The Home Builders Association of Greater Springfield was chartered in 1954. Since that date, the Association has enjoyed continued growth and expansion as we have strived to assist and promote the building industry on the local level. The local association is a member of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) with headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The HBA of Greater Springfield is home to approximately 400 members, representing builders, developers, remodelers, and associates in all areas of the residential construction and housing industries.
HBA members (HBA Home Pros) are businesses connected to residential construction and the housing industry in some manner. This includes builders, developers and remodelers as well as banks, plumbers, appliance stores, electricians, lumber, cabinet companies and many more large and small businesses.
To become a HBA Home Pro, companies must submit an application for membership along with the following:
- Have a "B" or better grade with the Better Business Bureau (BBB)
- Sponsored by an existing HBA member
- Provide proof of worker’s compensation (if required by Missouri State law)
- Provide proof of general liability insurance – one of the most important requirements for HBA membership.
