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!

2024 Save the Date! Friday, September 13th 

Since 1980 the Builders Classic has been the summer highlight for fundraising and fun for the Kitsap Building Association. 

Meets the first Thursday of every month at 7:30 am

Chairperson: Kane Fenner, Zaxium Llc

Over the past year, the Builder/Developer Council has been actively addressing crucial matters for our members in the land development industry. This includes developers, builders, real estate investors, engineers, land use attorneys, and more. Our regular meetings serve as a platform for development professionals to voice their concerns and engage in collaborative problem-solving within the construction community.

This longstanding gathering has proven invaluable, allowing our members to contribute to the dialogue and find solutions collectively with our weekly meetings with local municipalities and the county. Many of the successes the KBA has achieved in addressing Kitsap area code-related concerns can be attributed to the dedicated work of this group of knowledgeable professionals.

Meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 8 am

Chairperson: Marianne Weber, Sound West Group 

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.

Meets on the last Wednesday of every month at 9:30 am 

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

Co-Chairperson: Jake Carter, Dogwood Building Solutions

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.
