We believe that builders and homeowners should have the resources they need and the rights they deserve to achieve their dreams. Founded in 1947, the Wisconsin Builders Association is made up of 21 local associations throughout Wisconsin, and represents, at the level of the state legislature, the interests of more than 4,000 members involved in the home building industry.
From residential and light commercial contractors, developers, and remodelers, to subcontractors, suppliers, manufacturers, lenders, and others associated with the industry at large, we make it our business to make sure our members' voices are heard at the state level, saving builders and homeowners tens of thousands each year in improved laws and regulations. Our 3-in-1 membership structure also includes local and national (NAHB) representation, allowing our members to effect change in their own communities and beyond.
We're celebrating 70 years of Protecting the American Dream! Learn about our history here.
