Dear Members,
Shannon Coker

Advocacy is one of the main objectives of the Home Builders Association of Mississippi.

Through establishing and building relationships,  HBAM educates state and national legislators on the importance of the housing industry and protects legislative interests.

During the 2017 legislative session, the Home Builders Association of Mississippi will continue their advocacy efforts to promote, advance and protect the housing industry.

HBAM will be sending out legislative newsletters every Friday to update everyone. We are also working to implement a new grassroots system to connect our members with their legislators on important issues.

For more information regarding advocacy, please feel free to contact me.
