Who we are…
The HBR of CNY has over 180 members engaged in the residential construction industry. The dues our members invest in our local chapter also makes them a member of the New York State Builders Association (NYSBA), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). These other two organizations are a tremendous resource to our local association and to each of our members.
What we do…
Beyond all of the resources we bring to our members, we produce a public trade show - the Home & Garden Show, which is a showcase for the industry. Annual public attendance is on average 24,000 patrons. The largest event of its kind in the Northeast, the show has over 850 booth spaces and dozens of educational sessions for consumers – including ones that offer advice to consumers on how to choose a contractor wisely.
We also produce the annual Parade of Homes. This single site event allows patrons to walk through fully decorated and landscaped houses, allowing them to gather information on products for their existing homes, or to see the newest floor plans, designs and products in new home construction.
Our membership is actively involved in legislative matters on the local, state and national levels which impact home building and related industries. We conduct a variety of social functions and educational classes throughout the year, and we have monthly general membership meetings. We also work closely with area Realtors and Mortgage Bankers on problems of mutual concern.
