Membership

OPPORTUNITIES


The Home Builders Association of Lincoln (HBAL) promotes the home building and remodeling industries in Lincoln, Nebraska. Since our incorporation in 1951, our membership has grown to almost 600 member companies.

HBAL provides numerous opportunities for members to build their business through networking events, educational seminars and charitable activities.

The Lincoln Home Builders Care Foundation's mission is to support the educational and charitable activities of HBAL. It was established in 2009 as a 501(c)(3) charitable, non-profit organization.

Membership in HBAL gives you a voice in government on the state and local level through its political action committee called HOMEPAC. Financial contributions from members ensure HOMEPAC has adequate funds to contribute to the candidates who understand the true importance of housing in Lincoln and Nebraska. 2 | HBAL Membership Opportunities


HBAL MEMBER MORE THAN JUST A

When you join HBAL, your dues are more than just membership in the organization. The Home Builders Association of Lincoln provides opportunities to network and learn through member events, meetings, social hours and educational classes. HBAL's volunteer leadership and staff also do extensive behind the scenes work with government officials at the State and Local levels helping to decrease regulation and control housing costs. For example, in 2020, members worked with the City Council on local amendments to the 2018 International Energy Conservation Code, with several amendments adopted by the City Council. In 2021, Lincoln Electric System met with HBAL members about their proposed change to require conduit to supply power to homes. After months of work and studying the proposed changes, it was determined the current process of power supply worked best. We also had several members provide input to the Planning Department as they changed zoning code to benefit affordable housing. MICHAELA SCHWARTEN We appreciate all the dedicated members of HBAL who assist in these endeavors. Executive Vice President

Working through HBAL to impact public policy that affects our industry is personally rewarding and provides value to the home building industry and our HBAL members.
