Member Testimonials

“We need to do what we can as members to participate in as much stuff with the HBAGTA as possible and have a little fun with it. If we do that I think it will help in forging strong relationships with other members, many with which we will likely want to partner with on future projects. I think what you guys are doing at the HBA is fantastic. Please keep up the great effort!!!!!”  Pete Hall, Premier Custom Homes

"The HBA CAPS Certification course offers a wealth of information to any builder or other professional, interested in expanding their knowledge of incorporating spaces for seniors or anyone requiring additional accommodations, with the goal towards staying in their existing home.  This valuable class can help improve your business for a growing market.
