The Greater Fort Worth Builders Association, along with TAB and NAHB, is working to provide members with up-to-date information regarding the COVID-19 virus. Information is rapidly developing and changing. We have created a list of documents and links that may be helpful as we navigate through this difficult time together.
Welcome to the Greater Fort Worth Builders Association
The Greater Fort Worth Builders Association (GFWBA) is a non-profit trade association representing hundreds of companies affiliated within the homebuilding industry throughout the Greater Fort Worth region. The Greater Fort Worth Builders Association is one of twenty-eight local associations that make up the Texas Association of Builders (TAB). in addition, we are affiliated with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB). An active board of directors and volunteer committees, made up of leaders from local builders, trade contractors and businesses associated within the real estate industry, lead the Greater Fort Worth Builders Association in its mission.
Mission Statement & Guiding Principles
Our primary purposes are to provide information exchange, communication and education for members; to interact with local, state and federal legislative bodies to foster a positive building climate; to provide a forum to implement policies that affect the building industry; and to promote professionalism among our members.
Mike Garabedian, GFWBA President
A new year means a fresh start. I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season.
We are excited to have events for our members to participate with one another in the coming months. Our Market Forecast event will be on February 10, 2021. We are excited as this will be one of the first presentations with the most recent data including the big 4th quarter 2020. We encourage all our members to join us for this important presentation on what to expect for the 2021 home building market.
We are excited to welcome the Certified Master Builder program in its return to the GFWBA. Over the coming months we will be reconnecting their program with the GFWBA and welcome their members to our membership. If you are builder or remodeler who would like to be certified, please visit the website www.CertifiedMasterBuilder.com for details.
Lather up your hand sanitizer and get ready, real life in person events are returning soon. Watch your email for registration for these upcoming events.
The GFWBA Golf Tournament Presented by First National Bank on April 8, 2021. This will be a REAL LIVE event. It will be a no zoom zone. So limber up those swings and come help us fill wall the ponds with golf balls.
Our Associates Council will be having their Poker Night benefiting Operation Finally Home on May 6, 2021. This will be a REAL LIVE event. It will be a no zoom zone. So if you are healthy and ready to lose your money get signed up.
Please also watch for updates on Rally Day. It is important we stay engaged with our state legislature and government leaders. Our well nurtured relationships are why we were all working last year during the pandemic. I don’t know what challenges lie ahead for our industry but I am certain that having conversations and engagement with leadership in Austin is important to all of us. I encourage all our members to participate with us at Rally Day.
I want to wish everyone a great week and look forward to a wonderful 2021.
