Chartered in 1957, the Athens Area Home Builders Association is a non-profit professional trade association made up of member companies, representing residential and light commercial builders, subcontractors, suppliers, and many other service providers to the building industry throughout Athens-Clarke, Elbert, Franklin, Hart, Madison, Oconee, Oglethorpe, and Stephens Counties. Together we are the foundation for the local home-building industry - building pride in our community through interaction, commitment, professionalism, education, community service, and environmental responsibility. We are proud to add value by offering a 3 in 1 Builder/Associate membership, all for just $565.00 per year. Our dues include membership in the Athens Area Home Builders Association (AAHBA), the Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG), and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). We also offer an Affiliate Membership for $280.00, which is for employees of current members, either Builder or Associates. Affiliate membership is offered at a reduced rate and includes all of the same benefits as a Builder or Associate member with the exception of being allowed to serve on the Board of Directors. Your cost of membership is easily recouped through our great member benefits. Show your industry support and join the association that supports your industry. Membership dues are non-refundable once submitted and approved.
