The Year in Review
2015 Brings Growth to the GHBA
Thanks to the support, participation and sponsorship of our great members, the GHBA’s membership and bottom line increased in 2015. Our councils, committees and divisions saw record attendance at meetings and events.
GHBA’s educational classes also saw record attendance and tackled critical issues in the industry such as safety, best practices and cutting-edge technology. GHBA’s government affairs advocacy enjoyed a successful legislative year in the state legislature, strengthened solid working relationships with our federal congressional delegation, and paved the way for new working relationships with local elected officials.
With over 27,000 new home starts in 2015, your industry contributed approximately $3 Billion to the local economy and contributed some 60,000 jobs.
Challenges in 2015 included the decline of the oil and gas market, financing, lot supply and pricing.
However, the Houston area still experienced growth thanks to the diverse industries that continue to thrive in our region. In fact, the Wall Street Journal cited Houston as one of five cities that are leading the way in urban innovation!
As we look ahead to 2017, the GHBA remains committed to identifying ways to better serve the membership. Onward! Casey Morgan, CEO
