WEST END HBA WINS THE CANADIAN HOME BUILDERS’ ASSOCIATION HBA OF THE YEAR AWARD.

WE HBA now holds the Provincial and National top honours for local Home Builders’ Associations.

Hamilton, June 16, 2020 – The West End Home Builders’ Association received the HBA of the Year Award at the Canadian Home Builders’ Association Leadership Awards which took place virtually last Friday, June 12th. The WE HBA Members, Board of Directors and Staff are honoured to receive this significant industry recognition, which is an acknowledgement of all the hard work, ground-breaking changes and strategic initiatives put in place over the past year. The award recognizes overall excellence by an HBA for the 2019 year, in delivering a strong and positive voice for the home building industry, and in supporting the business successes of members and their ability to provide affordability, quality and choice in housing for consumers.

In 2019, the West End Home Builders’ Association finalized and approved a new Strategic Plan to guide the Association from 2019 to 2022 and developed a brand-new formal Operational Plan. The rapid growth of the Association called for organizational changes with a special focus on the maintenance of high quality of services. The development of Membership Strategies for 2019 and 2020 allowed the Association to focus on bettering the membership experience and increasing value for our members. With more than 15% membership growth, WE HBA continued and strengthened its long-standing role as an advocate for both Industry Professionals and existing and future homeowners. 

“We are both very honoured and humbled to receive this prestigious recognition. I am so blessed to be the President of the West End Home Builders’ Association that is currently the top local HBA in both Ontario and in Canada. We’ve got an all star staff, group of members and Board of Directors,” says Robert Molinaro, WE HBA President.

In 2019, our Association embarked on a rebranding initiative and approved a new name and logo that better reflects the changing needs and growth of both the Association and the home building industry. WE HBA is also the first local Home Builders’ Association to establish a Women in Industry (WIN) Committee, to advance the level of support for women of all ages choosing to work in non-traditional roles.
