Welcome to Johnson City Area Home Builders Association (JCAHBA)!
We want to welcome you to our website and thank you for thinking HBA first. JCAHBA is a non-profit trade association that represents and promotes responsible development of quality neighborhoods which encourages the American Dream of Home Ownership. Our members are in the home building, remodeling, multifamily construction, design, housing, finance, building products and other aspects of residential and light commercial construction.
As an association, our goal is to be a trusted resource for the community and an advocate for the building industry. We provide educational programs to keep our members up-to-date on the latest building practices and construction techniques and we provide them the opportunity to network with the most knowledgeable and respected industry professionals in the country. As an affiliate of the Home Builders Association of Tennessee (HBAT) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), we take full advantage of the support, resources benefits and programs they provide and encourage our members to utilize the services offered to them exclusively by being members of the HBA.
To help showcase the skills, abilities, products, and services that our members offer, we work with Derby Publishing Group to produce our annual Builders’ Brand Magazine. Printed copies are distributed through the JCAHBA office, the local Chamber of Commerce, the Jonesborough Visitor’s Center, and at area banks.
Realizing that vocational programs at our local high schools are a critical pipeline to grow a talent pool for the building industry, we attempt to close the skilled labor gap by holding an annual “Battle of the Build” competition. Several high schools are involved and begin planning and building their projects as soon as school begins in August. During the one-day competition held at Northeast State Community College’s Technical Education Complex in December, Senior Officers of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) and the Home Builders Association of Tennessee (HBAT) are brought in to inspect, judge, and meet with the students and instructors. Students can win awards and raise money for their school CTE programs.
