Community Service Committee
The HBA’s tag line, “Building Better Communities Together,” has taken on new meaning in recent years. In addition to our organization’s important work in partnering with municipalities, agencies and each other to make the building industry better, the Community Service Committee has invested itself in making life a bit better for those less fortunate than our members. Since the Community Service Committee was taken under the wing of the SMC, that group has grown both in the number of members active in its programs and the causes that it serves.
