The Power of Membership: BIA of Central Ohio and Treplus Communities
Guest blog submitted by Treplus Communites
Treplus Communities is Redefining 55+ Living in central Ohio and is a proud member of the BIA of Central Ohio in building a unified, collective voice to drive meaningful change for the industry. As a niche segment of multi-family homebuilders, we benefit from the power of membership in many ways:
As a developer, Treplus Communities relies on BIA advocacy with municipalities to educate planners on issues around housing needs and development. This involvement is instrumental to gaining entitlements and reducing roadblocks and delays to community development. Additionally, the BIA advocates for all who face shortages of materials and, more importantly, skilled labor.
As a BIA member, the Builders and Developer’s Council has proven to be an excellent resource for our development efforts – it give us the opportunity to gather and share intelligence on land opportunities with other members who may be looking for partners or land. A win-win for everyone involved!
In addition to market and legal developments for the building industry, the Central Ohio BIA is an excellent resource for technical support and knowledge through live and broadcast events, networking events, and publications.
Events and Networking.
Collaborations and referral business opportunities develop at BIA-hosted networking events like Kickstart 2020 and BIG night with industry professionals. As a participant in the BIA Spring and Fall Tour of Homes, we found power in our membership in helping us welcome new residents to our vibrant, active adult communities that are a new product in the region.
Promoting Good News.
“We are all in this together” has always been applicable to the building industry and it is even more relevant amidst times of crisis. When there is industry or member news to share, the BIA stands out and delivers it.
The power of membership is in being engaged and taking full advantage of the opportunities offered by the BIA every single day. Treplus Communities believes in the power of membership!
Now, that is power!
