The Home Builders Association of Greenville monitors key legislative issues affecting the local home building industry under the the leadership of the Government Affairs Group, Board of Directors, and the Chief Executive Officer. The association also stays abreast of state and federal legislation through its affiliations with the Home Builders Association of South Carolina and the National Association of Home Builders. Several of our members serve on legislative and political committees at the state and national levels.
The HBA of Greenville understands that day-to-day involvement in public policy best represents our members and the local home building industry. Through the HBA of Greenville’s Government Affairs program, we work on your behalf to influence public policy decisions. Specifically, we work to limit the impact of government regulation on our industry to protect our membership from over regulation and limit the impact of regulation on the cost of housing.
Additionally, your Home Builders Association hosts events annually in the Greater Greenville area, Columbia, and Washington, D.C. to give you the opportunity to interact directly with your government officials.
Below are some of the positions and results that we have achieved on your behalf. Please check the other pages in the Public Policy section for more information.
