Hello Current or Prospective Member,

Did you know that the Georgia High Country Builders Association (GHCBA) is comprised of members from Gilmer, Fannin, and Pickens counties?  Our membership continues to grow and as such strengthens your voice in these county communities.

Home building is one of the largest industries in our communities.  GHCBA gives our members the opportunity to network with other local builders, developers, and associated businesses. The best way to get involved is through participation in committees, chapters, or councils. Each allows you to meet within a contextualized area within the GHCBA.

GHCBA is built on our Four Pillars (+ one cool fact).

  1. Advocacy: GHCBA advocates on your behalf to our local governments to promote continued growth and to be a voice for reasonable code interpretation, permitting and zoning issues.
  2. Networking: Through monthly membership meetings, unique platforms, and environments, you are able to network with companies near where you work and live as well as your fellow builders.
    • Our Subcommittees provide an excellent opportunity for you to get involved and to make a difference.:
        1. Membership
        2. Government Affairs
        3. Charities
        4. Scholarship
        5. Special Events, i.e. Golf Tournament, North Georgia Living Showcase, Blue Ridge Builders Showcase
        6. Membership Meeting Program

      Get involved with 1 or more of these subcommittees. You will understand the broad reach our association has and the economic impact it has on the area.

    • Councils: Get involved with the other specialty councils such as the 55+Builders Council associated with the State. They are looking to grow.
    • There are events all throughout the year like Builder Speed Dating, Meet the Builder, OBIE Awards, and many more that provide environments for you to grow and enrich your business.
  3. Education: Every builder needs their CE’s and GHCBA offers classes all throughout the year.
  4. Community Serve: Looking for a way to give back?  GHCBA supports volunteerism and donations to several charities.
  5. 3-in-1 Membership: When you join GHCBA, you join the Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), as well as the sister counties that make up GHCBA.

For a quick reference, you can find the application on our website.
