A message from Dwayne Gafford | 2018 HBA of GBR Chair


Home Builders Association of Greater Baton Rouge (HBA of GBR) offers a unified voice on industry issues and is proud to be the recognized leader in the home building industry and a major voice in governmental affairs.

Membership benefits can help you work smarter, not harder to enhance your business whether you build one home or 1,000 homes per year. HBA of GBR offers benefits that can save you money, too!

No one can afford to "do it alone" in an enterprise so vital to your region, so impacted by the global market, and so susceptible to the impact of public policy. The association operates for the benefit of the housing industry and those engaged in related fields in the parishes of East Baton Rouge, West Baton Rouge, Livingston, Ascension, East Feliciana, West Feliciana, Iberville, Pointe Coupee, and St. Helena.

I encourage you to join with your fellow builders and become part of the industry that supports you. When you join HBA of GBR, you automatically become a member of the Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB).

Builder Member Testimonials

Robert Carroll, Carroll ConstructionCarroll 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.

Membership is a no-brainer for me. As someone returning to the construction business after many years, HBA of GBR offered the best source of general liability and workers comp insurance. The focused and pertinent educational programs help me get up to speed on critical code and building technology issues. I've worked to become a Certified Graduate Builder and Green Building Professional and those help to establish credibility with customers and the real estate community. I've developed a relationship with my peers in the business that is invaluable. I can't imagine trying to do what I do without HBA of GBR.
