I'm Kim Crawford the Executive Officer for the Home Builders Association of Hickory - Catawba Valley. People ask me all the time, "Why should I join the Home Builders Association?" I say, "Why not?" We are a non-profit trade organization here to provide resources, information, and education to our membership and consumers interested in home ownership, building, remodeling, maintenance and repair. For over 50 years the HBA has been a member driven association with highly ethical and professional standards among our members. We help maintain a positive image for the industry and association within the community. Promote home ownership and affordable housing.
