The Greater Atlanta Home Builders Association was proud to re-introduce its county chapter system in 2018. The localized chapter system breaks our larger metro Atlanta are down into smaller geographic regions, allowing members to enjoy hyper-local networking and educational opportunities, as well as socials and community service projects throughout the year. Attendance at chapter events is a great way to stay up-to-date on specific issues or subjects that are relevant to the local city or county in which you work or reside.
If you’re in the homebuilding industry in Atlanta, mark your calendars now for the dates of the many upcoming chapter events. Covering a nine-county area, as well as the City of Atlanta, there’s sure to be a subject or location pertinent to you and your business.
