COHBA Works for You

This is a difficult time for everyone’s business. We are all struggling to hold things together in a difficult economic climate with uncertainty around every corner.

Despite the difficulties we all face, our association has never been a more effective advocate for our industry locally, statewide and at the national level.

We can’t continue this work without your help.

The rewards of building the houses and communities that people call home are immeasurable, but challenging. COHBA resources can help you build a better product, build a better business, and work in a more positive business environment.

First, please renew your membership. Doing this creates a sense of community – and that’s what we are. We are a team of like-minded individuals with a common vision. By everyone renewing their membership, it creates bridges and connections to other members you maybe would’ve not otherwise considered.

Second, recruit a new member. By doing this, everyone gets a chance to be a part of something greater.

 

 

 

 

Top 6 Reasons to renew that benefit YOU:

  1. Representation
    Your membership in COHBA gives you a seat at the table for local, state, and national policy discussions. Your membership adds to our collective voice on issues important to our industry.
  2. Insurance
    Both Builder and Associate members qualify for special discounts on insurance policies like Workers Comp, General Liability, and Builders Risk. Our members also have access to group health coverage through the National Association of Home Builders. For more information, call Rusty Appleton at (405) 843-1508 or email at rusty@cohba.org.

  4. Networking Opportunities
