OHBA Standing Councils
OHBA is an active association comprised of our Board of Directors 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 members and one way to get involved is to sit on one of OHBA’s standing councils and be part of important decisions being made in the residential construction industry.
The various standing councils each have different mandates and objectives, but they have all been established to serve our membership and specific needs for all our HBA’s. Every OHBA member is invited to join and participate on any of the following councils.
