BIA - Fresno/Madera Member Benefits

Three-In-One Membership—When you join the Building Industry Association of Fresno/Madera Counties you also become a member of the California Building Industry Association (CBIA ) and the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB

These associations work together to ensure sufficient affordable housing and to make the American dream of homeownership a reality.  Your local, state and national memberships provide many valuable benefits, services and opportunities that range from advocacy, education, technical support, industry resources and the latest data and information.

Advocacy—Our advocates and member volunteers work year-round in your community, Sacramento and Washington, D.C. to encourage local government officials and lawmakers to provide incentives for people to purchase new homes and lower the costs of homebuilding, such as through fee reductions and eliminating high-cost regulations.

Targeted Networking and Marketing Opportunities—We encourage our members to do business with members.  Local, state and national events also offer opportunities to build business relationships.

Our committees hold regularly scheduled meetings to fulfill tasks and goals.

CBIA has an Affinity Partnership with Ames Grenz Insurance Services to provide guaranteed Issue medical, dental and vision plans to our association members. Ames Grenz Insurance Services is a locally owned agency that has provided Association members individual and group benefit plans for more than 47 years. 

Various medical plans with Western Health Advantage and Kaiser are available for groups as few as one member. There are no health questionnaires to complete or pre-existing conditions that would preclude members from obtaining coverage. Employers may select from 15 different medical plans for flexible enrollment options. Enrollment is as simple as an enrollment form and a premium check for CBIA members to realize medical coverage.

If you have been experiencing increases in your medical plans and need the flexibility of multiple plan offerings, look no further than the CBIA-sponsored medical plans.
