Membership Benefits


The Home Building Association of Richmond (HBAR), created by residential construction businesses in 1946, is the only local collective
body working to protect and advance all aspects of the home building industry. There is no other powerhouse like it. That’s why you will
hear HBAR members say membership is imperative.


The BUILDER, literally building the new homes – single family, multifamily, entire developments, and renovations
The ASSOCIATE, a business that provides any service or material going into the home building, buying, or maintenance process

Every foundation is laid out by many, and every home’s structure is reinforced by a team. At HBAR, there are over 25 events per year
designed to build and reinforce those relationships. Don’t miss Builder Bash, The President’s Dinner, Local Forecast, Meet the Builders, The Blue Jacket Invitational, Happy Hour with the Board and more!

Councils and committees cover the different aspects of the industry:

Multifamily Housing Council                     Legislative Committee
Sales & Marketing Council                        Workforce Development Committee
Associates Council


As a 501c6 not-for-proit organization, HBAR has the legal authority to lobby on behalf of our members. HBAR lobby efforts work daily to
ensure that local governments are educated on the challenges facing the industry and members are seen and heard. A 50% reduction in
cash proffer fees in Chesterfield County is proof that our efforts are working.


Builders and Associates showcase their work to thousands of local consumers through the HBAR sponsored Richmond Homearama and
Parade of Homes. Members also take advantage of B2B marketing and advertising opportunities through sponsorship at our home
building industry designed events and the directory.


As an active member of HBAR, you are also a member of the Home Builders Association of Virginia (HBAV) and the National Association of
Home Builders (NAHB). Whether you are a Builder or Associate, you’ll receive:

• Recognition at the state and national networks
