About NVBIA

Now Celebrating 77 Years of Serving the Homebuilding  and Remodeling Community!

What is NVBIA?

The Northern Virginia Building Industry Association is committed to serving the housing industry in the Northern Virginia area. NVBIA was formed to create an economic and political climate within which the building industry is able to effectively meet the demand for affordable, attractive, safe, well-planned and environmentally sensitive residential and business communities

The Association was founded in 1936 by eight Arlington County Builders. Today, the NVBIA has expanded its membership and is now composed of five chapters: Fauquier, Fairfax, Loudoun and Prince William and Urban, which represents Arlington and Alexandria.

NVBIA’s primary mission is to represent the interest of its members at all levels of government. Recent important accomplishments include helping to defeat a proposed “fire prevention sprinkler” requirement for new homes and successfully working to pass a law designed to defer collection or acceptance of a cash proffer by a locality until after final inspection and before the property has been issued any certificate of occupancy. One of our most important ongoing projects in representing the industry is the effort, in conjunction with other HBAs, to impact the final EPA rules on drainage into the Chesapeake Bay.  (For the latest information on how we are representing you, go to the “Representing You” tab on the top menu bar and select “Hot News.”

Another important part of NVBIA’s mission is to provide networking opportunities for members. At formal and informal sessions members get together with others in the industry to learn about new products and services and pitch their own. Through regional dinners, lead-share breakfasts, cocktail hours and a variety of chapter functions, NVBIA members get an irreplaceable opportunity to do business with other members.

NVBIA also promotes professional development and recognition through seminars, workshops, and award programs. NVBIA conducts a full range of educational programs designed to help members achieve desired certifications, gain knowledge about hot new topics, or simply improve their business practices.

A further benefit to our members is the “Member Rewards” program. NVBIA members get large discounts on Goodyear Tires (as much as 45% off), Dell Computers, GM vehicles ($500 off their “best deal”), Staples, Hertz, Wyndham, and many others. Many members tell us the rewards they receive more than pay for their membership every single year. (For details on this great benefit, click on “Member Rewards” on the top menu bar.)

NVBIA is a 3-in-1 membership. Our members are also represented by HBAV: Home Builders Association of Virginia, and the NAHB: National Association of Home Builders, which concentrates on Capitol Hill and other federal agencies.
