Benefits of Joining the BIA
Membership value can mean different things to different members. For many, networking and new business development are at the top of the list of reasons to join. For others, there are reasons, both personally and professionally, that bring value to their membership.
The BIA provides various avenues for relationship building through events and council/committee involvement. Member companies are also listed in our online and printed membership directories.
Monthly general membership events bring together hundreds of representatives from companies in every corner of the building industry. Our events average 350 to 400 people each month. Builders, Developers and General Contractors; Engineers and Consultants; Subcontractors; Marketing Professionals; Vendors; Manufacturers and many others take advantage of the opportunity to build relationships in a friendly atmosphere over a cold drink. Explore potential new business opportunities at a BIA event once a month.

Support for the Industry
The stronger the BIA, the stronger the building industry, which often means more projects and jobs. When a company joins the local BIA of San Diego County, it also gains membership (at no additional cost) to the California Building Industry Association (CBIA) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). These memberships also support important initiatives at the national and state level that impact the local building industry.
Be a part of an Association that can offer personal and professional growth. Educational seminars, the annual Leadership Summit and the y|GEN Mentorship Program are just some ways BIA can help you grow.
Volunteering your time to support the industry directly supports the maximization of your membership return. We know through many testimonials that this is the best way to expand your network.
No matter your business category, BIA has a variety of specialized committees and councils that you can choose from based on your specific interest and expertise. There are dozens of ways you can help your industry and your business by volunteering at the BIA. This is also a great opportunity to meet and be known to other industry professionals.
