The HBA Builder Requirements were set forth in 2017. The purpose of these requirements are to set HBA Builders a step above the rest as well as creating a better connection with the HBA through increased participation. The HBA of Greater Springfield committed to promoting HBA members through TV commercials, PSAs, social media and video blogs. The messages focus on how to find HBA members and why using an HBA member matters. In 2017 HBA Board of Directors adopted a new policy concerning builder members. In order to be an HBA builder member in good standing, builders must attend:
- one Builder Round Table
- one HBA Membership Event and
- one HBA Educational Event during the calendar year.
