Councils & Committees

“You get out of it what you put into it” is a truism that especially applies to the Master Builders Association.

Builder Councils

Our builder councils offer members regular opportunities to gather and participate in roundtable discussions on local issues affecting day-to-day business, with monthly meetings in Seattle, Bellevue, and Everett.
