The Home Builders Association of Georgia (HBAG) held its annual Legislative Reception at The Freight Depot in Atlanta. Each winter, this event provides an opportunity for HBAG’s 12,800 statewide members to meet at the Capital and discuss industry-related issues with their local and state representatives.

Associated General Contractor Mark Woodall was among some of the local contractors attending the event. Woodall, along with past HBAG president, Bob Barnard of Barnard & Associates Remodeling out of Fayetteville, GA were able to meet with Senator Mitch Seabaugh and Senator Chip Rogers, Government Affairs Director for the Georgia Branch, asking very direct questions of their governing legislators.

“This meeting with our local legislators couldn’t have come at a better time for our builders and contractors,” stated Sandy Boda, Executive Officer of the Home Builders Association of Midwest Georgia. “Getting information and having discussions directly with our legislators is especially important as our building industry is again picking up steam.”

The Home Builders Association of Georgia is part of a three-tiered federation of organizations who share a common mission: to serve the housing industry and provide expanding opportunities for all consumers to have safe, decent and affordable housing.

Among the largest 100 Home Builders Associations in America, the HBA of Midwest Georgia serves over 700 members in Fayette, Coweta, Spalding, Meriwether, Heard, Pike, Upson, Lamar, Butts and Jasper Counties. For information on the association, call Executive Officer Sandy Boda at 770-716-7109.
