Build a Better Christmas is a program funded by the Home Builders Foundation. Throughout the year, the Foundation receives donations from KBA members and friends intended for this annual program. With these funds, our volunteer shoppers go out and purchase Christmas gifts for the women and children, some as young as 3 months old, who live in the YWCA Alive Shelter during the holidays. Build a Better Christmas helps alleviate stress for these families and provides a good dose of Christmas cheer. This is a wonderful program and a great way to lend a helping hand to those in need during the holidays. We welcome and encourage any KBA members to participate, learn more about the program, and volunteer!

For our members in the land development industry (developers, real estate investors, engineers, land use attorneys, etc) the Developer’s Council is a long-standing, regular meeting of development professionals. Many of the successes the KBA has had on Kitsap area code-related concerns have been through the study and work of this group of knowledgeable professionals.

Each month the Government Affairs Committee meets on topics important to our members. Typical meetings include an elected official guest speaker, training information on how to use important government tools, like a Small Works Roster for finding jobs, and during the election season, this committee conducts interviews of candidates seeking elected office.

Chairperson: Brandon Wieschhaus, Hawks Nest Ventures, Inc
Members are the heart of our association and in order to reach out to all the companies in Kitsap that would benefit from a KBA membership, the KBA has a group of volunteers that focus on just that. For those that are interested in networking, this is the committee for you! That cold call becomes much warmer when you’re able to speak peer-to-peer about the Kitsap Building Association.
Meets the first Thursday of each month at 9:30 am
Chairperson: Brady Mueller, Quality Coatings Enterprises
The Kitsap Building Association has been working diligently to address the lack of training and knowledge of opportunities that the building industry provides. A sustainable workforce must be available to fill the demanding need for qualified tradesmen and women here in Kitsap County. Some of these efforts include the creation of Construction in Motion, Trades in Motion and the Builder Grant Program. Also, the association is being asked to partner with local school districts, West Sound Tech, and various Career and Technical Education advisory committees to spread the word concerning the construction trades.
