When I talk to people about joining SCHBA, I always tell them that it is incredibly important to take ownership. As a single company or person, it is very difficult to get noticed or be heard.

SCHBA works hard for it’s members, and I’ve seen first-hand the positive impact it has on your business. – Heljar Hansen, Pratt Homes
