Your VOTE Matters!
One of the most important benefits of HBA Membership is Advocacy. The Home Builders Association of Greater Austin is your voice and advocates at the City, County and State levels. We work tirelessly to ensure that the regulatory environment in the greater Austin area encourages growth and development.
Our political action committee, HomePAC, is an important weapon in our advocacy arsenal. The HomePAC Board is comprised of an outstanding group of industry leaders selected to make decisions on how and when to focus the industry’s political resources to ensure a favorable housing and political environment for builders in the Greater Austin area. Home PAC’s purpose is to raise money as well as contribute to issue and candidate campaigns supportive of the housing industry. With increasing rules and regulations being imposed by all levels of government, the HBA needs the political clout to make a difference in the election process.
While much of the focus has been placed on the federal elections, it’s important to remember that the decisions that most affect your business are made locally at the city and county levels. After interviewing and vetting over 75 candidates, HomePAC has issued endorsements for the upcoming elections. If your profession factors into your decision at the ballot box, these are the candidates that will support are our industry. Note that the endorsement slate includes elections from the May 2020 election that were pushed back to November 3rd.
