Without HBAV Government Affairs program, builders and developers would have no protection from overburdensome legislation and regulation.  HBAV allows me the opportunity to operate a successful business in Virginia.

I get the most out of the HBAV networking and leadership opportunities.  Whether it's networking events at my local association, attending the HBAV Annual Conference, or NAHB International Builders Show.
