Membership

The Greater Brazos Valley Builders Association (formerly named the Bryan-College Station Home Builders Association) invites you to become a part of our organization. Whether you are a builder, a supplier of goods or services to those in the building industry. We are a local professional trade organization formed in 1967 to promote and protect the building industry and its customers in our 6 county jurisdiction. The GBVBA’s jurisdiction include Brazos, Burleson, Leon, Grimes, Madison, Robertson, Walker, and Washington Counties.  Our fundamental challenge involves the responsibility to build affordable, well-designed, quality housing in the community. Our larger aim is that of helping each resident to have a suitable environment in which to live, work, and raise a family. With these objectives we strive to maintain positive relations with city and county government and other trade, professional, and community interest groups. We are sought out for advice and eagerly provide input on issues related to our charter. Since we are an affiliated local association of both the Texas Association of Builders (TAB) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), we are also involved in matters at the state and national levels GBVBA has grown throughout the years and now has over 275 companies (approximately 120 builders and 155 associates) as members, since inception. We feel that much of this interest is generated as a result of not only our Association’s basic objectives, but also due to our numerous services and activities for the membership.
