Presidents Message

Dear HBA Members,

It is an honor to be the new President of the HBA of Chester and Delaware Counties and I appreciate being given this opportunity to serve you. I would like to thank all those that have served before me and I am excited to keep striving to make this organization great.

Our industry and our Association have gone through some peaks and valleys throughout the years and I am hopeful that we are starting to climb the next peak as we head into 2017. There are issues that we all deal with on a daily basis and the HBA is a tool that we can all use to make our businesses better.  Just like a tool that our guys use in the field every day, the HBA can be used to help you gain more customers, find great subcontractors and suppliers, and run your business more efficiently. Within our membership we have vast expertise in every aspect of our industry and it is accessible to all of us. I have always been proudest that, as competitors within our businesses, members can pick up the phone and discuss issues and help each other. There is a mutual respect between our members that allows us to better our individual businesses and better our industry by working together.

Together our voices are heard on the State level as we constantly battle legislative issues that threaten us all. As an organization we need to fight for the rights of our clients and their right to affordable housing. The work that is being done to keep our presence felt from our State Legislators is of vital importance and we will continue this work through the year.

As we head into 2017, I encourage all members to become active within the HBA. This Association can reach its full potential only if its members help to get it there. There are numerous committees that you can join and make a real difference. Interested in getting involved? Contact for more details. There has been a great effort to promote and grow our membership through the last year and we are really starting to gain numbers of new Builders and Associates. As our numbers grow we also need to look to get these new members involved. I am hopeful that with our growth we will also see fresh faces starting to become very active. It is by becoming active that you will realize what this Association really is about and what it can do for you and your business.

I am looking forward to a great year working with all of you.

Very truly yours,

Scott Megill

HBA President 2017

Now it is more important than ever to stay connected and stay together and support our industry. Also, smart marketing, information, general advice and peer support are for every one of us and HBA has a lot to offer in these areas.
