Get a professional edge with high consumer profile and bottom line value. There’s no better deal … there’s no better way to do business in today’s market and economy.

A Strong Voice in Government
Few individual companies can make a difference in the system. However, working together, our members have a respected and powerful voice at all levels of government. Successful lobbying initiatives resulted in a variety of positive legislative, regulatory and policy changes or improvements. SDHBA is a founding member of the Development Liaison Advisory Committee (DLAC).  This committee reports directly to City Council. SDHBA representatives meet regularly with the City ensuring an open line of communication with planners, chief building official and key department heads – people who impact strongly on your industry.

Working from the Inside
Our committees deal directly with the major issues facing your industry, giving you the opportunity to meet regularly with peers and have a real say in your industry’s direction.  Work with fellow members to explore emerging trends, gain advance notice of pending legislation, create fresh ideas and find solutions to current challenges.

There is no better forum for networking, building relationships and gaining market intelligence – helping your business thrive.

Consumer Confidence
The SDHBA’s high standards and credibility are powerful marketing tools.  Each year, our office receives hundreds of calls from the public to obtain referrals or verify membership. Consumers derive great comfort from the fact that SDHBA members have a professional outlook and are willing to subscribe to our Code of Ethics.
