Founded in 1977, the St. Tammany Home Builders Association (STHBA) now has over 600 members. Over one third of the members are home builders and the remainder are associates connected in some way to the home building industry, including suppliers, subcontractors, mortgage lenders, and real estate professionals. Upon joining the STHBA, a new member becomes a member of the Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). The NAHB is a federation of over 800 state and local home builders associations with over 160,000 members.
The STHBA offers educational seminars for its members in areas such as consumer preferences, marketing, finance, and industry regulations and legislation. They also participate in the community sponsoring charity events and making donations to local charities and organizations. The STHBA works closely with LHBA, NAHB, and governmental agencies to improve the political climate for the home building industry, promoting policies that provide opportunities for all Americans to have safe, decent and affordable housing.
The St. Tammany HBA is a non-profit organization not associated with any governmental organization. Our service area includes all of St. Tammany Parish and Washington Parish. The association employs a professional staff that provides day-to-day management of the association.
