 Message from the President



Welcome to the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky.  For 59 years we have been the building industry resource for our community.  Working through advocacy, communication, education and political action the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky is an outstanding resource for the consumer as well as those in the Industry. 

We continue to strive for a higher standard in the industry with our Registered Builder and Remodeler program.  With insurance, warranty, onsite inspection and continuing education standards you can have peace of mind knowing that when you hire a Registered Builder or Remodeler you are dealing with a professional.

We work to connect members with their customers.  Our annual consumer shows of Homefest, Cavalcade of Homes and the Tour of Remodeled Homes allow the public the opportunity to check out the latest styles and designs at a variety of price points.  Our various Business to Business events such as Table Top Night, annual Golf and Associates Outings, Florence Freedom Game, Sales and Marketing Awards, Builder Realtor Bash, and our Inaugural and Holiday Party allow suppliers to show off their offerings to builders and remodelers as well as other business professionals throughout the association. 

We advocate for affordable housing and consumer protection.  On a local level we work through our State and Local Government Committee, Building and Housing Codes Committee and our Land Development Council.  We participate on a state wide level with our state association and annual “Builders Day at the Capital” in Frankfort.  We work on a National level through the lobbying efforts of The National Association of Home Builders and speak directly to our Senators and Representatives, federal agencies and the administration, not only at home, but in their offices in Washington D.C. as well.

Lastly we educate.  In addition to educating today’s professionals on new designs, products and trends we also educate the professionals of tomorrow though our Enzweiler Apprentice Training Program.  Here men and women of all ages can learn the trades of Carpentry, Electric, Plumbing, Welding, HVAC and Maintenance & Remodeling.  With a job placement rating of over 95% there is no doubt we are training the workforce of tomorrow.

Today The Home Builders Association continues its mission through the hard work and dedication of its staff and members.  We must work together to share the successes of our association with others.  Encourage others you know to get involved.  Invite someone new to a show, committee meeting or event.  Come see why the Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky is the place to be!
