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, non-profit organizations and municipalities. We will lead and participate as needed in the housing attainability conversation and will advocate for market-driven solutions that address the need for housing for our community. 

BUILD
COMMUNITY

We will continue to contribute to our community through expanding our nationally recognized Careers in Construction Colorado (CICC). We are currently in 46 high schools throughout Colorado, 14 in El Paso County.  CICC facilitates construction courses providing students with real skills, hands-on training, certificates and industry-supported career pathways for employment.  We believe students deserve choices.

The HBA also builds community with our Emerging Leadership Program.  The HBA’s Leadership Development program continues to engage the next generation of industry leaders to teach them the importance of the industry, 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 offers education and training opportunities that our members want and need to help them stay safe, competitive and current in their business. 

We also offer exciting events, and committee opportunities that allow members to make valuable connections, grow their networks and enhance their business.
