There's no better deal ... there's no better way to do business in today's market and economy.
A Strong Voice in Government
Few individual companies can make a difference in the system. However, working together, our members have a respected and powerful voice at all levels of government. Successful lobbying initiatives resulted in a variety of positive legislative, regulatory and policy changes or improvements. LHBA representatives meet regularly with the City of London and surrounding municipalities, giving us a pipeline to the mayor, planners, chief building officials and key department heads - people who impact strongly on your industry. We also meet regularly with local MPs and MPPs to ensure our local voice is heard Provincially and Federally.
Working from the Inside
Our committees and councils deal directly with the major issues facing your industry, giving you the opportunity to meet regularly with peers and have a real say in your industry's direction. Work with fellow members to explore emerging trends, gain advance notice of pending legislation, create fresh ideas and find solutions to current challenges. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our members received timely, relevant information which allowed them to run their businesses with the correct understanding of government regulations.
There is no better forum for networking, building relationships and gaining market intelligence - helping your business thrive.
Enhanced Public Image
Each year we issue dozens of news releases and information kits to maintain the LHBA's high public profile. Our extensive, ongoing media activity generates powerful coverage through print and broadcast media, which enhances the professional image of Association members.
The LHBA's high standards and credibility are powerful marketing tools. Our ongoing advertising and publicity campaigns, combined with the regular release of relevant consumer information brochures, urge consumers to look for the LHBA logo, whether they are buying a new home or looking for a contractor. Each year, our office receives hundreds of calls from the public to obtain referrals or verify membership. Consumers derive great comfort from the fact that LHBA members have a professional outlook and are willing to subscribe to our Code of Ethics.
