The Value of your HBA of SC Membership

Your investment in the residential construction industry as a member of your home builders association is a great value.

Your membership in the federation that consists of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), Home Builders Association of South Carolina (HBASC) and your local home builders association (HBA) gives us strength in numbers and a strong voice at City Hall, the State Capitol, and in Washington, D.C.

The HBASC has 15 local HBAs and more than 3,500 members across South Carolina. Representing over 42,000 jobs and more than $3.8 billion annually in the SC economy, the state and local associations play a crucial role in providing housing for the Palmetto State. The NAHB has almost 140,000 members nationwide.

Why Become a member of HBASC?

Joining HBASC allows you to tap into tools and resources that contribute to your economic growth. Our members evolve into first-rate builders through educational and networking opportunities and leadership positions.

The HBASC is the voice of home builders in our state, representing everything for which you stand. We play a key role in helping you maintain consistently higher industry standards of conduct, quality, and ethics. Your membership in the HBASC assists in solidifying opinions affecting change through Congress, the SC General Assembly, the courts, and regulatory agencies.
