Associates: Applies to all subcontractors, material suppliers, designers, architects, Realtors, etc. Dues are $615.00 annually for Associate members who are joining the HBADOC for the first time and for annual renewals.
Affiliates: Once a Builder or Associate membership has been established, employees of the same company may sign up under them as Affiliate members. Affiliates receive all of the benefits of the full Builder/Associate membership. Dues for new and renewing Affiliates are $125.00 annually. Please note - you cannot join as an Affiliate member if your company does not currently have a Builder or Associate member signed up with us.
