Three Tiered Membership
Chatham-Kent Home Builders Association is a mark of distinction which identifies the company as an industry professional. CKHBA represents over 95 members comprised of the residential construction industry in Chatham-Kent. With membership in our local association, members also benefit from membership in the Ontario Home Builders’ Association (OHBA) and the Canadian Home Builders’ Association (CHBA).
Together our voice at the municipal, provincial, and federal level is very strong. Representatives at all three levels of the association interact regularly with elected officials and bureaucrats ensuring that when decisions are made, those making them are informed.
The ABC’s of Joining CKHBA Advocacy
CKHBA actively participates through a number of municipal liaison committees organized to represent the interests of the Association related to building and development issues within our region. CKHBA also coordinates its advocacy efforts with CHBA, OHBA and other Home Builders’ Associations. Monthly reports are provided to members through a newsletter entitled “Advocacy in Action”.
Across our region, consumers, business people and elected officials recognize CKHBA’s logo as the sign of professionals. Members let people know that their company has the knowledge, experience, and commitment it takes to succeed in this industry. Members are encouraged to use CKHBA’s logo in marketing materials as a sign of their commitment and professionalism. CKHBA also has a major web presence with the website www.ckhba.ca as well as social media outlets such as Facebook & Twitter. Our social media platforms are designed to help our members gain brand recognition to Chatham-Kent as well as surrounding areas.
