Associates: The heart of GHBA
The Associate Council is made up of vendors, suppliers, trades, Realtors™, mortgage lenders and more. Making up about 50% of the membership, associates are the heart of GHBA. There is a place for everyone in the Associate Council.
Monthly luncheons provide valuable opportunities to network with peers, develop relationships with potential clients, share ideas and contribute your expertise. Fun networking events, tournaments and charitable projects hosted by the Associate Council provide direct access to your target audience—the builder/remodeler community.
The Associate Council meets the first Thursday of each month at the GHBA offices at 11:30 a.m. (No meeting in July, November or December.)
Luncheons typically feature a “builder speaker” who will discuss topics such as, “How to Market to Builders,” “The Right and Wrong Way to Make Sales Calls,” and other tips for interacting with builder/remodeler members.
A raffle drawing is held at each meeting, and the winner gets their picture with the speaker in Houston Builder magazine and will be invited to an exclusive end of the year party along with the other drawing winners and all of the guest speakers for the year.
All GHBA members are invited to attend. Registration is required.
