News from Louisiana Home Builders Association (LHBA)
NAHB and LHBA have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 virus and its potential impact on members of the association. While NAHB’s offices are temporarily closed, NAHB staff will continue to be accessible to members and HBA staff as usual. LHBA's office is open and staff is fully accessible.
With many upcoming events on your local and state level, we ask that you check your emails for communication or contact us if you have any questions. Please contact your local HBAs for information regarding their upcoming events. We will continue to communicate via newsletters and social media outlets with current news and updates pertaining to the association and its members.
As you are probably aware, the Louisiana legislature has temporarily adjourned until March 31st. We will alert you as soon as they are back up and running.
Please note the changes to the following LHBA meetings & events:
April 23: Executive Committee Meeting will now be conducted via conference call.
May 13,14 & 15: LHBA Legislative Day & Crawfish Boil | Spring Board of Directors will be CANCELLED. The LHBA Senior Officers have been discussing this event and have decided it is best to cancel. It is nearly impossible to postpone being that we do not have a definitive answer on when the session will resume. If you have purchased a crawfish boil ticket, you will be refunded your full amount. If you have booked your room accommodations, please reach out to the Baton Rouge Marriott at 1-800-228-9290 for a refund.
