Membership in St. Thomas & Elgin Home Builders’ Association is a mark of distinction which identifies the company as an industry professional. STEHBA represents 45+ member representatives comprised of the residential construction industry. With membership in our local association, members also benefit from membership in the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA).
Together our voice at the municipal, provincial, and federal level is very strong. Representatives at all three levels of the association interact regularly with elected officials and bureaucrats ensuring that when decisions are made, those making them are informed.
STEHBA actively participates through a number of municipal liaison committees organized to represent the interests of the Association related to building and development issues within our region. STEHBA also coordinates its advocacy efforts with CHBA, OHBA and other Home Builders’ Associations.
Across our region, consumers, business people and elected officials recognize STEHBA’s logo as the sign of professionals. Members let people know that their company has the knowledge, experience, and commitment it takes to succeed in this industry. Members are encouraged to use STEHBA’s logo in marketing materials as a sign of their commitment and professionalism.
Regular communication provides an excellent opportunity to stay in touch with the industry issues. Breaking news is rapidly disseminated to members. STEHBA produces a weekly email bulletin and monthly newsletter to ensure members are up-to-date with all industry information and includes a business news portion at the monthly dinner meetings.
The membership meet nine times per year for monthly dinner. The meetings provide an excellent opportunity for members to come together to network and to be kept informed on the latest issues affecting the industry and the association.
