How the BNBA Supports our Members: Keeps you informed on the building industry issues that affect your businesses through regular publications, the BNBA web site, as well as special mailings when necessary. Showcases BNBA-member home builders and the related trades through promotional programs and events such as the annual Horizons Home Show and consumer new home publications that highlight our members. Offers health and workers’ compensation insurance programs. Provides continuing education through seminars, classes and workshops. Provides networking opportunities to promote members’ own products and services and encourages “members doing business with members.” Encourages high ethical and professional standards that reflect favorably on the industry and the Association. Supports the efforts of public, private and nonprofit organizations that provide job skill training to produce quality workers for the industry. Participates in the city, county, state and federal legislative process that enacts builder-related laws, rules and regulations. Provides social contacts through general membership meetings and other special events. Every member of the BNBA is also a member of the New York State Builders Association (NYSBA). NYSBA provides a wider business and political base for our membership. One primary activity is to monitor government activities that affect the home building industry.
Our National Affiliation The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), headquartered in Washington, D.C., represents the interests of home builder members throughout the country, including members of the NFBA. It continually watches legislation and guidelines that have a national impact on the industry. Among the valuable services provided by NAHB are a computerized leg
al research system, a library, subscriptions to magazines, newsletters and pamphlets covering many subjects of interest to members.
