HBA of GBR Member Testimonials
Carroll Construction's membership in HBA of GBR 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 HBA of GBR membership is staying up-to-date on regulatory issues, business administration solutions, local codes & ordinances, and national/state/local trends.
As a service provider who specializes in working with businesses in the construction and remodeling industry, there is no better organization in which to market than the HBA of GBR! The multiple networking events offer me a chance to get face-time with potential clients, and the community events, like the Parade of Homes and Building & Remodeling Show, provide an opportunity for me to reach non-members within the industry.
The HBA of GBR has helped my business, Academy Painting, LLC, gain some very prominent exposure through events like the Building and Remodeling Show. Plus, I really value the networking opportunities so that I can establish more contacts within the remodeling and new construction industries.
