Presidents Message

Dear HBA Members,

I’ve enjoyed this past year serving as your HBA president and look forward to even more meaningful events and projects in 2023. Last year we hosted a new successful Best in PA Living Awards program and simultaneously launched a consumer marketing project to promote our star projects to the community. Look for additional developments on both of these exciting projects in the coming months. If you have not checked out the new pages yet, please visit  and to learn more.

Protecting the American dream of homeownership continues to be at the center of what we do. We are challenging our builders to be engaged in our association and to commit to working with members when possible. My hope is that everyone takes full advantage of the many benefits and opportunities this association provides. To make the most of your investment, consider joining one of our committees. To get involved in the Associate Council, Membership Committee, Industry Action Committee, Sales and Marketing Council, or our Political Action Committee, contact

Community service continues to be a priority for our organization. We are working with the Salvation Army to provide monthly meals to those in need. Additional projects such as the coat drive, toy collection and more will be added throughout the year. To sign up and contribute, please look for links in the weekly update.

Finally, I urge you all to also consider the importance of the local elections that impact us the most as an association.  The implications affect builders and associates alike. Our board members meet with officials from both parties to keep an open dialogue on the major concerns that affect the building industry. With this in mind, we ask that everyone consider donating to our Voice of Housing Political Action Committee. For more details, contact the HBA office at 610-692-7733 or visit

On behalf of our executive team and board members, thank you for your support of the HBA and let’s work together for a prosperous 2023.

2023 HBA President
