In 2018 CBIA was proud to celebrate 75 years of industry advocacy, progress and milestones. Since 1943, CBIA has become one of the strongest voices in the building industry in California, growing to 9 regional affiliate offices complete with legislative, technical, communications and membership departments.
“Throughout the ups and downs of the California home and building industry, CBIA has remained a constant force in government advocacy to ensure homebuilders continue to have opportunities to build communities,” said CBIA President and CEO Dan Dunmoyer. “The building industry plays a significant role in California’s economic strength and our efforts have helped pull the state out of a tough position. It is our goal to celebrate this and other accomplishments over the last 75 years and to look forward to CBIA’s future.”
Recent CBIA achievements include securing $150 million new homebuyer tax credits during the great recession to help California homebuilders sell new homes and launching a coordinated strategic effort to pass a critically needed $9 billion statewide school bond on the November 2016 ballot.
“Our mission is to provide our members with a seat at the table in California government, advocating for them in order to alleviate the red tape that impedes progress,” said Dunmoyer. “We are committed to further action and advocacy for our members for the next 75 years and beyond. As we often say, we were built for this.”
