A strong, enthusiastic generation of leaders is bringing new ideas and excitement to the Greater Houston Builders Association. The mission of the GHBA Young Professionals Committee is to establish an environment for educational, philanthropic, networking and career growth opportunities for Young Professionals affiliated with the development, remodeling and homebuilding industries.

Young Professionals (“YPs”) is loosely defined as professionals ages 45 and under. All young professional employees of GHBA member companies are encouraged to get involved with the YPs!

This is an opportune time for you to become part of something that can help strengthen your career and contacts.



Networking Events

The GHBA will host three YP Networkings a year. All young professional employees of GHBA members are encouraged to attend.

Here’s what our members say:

Receiving the first ever GHBA Young Professional of the Year award is the proudest professional moment of my life. I always do my best to work towards results instead of recognition, but I must say that the recognition feels amazing. After receiving the award, I had several members come by to congratulate me, some of whom I just wanted to know my name several years ago. If it weren’t for the GHBA, I wouldn’t know these people, I wouldn’t be as involved in industry legislation, and I certainly wouldn’t be receiving such recognition.
