Home Builders Association of Greater Toledo
It takes more than a couple carpenters to build a house. Members of the Home Builders Association of Greater Toledo include builders and contractors, developers, designers, attorneys, bankers, and others. The home building industry was hit hard by the economic downturn but members of the HBA are committed to staying on top of changes in their industry. Membership in TMACOG is one way the HBA stays informed.
Executive Director Cindy Westfall says, “ HBA members benefit (from membership in TMACOG) by receiving updates on new and pending regulations and policies being implemented by TMACOG communities.”She notes that membership goes both ways, “TMACOG benefits by receiving feedback on the same issues from HBA members. This partnering ensures that all parties see all sides of an issue and, as best as possible, consensus can be reached and best practices can prevail.”
The HBA of Greater Toledo has approximately 600 member companies in northwest Ohio. It is affiliated with the National Home Builders Association and the Ohio Home Builders Association. The staff of the HBA represents membership interests when governments and legislators make decisions, and when the private sector decides on investments. The HBA sponsors the annual Parade of Homes in September and the House and Home Show in February.
