The California Building Industry Association (CBIA) is focused on providing strong leadership through advocacy, education and information. Your membership in CBIA is an effective way to strengthen your business, build new relationships, influence California’s legislative and regulatory environment and stay on top of critical news, developments and information that can help move your organization forward.
As the premier advocate for California’s homebuilding industry, we remain focused on our number one priority – successfully promoting housing’s interests on many fronts in the State Capitol:

  • State Senate and Assembly
  • Governor’s Office
  • Energy Commission
  • Department of Housing and Community Development
  • Department of Water Resources
  • Public Utilities Commission
  • Air Resources Board
  • Environmental Protection Agency
  • Building Standards Commission
  • And numerous other state agencies

CBIA fights to ensure homebuilding can operate in a marketplace free of excessive regulation, helping to spur the development of new homes, neighborhoods and communities.

As the voice of the California housing industry, our success is not possible without the active engagement of our members. In order to achieve representation from various stakeholders, CBIA has developed the Primary and Partner Membership levels.

These new membership opportunities offer incentives that afford enhanced association benefits for locally focused builders, developers and associate members.
