A federation of more than 800 state and local associations, NAHB represents more than 140,000 members. Since it was founded in the early 1940s, NAHB has served as the voice of America’s housing industry to help our members defeat federal regulations and defend affordable housing initiatives . They provide critical news and information through NAHB Now, Eye on Housing, specialty e-newsletters, social media, alerts and exclusive website content.

Meeting its members’ business needs and ensuring that they have the tools and resources necessary to succeed is an equally important task, so NAHB also provides educational opportunities, including the International Builders’ Show or IBS, the single most important event of the year for the home building industry and the world’s largest show of its kind for the residential and light commercial construction industry.

HBRA of CT is the statewide component of  four local HBRAs in Connecticut. The state association’s Board of Directors, Senior Officers, committees, councils and task groups, working together as a team with professional staff, offer HBRA members many opportunities to solve industry problems and promote its growth, upholding the highest degree of professionalism, integrity, work ethic, association management expertise and industry knowledge.  Lobbying the state legislature and agencies take the fore-front of the duties for the HBRA of CT.  Whether it is working with allied and other interest groups to affect sound public policies or setting the record straight in the media to support our advocacy role,  the HBRA of CT is effecting a positive public opinion of the industry. The Annual HOBI “Home Building Industry” Awards and Dinner is also the major statewide event honoring the best of the residential building industry.
