Committees and Councils

OHBA Standing Committees

OHBA is an active association comprised of an Executive Committee, Board of Directors, committees and councils. OHBA employs staff, but the backbone of the association comes from its members and volunteers. It has been said that an association is only as good as its volunteers. OHBA is Ontario home builders’ association and one way to get involved and be part of the decisions being made is to sit on one of OHBA’s standing committees.

The various standing committees each have different mandates and objectives, but they have all been established to serve our membership as specific needs were identified. Every OHBA member is invited to join and participate on any of the following committees.

To learn more, please contact one of the committee chairs.
