Carroll Construction’s membership in the HBA helps keep us competitive because there are so many opportunities to network, market to our target clients, and even share industry information between members. Another incredibly important aspect of your HBA membership is staying up-to-date on regulatory issues, business administration solutions, local codes & ordinances, and national/state/local trends.

The multiple networking events offer me a chance to get face-time with potential clients. The community events, like the Parade of Homes and Building & Remodeling Show, provide an opportunity for me to reach to non-members within the industry. I highly encourage service providers to consider joining the HBA. It is well worth the investment.
