A single win can save builders thousands of dollars on every home they build.
Likewise, a single loss can cost builders thousands of dollars on every home they build.
We are your voice! The West TN Home Builders Association advocates tirelessly to ensure that the regulatory environment in the 21 counties we represent encourages growth and development and doesn’t restrict it. Through our Political Action Committee, we help elect political leaders who understand housings' critical role in our economy and the home building industry's role in providing shelter for all families.
We are your voice at the state and national levels. We collaborate closely with the Home Builders Association of Tennessee and the National Association of Home Builders to ensure that your ability to operate your business, employ people, and make a profit isn’t hindered by burdensome state and federal regulations.
We are your voice at the local level, as well. Our Government Affairs Committee works closely with the municipal and county leaders to provide input into decisions that affect our industry. The committee monitors public policy issues that have an impact on the livelihood of our members. These issues may take the form of, but are certainly not limited to the following:
- Amendments to unified development ordinances
- Amendments to land development ordinances
- Building code interpretations and changes
- Permit fee increases
- Water and sewer restrictions
- Anti and slow growth legislation
- Housing affordability
- Impact fees and transfer taxes
Our Governmental Affairs Committee meets monthly to discuss issues. Then, they explore the best ways to advocate on these issues effectively. As a result, they help ensure that the regulatory environment in West Tennessee encourages growth and development and doesn't restrict it. If you have a passion for Public Policy, then consider joining our Government Affairs Committee.
The only thing equally as crucial as our Government Affairs work is the work of our Political Action Committee. So each year, we raise thousands of dollars through BuildPAC. We then use these funds to support and help elect candidates that understand our industry and will be advocates for it once they are elected.
