David Ellis with the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association is this week’s guest on the award-winning Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio show. David shares everything that is going on with the builders association, and his interview is followed by a discussion with Dale DeSena of Taste Atlanta.

David Ellis is the Executive Vice President of the Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association (HBA). David has worked with local HBAs for many years, and in his current role he works as the association’s director with a focus on meeting the needs of the HBA’s members.

The Greater Atlanta HBA is the Greater Atlanta area’s sustaining resource for the housing and construction industry. From classes on marketing and OSHA to advocacy work to networking, there are many ways you can get involved with or benefit from the HBA. One of the association’s newest councils that members can get involved with is the Professional Women in Building Council, which has grown to be the largest in the nation in just one year. And, when it comes to members events, the Greater Atlanta HBA will celebrate the best in the industry at their largest event of the year, the 33rd OBIE Awards on November 2.
