The Greater San Antonio Builders Association (GSABA) is an organization of professionals in the residential construction industry. GSABA is member-run, and designed to improve the businesses of its members by arranging networking events, providing a thorough continuing education program, communicating the latest policies and regulations in the industry, and representing the best interests of its members legislatively on local, state, and national levels.
Networking Events: Check theGSABA Calendar for a list of the upcoming events. At each event, Members have a chance to network with each other. Volunteering on Events Committees and attending events is a great way to meet potential customers.
Marketing Events: Through one-of-a-kind events such as the Spring Tour of Homes, the Parade of Homes™, and the Builders Showcase Expo, Members gain opportunities to advertise to the consumer.
Insurance: Save substantial money on your insurance needs with your membership to GSABA. From Health to Supplemental to General Liability, your membership will gain you access to insurance programs that are easy to apply to, offer actual savings, and have a large selection of doctors and providers.

Education: The University of Housing at San Antonio is the continuing education program that was produced by the National Association of Home Builders for use by local home builders associations around the United States. Taking these courses earns Members credits towards a special designation, such as Certified Graduate Associate, Certified Sales Professional, or Graduate Master Builder, among others.
Communication: Updates to legislation, notices about regulatory agencies, changes to building codes, and countless other valuable announcements are sent to our members via fax, email, post, and our monthly newsletter, The Builder Brief.
Government Affairs: GSABA has dedicated countless resources to lobbying, tracking the activities of local policy makers, monitoring local regulatory agencies, developing relationships with local officials, and organizing pro-active industry activities that positively affect the San Antonio homebuilding climate. Keeping homebuilding on the minds of local lawmakers will insure that our industry, which contributes substantially to the local economy, is protected and regulated smartly, not broadly.

I run a better building company as a result of my involvement with the Greater San Antonio Builders Association. I have also met the companies that help me build a better home - approximately 95% of my suppliers and subcontractors are GSABA members."
-Ed Hall, Elegance in Design Custom Homes
"I have been a member and actively involved with GSABA for seven years. Because of the networking opportunities available to me, I have continued to grow my business. My involvement has been good for me, about 95% of my business comes from GSABA members."
-Albert Hernandez, Superior Exterior
“Gaining valuable business contacts is an added bonus. I have kept my membership and stayed active for over 14 years because it is important to me to support the industry that supports my family.”
-Karen Montgomery, Whitaker Insurance Associates
"I have kept my membership to the Greater San Antonio Builders Association since 1982, because I believe it is important for us to have a strong voice in our industry. I also notice that the more I give back to the Association of my time and resources, the more I feel I am contributing to our industry, rather than just taking."
-Jack Uptmore, Uptmore Custom Homes
"I have been a member of the Greater San Antonio Builders Association for 8 years. During those years, I have cultivated builder relationships that make up about 80% of my business. Because of my involvement with GSABA, I never have to make a cold call."
-Jana Ward, Clear Choice Flooring & Design
"Throughout my 10 years as a member of the Greater San Antonio Builders Association, I have developed a "Do Business with Members" policy at my office. It would be impossible to measure how valuable the networking opportunities have been in finding worthwhile subcontractors and suppliers that help me build my homes. Keeping my membership with GSABA helps me maintain these contacts, all the while supporting the organization that supports my industry."
