Government Affairs Representation
The HBA of Greater Cincinnati coordinates closely with government officials, county officials and city/township officials to ensure policies and regulations are "industry-friendly". The HBA works closely with federal, state, and local elected officials on issues that impact our industry. Building a positive relationship with our elected officials is an absolute must in this business: doing so can produce a more favorable environment in which to conduct your business.
The HBA publishes Where We Stand: A summary of public policy positions annually.
Through a donation to the HBA Build-PAC, a member supports candidates who support housing industry issues in upcoming elections. A case statement is available highlighting the reasons to support Build-PAC.
