The HBA has a variety of Committees to get involved in - from Regulatory and Workforce, to Membership and Leadership, to Public Events and Philanthropy. Serving on a committee is a rewarding way to share your expertise and interests with fellow members as we all strive to advance our careers and HBA's goals.
The HBA is actively involved in city, state and national issues related to the regulatory process, working for and with our members to promote the housing industry. We focus on impacting housing issues that remove regulatory barriers to building affordable housing, help protect property rights, provide tax relief for small businesses, and assure accessible, affordable financing.

The Membership Committee is responsible for executing two issues of the HBA's strategic plan, adopted by the Board of Directors: Recruit, retain and engage members and Leadership development of the Committee.

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE
In January, 2019, the HBA’s Workforce Development Committee in
partnership with the Associated General Contractors (AGC) and with the approval of the HBA Board of Directors was spun off into its own entity as a 501c3 non-profit in partnership - Careers in Construction Colorado (CICC) in order to better facilitate the mission of the Workforce Development committee. CICC has an 11-member board with appointed members representing the HBA and AGC, as well as the education sector.
