The Latin Builders Association® is the largest Hispanic construction association in the U.S.
How do we get a professional looking web site for our very limited budget? Can we get a website that our own in-house staff can be trained to effectively manage and update? What kind of existing off-the-shelf technologies should we utilize when communicating with our membership about news, events and updates? Can we add elements such as video and audio to our new web site? What kind of e mail platform is the most cost effective and reliable for our organization?
The LBA is a Networking, Education & Knowledge Sharing Organization
The Latin Builders Association is a networking, education, and knowledge sharing organization for builders, developers, contractors, architects, engineers, plumbers, electricians and tradesmen associated with the business of construction in South Florida. Since its establishment in 1971 by a group of local subcontractors, LBA has strived to provide a vital forum for discussion, networking, training / development, and representation at the local and state level for all key players of the construction industry.
A prominent organization, LBA has welcomed numerous guests to speak at well publicized member events. These guests, both from within the construction industry and outside of it, reflect LBA’s influence in the region. On January 27, the LBA welcomed several GOP frontrunners at an event in Miami just days before the Florida Republican Primary.
Today, it is the largest Hispanic construction association in the United States, with over 650 member companies representing every aspect of South Florida’s vibrant construction industry and most of the area’s related business concerns. The LBA’s core goal is to represent and further the interests of the South Florida Community, the local building industry, and the individuals and companies that strive day after day to make South Florida a better place to live, work and play.
