Industry Advocacy is a major component of the Builders Association.  We monitor and react to upcoming issues that affect building and our ability to do business in Alachua County.  These meetings began over 50 years ago and continue to be an excellent liaison meeting with city and county staff.  These meetings may be of special interest to local builders and subcontractors.

The City Liaison meetings are held monthly at the City of Gainesville Thomas Center located at 302 NE 6th Avenue, Gainesville, FL from 12pm-1pm. Email to sign up. Lunch is $13 per person if you opt in in your RSVP.
