2019 All-Star Membership Drive Hits It Out Of the Park

The 2019 All Star Teams swung for the fences and brought it home, bringing in 84 new members during April’s membership challenge.

“We are proud of our challenge results this year, but we are most excited about our new members gaining the opportunity to start experiencing all the many benefits of partnering with the Home Builders Association of Greater Austin,” said Membership Committee VP Chad Durham of David Weekley Homes. “Our significant membership growth this year puts the HBA in a great position to better accomplish our mission, which is to advance the practice and professionalism of the home building industry in our community. We are thrilled about the future positive impact we will make.”
