Welcome to the Tri-State Home Builders Association.

Membership in the association closely parallels the changes in the housing industry. In 1967 the industry declined and so did the membership. The same thing happened in 1982. Today, the membership in our association is relatively small but we are no less committed to serving the needs of those involved in the housing industry.

Various committees meet as needed. The general membership meets every two months, except during the summer. Meeting times and locations vary depending on restaurant accommodations.
