WHAT WE DO & OUR STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

WHAT WE DO

The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs is a private, non-profit 501(C)(6) corporation representing builders, developers, and remodelers, as well as trade contractors, materials suppliers, mortgage lenders, real estate agents, title companies, interior designers, architects, landscapers and beyond. We are more than members – we are community leaders and builders. Together, we contribute to the growth, prosperity and quality of life this exceptional community has come to enjoy.

As it has done since its beginnings in October of 1950, the HBA strives to raise the public perception of, and increase the business and career opportunities for, the men and women of our industry. Housing is a necessity as well as part of the American Dream, and we are, through our members, the providers who meet the housing needs of the community. We are also proud to be the authoritative voice and information source for housing to government, the general public and the housing consumer.

OUR MISSION

The Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs promotes policies that allow for the production of safe and attainable housing and enhances the environment for the housing and building industry in El Paso County.

OUR STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

FOCUSED ON OUR GOALS

At the end of each year, the Housing & Building Association of Colorado Springs identifies Strategic Priorities that are adopted into our annual business plan for the following year. Informed by the most critical issues impacting our industry and our community, these Strategic Priorities serve to uphold the mission that has guided our association for more than six decades.

The HBA is carrying out the following Strategic Priorities:

ADVOCATE FOR
HOUSING

The HBA will continue to build positive relationships with local associations, organizations and elected officials. We will participate in the housing affordability conversation and will push for market-driven solutions that address the need for housing for the working class.

We will remain proactive in regulatory reform, including building codes, EPA regulation, the Colorado Springs Comprehensive Plan, and the statewide limited growth initiative.

BUILD
COMMUNITY

We will continue to expand our nationally-recognized Careers in Construction program into local classrooms at the high school and college level, with the goal of empowering students to graduate with real-life skills in construction and move into the workforce.

The HBA’s Leadership Development program will engage the next generation of industry leaders to teach them the depth and breadth of the HBA and enable them to become a vital part of the Association and the community.

ENHANCE THE VALUE
OF MEMBERSHIP

The HBA will offer exciting new events and venues that allow members to make valuable connections, grow their networks and enhance their business.

We will offer more education and training opportunities that our members want and need to help them stay safe, competitive and current in their business.
