Dear Potential Member:

As president of the Hamilton-Halton Home Builders’ Association (HHHBA) I encourage companies working in our

industry to consider joining our association. Becoming a member of the HHHBA means you will have the support

of a network of your peers – who are also committed to excellence in the home construction business – and be

eligible for tangible competitive advantages.

We are the voice of the residential construction industry in Hamilton-Halton – advocating for the needs of our

members and the home-buying public. We also contribute our voice to the work done by the Canadian Home

Builders’ Association, which works to promote a strong and positive role for the nation’s home-building industry.

In addition to the advocacy work we do with municipal and provincial government, we provide ongoing

communications on industry trends through our newsletter, web site and special publications. We also offer

numerous professional development opportunities for our members and educational seminars for the general

public.

Membership benefits also include valuable discounts with supplier partners – including those providing office

supplies, insurance programs, cellular phone services and fuel.

Social programs provide valuable networking opportunities, and the association’s annual Awards of Distinction

enable members to compete for recognition in categories that honour excellence in design, craftsmanship,

marketing and customer service.

Being a member of the HHHBA means you can proudly display our corporate logo on all of your signage and

marketing materials, indicating to prospective home and condominium buyers that your company is among the

best in the local industry. Your company will also be listed in our membership directory and on our association’s

web site (

www.hhhba.ca

).

Please take a moment to review the materials in this membership package, and the process by which your

organization can join our association.

Thank you for considering membership in the HHHBA. We look forward to your involvement in our association

Sincerely,

Nando DeCaria

President
