local, state, and national legislative and governmental agencies to make an impact.

Why Join?

Along with BIA's representation of the industry's legislative interests on all levels, joining BIA will also give you a significant number of personal and professional opportunities.
