About the Charlotte-DeSoto Building Industry Association:

Mission of the CDBIA:
We are a professional organization of industry leaders who advocate, educate and support our members, customers and stakeholders while being the voice of the construction industry in our community.

CDBIA is a not-for-profit organization consisting of a group of individuals and firms who care about their community - who believe that home ownership should be within reach of every American. They believe in the free enterprise system. They believe that homes and all buildings in America should be well-designed, well-constructed and located in attractive communities where educational, recreational, religious and shopping facilities are available to all. 

These members have pledged that honesty shall be their guiding policy. They believe that high standards of health, safety, and sanitation shall be built into every home. They encourage research within the building industry and give their informed and vigorous support to all sound legislative proposals affecting the industry. And through their association, CDBIA, they are committed to establishing and maintaining the very highest standards in the country for the building industry.

Association members come from all types of businesses-builders, large and small, architects, engineers, subcontractors, financial institutions, public utilities, manufacturers, suppliers, retail and wholesale firms, and marketing professionals. These firms and individuals are proud of the part they play in building the communities where they work and live.

CDBIA’s strong affiliation with the Florida Home Builders Association and the National Association of Home Builders provides an essential network for the exchange of information and ideas.

The Charlotte-DeSoto Building Industry Association is an essential organization - not only to its members - but to the community it serves.

We’re building a better community!
