History


HISTORY OF HOPKINS COUNTY HOME BUILDERS ASSOCIATION

Founded in 1988 with just 19 members, the Hopkins Co. Home Builders Association (HCHBA) is a professional not for profit trade association with just under 100 members. It’s membership not only consists of builder members but also associate members such as material suppliers, financial institutions, subcontractors, engineers, utility companies, insurance providers, lawn & garden suppliers, home décor retailers, developers, real estate brokers/agents, and other companies and individuals with industry related businesses who are involved in home building, home improvement & remodeling as well as light commercial construction in Hopkins and nearby counties.

The HCHBA is affiliated with the Home Builders Association of Kentucky (HBAK), an Association with 25 local associations and nearly 5,000 members, and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and its 800 state and local associations with over 600,000 members.

The HCHBA is the voice of the local building industry and serves the industry and the public by working to head off unreasonable legislation which would adversely affect the cost of providing quality housing and its affordability. The HCHBA provides their builders with information and developments in materials, construction methods, business management and, sales and marketing technology so they can be better builders and businesspeople and provide area home buyers with the best homes available.  All HCHBA builder members are professionals that receive continuing education, offer warranties and contracts and carries workers compensation and liability insurance.

HCHBA member benefits: Reduced workers compensation insurance rates through a self insurance fund, group health insurance rates, scholarships, national discounts (such as Lowe's, Dell, FedEx, GM, Office Depot, Hertz, plus more), networking opportunities, and educational opportunities to name a few.

The HCHBA is active year round with an annual Home Expo in the spring and Golf outing in the fall which serves as their primary fundraisers.  In addition, we hold regular monthly membership meetings; check out our newsletter for meeting details and locations.
